How can I reformat, use bootcamp and retain image?
Ok so I have a white macbook about a year old now. I have a Time Capsule from around the same time 500 gb. What I would like to do so that I can do some pc gaming (as Crossover sucks) is to utilise bootcamp to install Windows, and I would of course like to retain all of my data on my current OS X partition, what is the best way to go about this using the Time Capsule, or not, what is the best way? Thank you.

There is no reformat required. Open the BootCamp Assistant found in your Applications / Utilities folder.

Use the option right there on the first screen to print the directions.
Read through them. I don't believe the directions could have been made any more easy and simple to understand and follow.

Well I screwed up, I clicked to begin the partitioning, then about 10 seconds after I did that thought I should close everything else first and do a restart, now it has partitioned away the 20 gb of my hard drive space but I don't know how to delete that partition... help!!
