    windows vista 32bit on macbook aluminum question.
    Hi I am new to Macs. I am coming from an HP Pavilion tx1120us touch screen laptop. it has a partitioned hardrive that has the recovery for windows vista on part of the hardrive I was wonder if I can use this to install it onto my new macbook aluminum (I need it for my pocket pc cell phone). and if so does anyone know how I would get it off of that part of the hardrive (I have an external drive). just don't know what file I would use.

    It won't work. You need a genuine full install copy of Vista. Read the Boot Camp Assistant instructions for requirements.

    Save your key, It should work on the same version of vista that you had on your laptop, then find a vista disk. all vista disks have all versions of vista on them. Just enter your key and it should choose the version you own. (Note, this may not work, I don't know how fussy OEM keys are, but in my opinion it is worth a shot.)
