    What do you mean you have a "virtual copy" of Vista? Do you mean its an ISO?

    If so, burn it to a disk using disk utility, then boot off it when running Bootcamp. You can't do a Bootcamp install from an ISO, though you COULD use Parallels or Vmare with one.

    Also, what do you mean by "recycled copy"? Is this a key someone has already used, but no longer is? You shouldn't run into too many activation problems... if you do you'll have to give Microsoft a call and explain that the other person uses it no longer, and activate it manually.

    ... Maybe... It's not my fault i discovered macs after years of ...

    Crap with pcs. I OWN two pcs wit shiny new versions of vista 64. I paid for them so i have no problem with liscencing them but ive actually found that the cracked version is more stable... However i still cant get it running on my mac. yes it does have the intel chipset, and no cd/dvd rom drive some im using a firewire external. What format should i create the partition in that i will install vista onor should i just mount the iso? if so i cant seem the get the actual iso to be mounted it changes in to a different format with macs. Sorry im such a noob
