Can't separate OS X and the Mac hardware.

You also need OS X's BootCamp to install Vista.

Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed

Where can I download Windows Vista?


Hi.

Windows Vista is a Microsoft Operative System, and cannot be downloaded, it can only be purchased, as it must be installed using a valid license number that can only be found on a genuine Microsoft certificate of authenticity.

The Operative system is the main resident software to manage computer resource and interface with the user.
Once installed, the operative system will allow the user to use a computer. A computer without an operative system cannot be used.

Other examples of modern operative systems are: Windows 98, windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OS, Linux.

Microsoft, that made Vista, does not sell the software directly. Vista can only be purchased from third party distributors. Here an example: purchase vista.

For this reasons you will not find any Vista download available from Microsoft.

Different versions of Vista where made available for download for testing purpose. This will allow you the download of the full Vista installer file, that must be recorded onto CD after downloading.
Here a download:Windows Vista Download - Softpedia.

The file available on the link above will still not be enough to install Vista if you do not have a valid version of Vista purchased or installed before on the computer. You will still be asked for a valid installation key during setup. If your computer is licensed for Vista, the key will be printer on a sticker located on the computer. The installation key is composed by 5 groups of five characters codes, like in this example: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.
If you have no valid installation key, then you will need to purchase a genuine Windows Vista.

If you decide to upgrade to Vista you can check if you computer can support Microsoft Vista by using the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor.

If you instead have Vista already installed, and you do not need Vista installer disk, but you only need to download Vista updates, you can use the following links:

Windows Vista home page

Microsoft Windows Update

Microsoft Download Center

I ve a mac, how can I use Bernina software



Select and install virtualization software for your MacBook Pro. You can choose from several popular virtualization packages for the Mac, including Parallels Desktop for Mac, VirtualBox and VMware Fusion. VirtualBox is a free, open source software package, while Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion are commercial software products

Install Windows within your virtualization software. You much purchase a copy of the Windows operating system if you do not already own it; it does not come with the virtualization software. Most virtualization software includes a wizard, or assistant, to guide you through the Windows installation. Windows will now run in a "virtual machine" on your MacBook Pro.

Install your Bernina Artista Embroidery Software on your virtual Windows system. You install software into the Windows virtual machine the same way you do on a physical PC.

Plug the Bernina security dongle into a USB port on your MacBook Pro. The Windows virtual machine acknowledges the dongle, and may ask you if the USB dongle is to be used with the Mac or Windows system. The dongle is a hardware device that provides copy protection for the Bernina embroidery software.

Run the Bernina Artista Embroidery Software by choosing it from the Windows Start menu

Os x on windows question


Hi there
The answer to your question is yes and no.

You cannot run OS X on a PC but you can run a windows OS on the new intel macs.

With the new macs you can run it either from boot up in a windows environment (Boot Camp. I would recommend XP not Vista) or you can install an application call 'Parallels' where you can run both systems side by side.

I have both on my portable. There are some windows app's that work better from 'Boot Camp' the only problem with that is you have to shut the mac down and boot to which system you want to use. Where as with Parallels you can drag files and folders from the mac desk top onto the windows. And the switch is really cool.

But you will need to buy a mac. You love it.
