    Since 10.8.3 now support Windows 8 for Boot Camp I decided to try it out but when I run the wizard for Boot Camp it says my drive cannot be used because journaling is not enabled.

    I go in to Disk Utility, click my hard drive but the button to enable journaling remains greyed out. How can I enable this feature?

    You have to reformat the HDD the OS is on, thus you have to do a clean install.

    When I last did a clean install the drive was formatted. I guess I did not choose the correct format to do it in, thus why journaling is not available.

    Thanks for replying.
