    Wherever my feet take me…
    I downloaded the M$ Vista beta and tried installing it on my dad's Intel Mac Mini. It installed all right, but after the 1st reboot, it wouldn't start up saying that a piece of hardware wasn't compatible. I've run XP fine on it. I guess M$ and Apple just haven't added the right drivers yet. Anyone lese try this on their Intel Mac?

    Instructions for Vista on Macs are everywhere including these forums. Try this guide for starts. Your problem is most likely that you need to delete your Mac's EFI partition. Caution: this may cause Boot Camp to loose some of its functionality. You will also need to boot off the Vista DVD and repair your installation.

    Please search the forums next time.
