Just to further describe this issue...
If you recall the caveats that we give regarding using XP disks - there's OEM, Retail, Upgrade, etc, and all just for one version of XP
Now, with Vista, they've added the ability to have all versions on one disk - but you still have to meet the other criteria that the disk was designed for.
Additionally, it's easier for manufacturer's to make custom disks, so their systems may require things that aren't built into the retail disks (such as custom SATA drivers). Additionally, they'll be able to mess around with the contents of the DVD so you may not be able to get the different versions.
Most often it's the retail DVD that they're referring to - and you don't get to choose the edition (so it's not obvious to you) - but rather entering the product key will determine the version that's installed.
