    When you get to the part where you need to choose your partition, select the partition you want for Vista and choose Format at the bottom. Let it format it as NTFS and you'll be able to install.

    I know you didn't want to discuss it, but it's the only thing you even mentioned.

    What do you plan to use it for? Which version of the iMac did you get? Congrats, btw! Have you played around in the software that came with it yet?

    Do what I did...I took the Vista DVD, and whipped it at the wall. Those things fly!!!!

    Then I take a deep breath, and realize that OSX is so much better anyway. Games? I have a 360 w/ a 40" SAMSUNG LCD/1080p...SSSHHHWWWEEEEET

    Buy some more Apple products. You need a Time Capsule, iPhone, and ATV now.
