    Boot Camp Errors
    Hello, I own a Macbook Pro and I am trying to dual boot Windows 7 on it. But every time I attempt to run Boot Camp, I get an error saying that I have to format my Hard Drive and retry Boot Camp. So I go to the Disk Utility and I try to format it, but it wont let me. Can anyone help me? Thank you

    We're going to need more information. Which MBP do you own, year and model? Which version of OS X are you running, Leopard or Snow Leopard?

    And, you can not format your hard drive while it's mounted and running the operating system. Nor should you attempt to format your hard drive as that will destroy all data.
