    So I have XP installed on my 27" iMac, and that's is cool news. I also have a windows 7 professional upgrade disk, that bootcamp won't recognize. I would just blow away that partition and put 7 on. I don't care for any of my data on the XP install, I just want to get 7 on there with an upgrade disk.

    How can I boot from the upgrade disk inside XP? Or is there another way?

    If I try and install from inside XP it tells me it can only be done (configuration sets) from Windows PE (Preinstall enviroment)

    as in I need to be booted from the disk.

    How do I accomplish this? I also have a 2009 late iMac, which means that the video drivers don't work out correctly, but I already remedied that with making the video driver usb drive that fixes the issue. I just need to figure out how to get to the point to install.
    Thanks
