    I downgraded my early 2011 MBP from Lion to Snow Leopard. It was a pain, but long story short, I used target disk mode to install it on the hard drive and perform the necessary 10.6.8 upgrade.

    Then I migrated all my files and folders using Time Machine. Everything worked great, until I went to create a boot camp partition. I got this error:

    Can't figure out why, as my TM backup was from a Snow Leopard computer, and I completely formatted the new computer's hard drive before installing Snow Leopard. There shouldn't be any Lion anything left behind.

    So here's my question - where can I download a Snow Leopard copy of BCA? I don't have a Snow Leopard disk, I use a disc image on an external drive, and I couldn't find a copy of the BootCamp.pkg anywhere in the install files. I tried googling and couldn't find anything except BootCampESD.pkg, which pretends to install but never shows up under Utilities.

    I know this is long/specific, but if anyone can help, I'd be really grateful. I'm dying to play Skyrim. Thanks in advance.

    Strange, it worked for me, but what about this link?

    Still not working. I'm getting this - and I did log into dropbox just to be sure.

    Yeah, DropBox is currently a bit ****ed up on my MBP as it seems, only screenshots work and I have to copy the link via the DropBox website.

    Download it from here:

    Thank you so much! That worked perfectly. You have no idea how many hours I spent trying to figure this out. You're a prince, thank you.
