Hey everyone.

So I got Leopard yesterday, installed it. Now, I opened bootcamp, and am trying to install Windows Xp.

Here's the problem:

I get to the Windows Partitioning screen, and this message pops up when it's halfway through the partition:

"THE DISK CANNOT BE PARTITIONED BECAUSE SOME FILES CANNOT BE MOVED.
Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journal) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."


How do I fix this? How do I SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED Windows?!?!
QUOTE Thanks

Well, I would say, "Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journal) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

But did you have your disk partitioned with Tiger? If so, how are the partitions formatted? You may be able to install XP as it is...?

I went into Disk Utilities...but how do I format it as a single Mac OS Extended volume? I'm new to using Leopard and installing windows, clearly. I just really need windows on this computer.
