    Restoring Boot Camp
    Hi All

    I have trailed the length and breadth of this section looking for an answer, and while I can find posts that are similar, there is one or two extra points I need to know.

    I removed the Boot Camp partition from my hard drive a while ago. I bought a copy of Parallels in order to run windows, and that works fine. The trouble is that an editing programme (windows) that I use cannot detect my camcorder connected by FireWire, through Parallels. I have to import the footage via OS X then import it into windows. I can then edit the files, but cannot render them down using Parallels - the progamme just will not respond.

    Now my question ! - Can I reinstall Boot Camp in Tiger even though the assistant has expired. I still have the original drivers .DMG disc I made when I originally installed it....do I just need to turn the clock back while I do this, to before 30th September 2007. Will it still work?????

    I really don't want to shell out for Leopard just to get Boot Camp.

    Thanks

    Philip

    i think your out of luck, and you may need to buy leopard, would be a good idea anyway always useful to have the latest software for a machine, aslong as its not bugged up to the eye balls.

    Thanks for that Macwillis.

    I took the plunge anyway, and turned the system clock back.
    Worked a treat!...I now have a new windows install.

    Cheers
