    I think this is the right sub-form to post this in, but i ordered a mac due to be delivered soon, and I am wondering if i can use a windows recovery disk, as i have one for XP or Vista, to be able to use on a mac?

    Thank-you

    not all targets sell Windows OSes, I work at a decent sized one(but not a super target) and all we sell is the premium upgrade disc.

    Uhh..how about ebay..because you could just buy a licsence from ebay and use a 7/Vista/XP disc (downloaded...etc.) and use it that way...besides you have a legal licsence
