    Hi, I'm currently trying to install the 64-bit edition of Vista Ultimate on my Macbook Pro but it is on two DVD discs. When it asks for the second disc I can't eject the first disc so I'm stuck half way through the installation and have to quit. I've tried using an external disc drive but it doesn't want to boot from that.

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and how you have got around it.

    Thanks in advance,

    Why is it on two discs?

    Several folks installed XP MCE by using an external optical drive for the second disc. The only other way is to combine the two on a larger disc (e.g. a double layer disc).
