    Question - how do I get started? I currently have Vista loaded on my BootCamp partition. Do I launch Vista, and run the Windows7 upgrade installation from Windows? Or do I do this from BootCamp?

    Note that this is an upgrade disc, not a full/initial install version.

    My guess is that once you have booted the machine into Vista, you would upgrade to 7 just as you would do so on the PC. Shouldn't be a problem.

    Mind you, when you're finished you might still need to insert your Mac disc to install or update hardware drivers, but I can't say for sure.
