I just purchased an individual copy of leopard so that I can install vista using boot camp. Problem is this, I allocated 11 gigs for the partitioned disk. I figured that I would have 4-5 gigs to work several different apps that I need to use. Wrong! Vista was something like 10 gigs when fully installed.

After erasing that drive I still have a partitioned drive on my computer that I cannot get reassigned to my original Mac HD. I cannot simply create a new partition to reinstall vista, the disk utility states that I need one start up disk that is journaled. I'm not sure how to remedy this one?

Anyone have any around, or over this?

How did you erased the partition? the way you are supposed to do on os X, is you go t bootcamp assistant and it should give you the option to delete and join the partition.. after doing that you should create a new partition, about 20 gigs, should be enough for vista... hope this helps!
