    Made my first attempt at boot camp last night. Whenever it would restart with the Vista DVD in the drive it would eject the disk and and give a non boot disk error.

    I have a Vista iso image burned onto a DVD+RW with Magic ISO. Is it because it is burned to a DVD+RW and not DVD-R?

    I know "RW" sometimes means there is a another bit of software on the DVD thats not part of the ISO.

    I loaded XP just fine and when I am in Windows and insert the VISTA disk it recognizes it as a VISTA disk. It will even start he installation but stops because the format is FAT32. So I restart from XP and it still ejects the disk.

    A burned Vista ISO image sounds like piracy to me. Not allowed on these forums. If it's legal, my mistake, sorry. Why don't you use the original disk?
