Hi Harry

yes, vista can be installed on I-macs ...but i need to know which version of operating system do you have (whether it's leopard or tiger and version 10.5.2 or earlier)
I say so because new version of Leopard Operating system has a feature called "boot camp"... this is Apple's "bootloader" ... which means it will help you install windows Vista on Apple I-mac .

If you have genuin vista disk handy with you and after you have backed up all the data on the apple machine , this is what you gotta do....

1. Using the Finder, navigate through Applications, Utilities and run Boot Camp Assistant.
2. Click Continue on the Introduction screen.
3. Next, you will need to specify how you want your hard drive divided up for Windows. A separate partition will be created that Windows will use. Drag the divider to adjust the size for Windows as shown below. I recommend at least 15 GB to allow for the OS and some apps. When you are ready, click Partition and your disk will be prepared.

4. It is time to start the Windows installation. Insert your Windows Vista install DVD and click Start Installation. Your Mac will automatically reboot and boot to the install DVD.

5. Install Windows Vista as you would normally do. When asked where to install, select the partition called BOOTCAMP. You will need for format this partition with NTFS.
6. When Windows Vista has installed, remove the Windows Vista install DVD and insert your OS X 10.5 Leopard install DVD. Run the Boot Camp installer application and all the Windows drivers for your Apple hardware will be automatically installed.

7. When you want to switch to OS X or Windows, just reboot and hold down the Option key to select what partition to boot.

I can't have safari


Its simple, just download it off the apple website,
http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
since you on leopard "1.5.2" you may need to run a system update because you should have been updated to 1.5.7 by now
so if safari still does not work that is why, you need to run a system update.
Here is a little guide on how to do that http://www.switchtoamac.com/guides/mac-os-x/software-update/manually-run-software-update-on-mac-os-x-leopard.html
One thing though if your new to mac's the apple menu is the apple icon in the top right corner :D

Installed vista on macbook air and some drivers dont work


Ok, so you commited the sacriledge of installing Windows on a Mac. Enough complaining... The Mac hardware is really tight to the Mac software. Some features of the Mac aren't understood by Vista (and XP for the matter). I ask myself if the F12 (eject cd) is working under Vista?

Parallels


Install bootcamp. It is the certified parallel for the dual core. If you already have it installed, try installing XP again, or Vista.

Lost install disc 1


You may be able to download an OSX operating system, but it will not be free, and if you computer is doing that, then you will not be able to get onto net. You will need to buy it at a mac specialist. If you have another computer try finding it in "limewire" this is a filesharing program, so be careful what you download as there are legal and illegal copies of stuff.

I would suggest you look in to Apple's Bootcamp. Although you do not want to run in a dual-boot configuration, Bootcamp allows you to create a CD with all of the Mac's windows drivers.

I appologize but I am not totally sure if 1) the Bootcamp drivers contain a camera driver and 2) if the camera works at all within Parallels.

Worth a shot though.
