    Deleting the Boot Camp partition to make a bigger one.
    I just tried to install Vista only to find that the Boot camp partition i made for when i installed win XP wasn't big enough, (need at least 6.6 Gig and my partion is only 5.)

    Rebooted into Tiger and opend up the Boot Camp assistant program, it won't run saying i need to update my system software. My system software is up to date including the firmware.

    Then tried Disk Utility to delete the partion but it won't let me do anything to it. Probably because in the early stages of installing Vista i deleted this partition and Win Xp with it.

    Need help!

    You must have missed The Announcement posted at the top of every forum at this site. Bootcamp questions belong in the Windows forum.

    Try removing Bootcamp and downloading the newest version.
