    You would have to put your machine through bootcamp, install Windows Vista, THEN purchase what you are about to purchase, it is an upgrade, not an operating system. Specifically, you would have to install this:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8115452&type=product&id=1158318672967
    THEN buy what you want to buy.

    HERE IS THE OPERATING SYSTEM YOU WANT:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8112516&type=product&id=1158317974491

    just buy that. Of course, I would consider XP over Vista if I was going to use Windows.

    You can buy the upgrade version of Vista and it will work fine. What you do is install vista upgrade without the serial key. Then you have to install it again as an upgrade and enter your serial the second time.

    I thought the upgrade version of Vista was to upgrade from XP to Vista.
