    Specs:
    MacBook 2.2Ghz, 4GB RAM, 160GB HD
    A Bootcamp Mess (unable to install Leopard)
    I have accidentally installed windows over mac OS X. When I get to a screen to choose the destination to install 10.5, my HD comes up with an exclamation mark and says. " You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume. Mac OS X cannot start up from this volume." How can I delete everything and start fresh with a new installation of 10.5 ?

    I have time machine backed up onto my external hd.

    Thanks in advance ~

    I found the answer to my problem. I just didn't look around long enough. All I had to do was double click the destination and it asks you if you want to delete it all.
    I love macs, they simply computing.
