    I just got my Mac back from the shop after getting a new hard drive installed (the old one was hosed) and I'd like to get Boot Camp set up again but I'm having problems. I have a 2006 iMac CoreDuo running OS X 10.5.6.

    When I tried to use Boot Camp Assistant the other day I got the following error message: "Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used. You must update your computer's system software."

    Here's what I have checked already:
    - My system software is current.
    - My version of boot camp assistant is current.
    - My firmware is current.
    - Journaling is enabled on the drive.

    Any ideas on what to check next? Thanks!
