    I think this is spam, but in case it isn't...

    Vista and XP are bootable on your Mac. If you use Parallels or VMWare I believe anything newer than Windows95 will work.

    As far as I'm aware you can install

    XP both home & professional ( these must be at least sp2 )

    Vista home basic, home premium , business or ultimate ( not sure if these must be sp1 or later )


    Oh & knave4567, those versions you linked to are retail copy's try looking into OEM versions of whatever OS you decide on

    Another thing you should think about & look into is wether or not you want a 32 or 64bit OS ( this will depend on your Mac & specs )

    If you run XP, Parallels and Fusion work great. Vista and it's flashy aero effects won't work on Parallels or Fusion. Boot Camp does a nice job with that though.
