It won't work because Boot Camp does more than just create a partition. Windows needs to have a boot sector controlled by a BIOS which Mac machines do not have. Instead of using Boot Camp you can use rEFIt after creating the partition with Disk Utility.

However, it sounds like from the description of the error that there may be files located in the area where Boot Camp is trying to create the partition. Boot Camp needs contiguous space in order to create a partition. You may be able to use iDefrag to move the files.

Regards.
