Ok, I'm working on my dad's newish MacBook Pro, and basically the end goal is to be running Snow Leopard with boot camp into Windows XP SP3. He currently has Leopard and a really messed up HD. I tried installing XP on his machine a week ago, but the version of bootcamp that was on the leopard disk wouldnt work with either his MBP or XP SP3. So, he decided to just upgrade to Snow Leopard. Well, Snow Leopard wouldn't install because apparently something happened to the disk and its not GUID partitioned. And I can't erase the bootcamp partition to create one full partition, so I have to back up his mac partition using time machine and then use disk utility to create one partition, then install snowleopard, then restore from time machine, then use boot camp to install XP. Does this sound right? Will i be able to use his Leopard time machine back up to restore everything into snow leopard? Or will I have to create one partition, then restore from time machine, then upgrade to Snow Leopard? Or will I have to create one partition, install LEOPARD, restore from time machine, then install snow leopard?
