    I tried installing XP, it didn't work for some reason.
    And now I have difficulty installing Vista too. I have both original discs.

    I rebooted the computer from the Vista disc and I came to the screen where it didn't allow me to install Vista on any of the partitions listed and instead asked me to load a driver which I assume is the Mac OS X disc, but I cannot eject the Vista disc in order to insert the OS X. Anybody can please help out a noob? Thanks again.

    You're on the partitions screen? And it's not letting you install? Highlight the Boot Camp partition and choose Reformat. It'll make it NTFS so that you can install Vista.
