Yay standard is 64-bit, and 32-bit has to be specifically labeled. I like where this is heading.

You can usually install windows by mounting the image acually, so you don't HAVE to burn a disk if you don't want to.

Most likely it will come with ones, otherwise just use 64-bit Vista ones.

Also, has anyone tried to install this yet? I just attempted it and after I put the VLK in the installer said the setup file was corrupt/missing. Not sure if they botched the ISO file or if Nero messed up my DVD while burning it.

Yeah, but if you're running x86 Vista the installer for x64 won't open at all. Thus, you need to boot from the install disk.

EDIT: Which isn't working because apparently NERO doesn't ACTUALLY know how to burn UDF files properly. *grumbles*

Why not load the thing inside a virtual machine like vmware or vmplayer?
