    Will the upgrade version of Vista Home Premium install on a mac? I think it requires booting from the dvd and holding down a key combination??? Not sure... I know it can install over itself to become a full version, but I was just wondering if it can even install the first time. Thanks

    Also I was told to run Vista 64 because it's more stable, but wow, that thing is expensive! Does anyone know somewhere cheap I can get the 64 bit version?

    It works perfectly on Macs. Of course, to be legal, you should have a license for a previous version of Windows that you will be "upgrading from" on the machine, even though that upgrade didn't actually take place.
