    Hi,

    I just ordered an imac, first time mac owner. If I purchase Vista Ultimate OEM, does it have to be sp1, or can the original version be used with boot camp?

    Thanks

    tersono is right. I just bought Vista Business 64 OEM. When it arrived I got the original sealed box with the OEM Vista disk inside and taped to the outside was the SP1 disk. I installed Vista first - got it up and running and then popped the SP1 disk in. No problems.
