    Hi everyone...

    This is what I would like to do..

    Using Boot Camp I would like install Windows Vista..

    The only problem is it is an upgrade disk not a full version.. Now before you can say not possible I have managed to install it to a clean Hard Drive partition on my PC by inserting a previous upgrade disc of Windows XP...

    Is this possible on the Mac?

    Thanks in advance!

    This is possible, though I've never tried it on a Mac. Just Google 'using upgrade version of vista for full install' and check out the first link. It has step-by-step instructions. This should work.

    Thank you!

    Looks like I'll be able to do it the exact same way I did on my PC

    Yes, inspite of advice given by others to only do a clean install, I have installed Vista using an upgrade version of home premium into boot camp. As described earlier in this thread, you run 2 installs, one after the other and it ran with no problems. Activation was easy and the SP1 upgrade also ran with no issues.

    Give it a try.
