Hello, I need some advice. I am going to be installing an Windows XP professional OEM tonight using bootcamp beta on my MBP.

My question is, when leopard comes out, how will the instal process work?, will I have to remove both partitions and start all over again?

I know leopard will ship with the latest version of bootcamp, so will the beta just get updated?

Also how ot you remove a windwos partition if you feel you no longer need windows?

Thnaks

When leopard is released you can install it without having to reinstall your bootcamp partition, even with the erase and install option.

If you no longer want windows it is very very easy. Just run the bootcamp assistant and ther will be an option called "Restore startup volume to a single partition" or something like that. Just select that and click through and it's gone.
