I'm thinking of using bootcamp, so when I go on trips, I can play regular games. Maybe for some other stuff. The main thing I want to know is, will this system be able to run BF2142? BF2? CSS?:black:

I was able to install and run Counter-Strike Source, Call of Duty 2, as well as Half-Life 2 on my windows partition on my macbook pro. All of them play fine. You shouldn't have a problem.

Now I'm getting an error while trying to make a new partition.

"Your disk can not be partitioned becuase some files can't be moved"
"Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format the disk as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

If you want another partition, you have to first wipe the drive clean and then start over. That is the only way you can do it.

If I wipe my HD, will I need to reinstall OSX again, or will it keep all the defaulted files?

Yes, you need to back up your HDD, format it and reinstall OS X. Then run bootcamp again.

Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...
