First off, let me thank mac-forums and its users for all of their support as I am a first time mac user just learning the ropes.
Here is my problem. I have a 13 in Aluminum Macbook Unibody and about a week ago, I partitioned my hard drive to install my copy of Windows 7 using boot camp. Upon rebooting my MB today and trying to switch from Snow Leopard to Windows 7, to my surprise, the Windows partition disappeared! Looking through Disk Utility, it just shows that there is one partition (The Snow Leopard).
I had no software or documents on the Windows 7 so I thought I would just re-partition the hard drive using bootcamp. But, when i go to boot camp I get the following error:
The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.
Then I have to exit boot camp.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Happy 4th!
