    I am going to install VM Ware Fusion on my iMac so i can run Windows XP.

    I only have a Windows XP Upgrade disc that i have from upgrading my old PC from Windows 98 to XP.

    Do you need the full version of XP fo VM Ware Fusion?

    Replies appreciated.

    Officially yes. But I don't know whether it will work - I remember reading that Vista upgrade installed if you ignored the warnings.

    Just a word of advice: Don't use your BootCamp'd Vista install with VMWare. It tends to push aside the graphics drivers (in my case the GMA X3100) and cause it to only display 1024 x 768 or some low res like that and not the native res.

    (I had a much more detailed post wrote out, but I was on a WiFi network on my iPhone that freakin' resets and makes you reauthenticate... >_>'')

    You will need to full install disc. It is just like installing Windows on a fresh hard drive.
