    The first time i installed Winn7 on my macbook pro via boot camp, everything went normal as expected. However, after removing the windows partition and re-partitioning to download win7 again a few months after, it doesn't work.

    Generally, this is my problem:

    Once I successfully partition then load up the win7 cd, i get to the point where it asks which disk it wants me to install win7 on. I obviously pick the boot camp partition however, this is what comes up: "Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS."

    Could anyone help solve this problem?

    On the partition select screen, select the partition, then click the format button at the bottom (looks like a pink icon , I think). Then you should be able to install it on that partition.
