View Full Version : Boot Camp Partioning Not Working

12-13-2009, 07:34 PM

Need some help please!

So yesterday, I installed Parallels onto my Mac and had it installed and running perfectly fine. But I didn't really like it so I decided to uninstall it and try Boot Camp instead. However, before when I tried to set up Boot Camp I was able to partition my hard drive and proceed to the next step but never did so because I didn't have a Windows XP CD with me at the current time when I tried this. After installing Parallels and deleting it though, when I try to use Boot Camp Assistant and partition my hard drive, I get an error saying I can't partition it. It says I need to format my hard drive and have it in the extended (Journaled) format. I checked through Disk Utility and it says that it is in Journaled format. I'm really confused on what to do. T

Please help. Thanks.
