Can i use this vista ultimate disk for bootcamp?
Yes you can.
You need to install it without entering the License Key. Also do not activate it.
Once done, install it again and this time enter the License Key and activate it.
For whatever reason, Microsoft allows a clean installation of Vista upgrade to be considered a pre-existing version of Windows and therefore an eligible product to be upgraded - effectively, it upgrades itself.
so first put the disk in and dont activate?
how do I install again?
and do i use 32bit or 64bit?
Just install it without putting in the License Key nor activating it. When you have finished installing it, install it again over the installation you just did, this time putting in the License Key and activating it.
Only Mac Pros and MacBook Pros manufactured in 2008 include Boot Camp drivers 64-bit Windows. All other Macs include Boot Camp drivers only for 32-bit Vista. You can download the 64-bit Vista Boot Camp drivers that will work with other Macs from the web, but you need to search for them.
Unless you have 4GB of RAM, you won't really notice any difference between 32-bit and 64-bit Vista (and even then...).
so the first time just hit install now than when your on vista put the disk in again and install?
How come I dont have a internet connection when i am running vista bootcamp and my speakers dont work?
You put in the leopard install CD and installed the boot camp drivers, right?
In case you haven't installed Vista yet, I suggest that you read this article as it's very clear as to what you need to do:
what leopard install disk? and what bootcamp drivers?
The install disks that came with your iMac.
The Boot Camp drivers are on them.
do you mean those gray disks? disk2 right
Yes, the gray ones. (Not sure of the iMac disk #).
