    I am wanting to install windows 7 onto a mid 2008 mbp through bootcamp. I'm just wondering if I can use an upgrade cd to do it? I am wanting to do it the cheapest way possible

    No. the upgrade version is for upgrading. The cheapest way is to get the OEM version. It is cheaper than the retail copy.

    You can buy it at memory express or other stores like that. There are lots of places that carry it. But Best Buy and those places do not. Give it a search on line, I think new egg would have it.
