If you use Parallels or VM Fusion you will have to purchase Vista Ultimate which is the only version you can install with virtualization software.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.8), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB
Currently Being ModeratedMar 10, 2007 12:01 PM (in response to Darksol360)Well your Core 2 Duo is a 64bit processor so that would seem to be the obvious choice. However be aware that, although it has been done, BootCamp beta is for designed for use with WinXP SP2 only.
Home Basic version doesn't include Aero (which is the nice looking parts including MS's equivalent of Exposé).

Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2007 6:24 PM (in response to Darksol360)If my situation is any indication, I would stay far far away from Vista. I have a PC as well as two macs. The PC is a desktop C2D with 2gig ram, updated graphics card the whole enchilada. I tried Vista and went back to XP after two miserable weeks. Vista is significantly different than anything MS has put out in the past and I hated it. I will wait for SP1 before I shift the PC back to Vista, if ever.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2007 7:00 PM (in response to Darksol360)As mentioned before BootCamp Beta only officially supports Windows XP SP2. Now as far as Vista goes when and if BootCamp supports it in Leopard I would recommend that you get the 32 bit version do to the fact that there are not to many 64 bit drivers for Windows Vista. IE 1. If Apple does not provide 64 bit drivers for Windows Vista you may be hurting. 2. If you can't find Windows Vista 64 bit drivers for your other Hardware IE like Printers etc you will be hurting also.MiniMac G4 1.42, MacBook Pro 2.0, HP Pavilion dv2213cl (Vista), Mac OS X (10.4.9)
