    Dear Macrumors' readers,
    First I would like to say that this is my first post on the forum. Here it comes;
    I'm new with mac and would like to install windows on my black 3.1 Macbook. Boot Camp continuously fails at partitioning. I've read many articles about it which say iDefrag is the solution. So I did some defragments with iDefrag (the on-line, compact and the full-defragment) and tried to partitionate with Bootcamp lateron but it did not work. What should I do to fix this.
    Thanks,
    Victor

    What version of Snow Leopard are you running?

    Have you updated to 10.6.2?

    Have you downloaded all the updates?

    How much space is there left on your HD?

    Unfortunately, from everything I've read on the subject, the only thing that really works is to completely reformat your HDD and reinstall OS X (and then immediately make a Windows partition with Boot Camp Assistant). I know, it's an annoying and stupid problem, but I have yet to see any other solutions that work. :(
