    kinda got a weird problem...
    I'm trying to install vista 64bit (2 disc version) on my I-mac 21'....
    When it gets to 50% installed it pops up saying to put in the second disc but doesn't eject the first one.
    so what i'm wondering is this some kind of bug or is there some way to make a all-in-one disc for vista X64?
    I /have/ tried to use and external disc drive and that hasn't worked for the second disc. o_O

    You should find a single disk version. It should work.

    You need this:
    Grab it from here. Most probably you have downloaded some kind of recovery media.

    I couldn't find any for vista ultimate... but I did find some for home premium (just this second) , so I'll try that.
    I'll pull that silly file out of sources and unlock all the versions...

    Vista was available on CD (on request) for people with no DVD drive. So it may have been one of that copies. About everyone has a DVD or better drive now, so the CD versions are largely irrelevant.
