Iwe recently reinstalled my OSX (running snow leopard on a macbook pro) and now trying to use boot camp to install windows.

When i try to run a partition through the boot camp guide, i keep getting a message "cannot partition the disk cause there are archives that cannot be moves - try to run the disktool" yada yada..

I have arround 80gb free disc space, and recently reinstalled the OS.

How can you fix this issue? ;(

Was your hard drive partitioned before you reinstalled Snow Leopard? In other words, did you use Boot Camp before to install Windows? Boot Camp only works on a drive that is partitioned as one contiguous unit. If it was, you'll need to use Disk Utility from your Snow Leopard DVD and remove the other partition. Redo your hard drive into one partition. Then reinstall Snow Leopard and try Boot Camp again.

Regards.
