    I understand that OS X can't execute a .exe file. Well duh, but I know that I could with CrossOver/DarWINE.

    Neither of them worked. ;p CrossOver would open it, I'd install etc, try to run the installed program. Nadda. It just stood in mah dock and closed. So that didn't work.

    Tried DarWINE, and uh, that just plain didn't work. I ran the install, it said it installed, it didn't.

    o.o;

    [NOTE: I DID have Vista. But, I had to delete the partition. Now whenever I try to burn the .iso I can't seem to get through it [/errors]]

    Not everything works in Wine. Use a VM instead to install Vista in.

    Uhm.
    500mb isn't nearly enough for vista, let 1GB be minimum. ._.

    I don't imagine it runs particularly well though
