    My school offers Vista for free so I downloaded it. I went to burn it to a DVD and keep getting the laser power failed/medium write error crap. I need Vista installed ASAP (see: tonight) but my Genius Bar appointment isn't until Wednesday afternoon.

    Is there any way to put the iso file on a USB HDD and use that to install instead of a DVD?

    Thanks

    No. The ISO needs to be burned to a DVD in order for the disk to be bootable when used with Boot Camp.

    Regards.
