    Well this is my first post just wanted to say Hey I'm KRS and I'm from Canada
    saw the site while searching for a solution for my problem. Anyways
    Here's my problem, I just got a recently new iMac 3.06Ghz and decided to
    Boot Camp because I play SA-MP which is San Andreas Multi-Player. Anyways
    I run boot camp and I'm at the " Install Windows " Menu but The driver is 5gb and I think it's supose to be 10. Anyways I put in my serial and then enter the menu " Which type of installation do you want "
    Theres Upgrade and theirs " Custom ( Advanced ) "
    Just the simple " upgrade " is grey'd out since its the first time installing it.
    So I decide to click on " Custom "

    I have a list of drivers and a driver named " BOOTCAMP " which i made when going through the process of making it.
    The freespace it has is " 5.6 GB " and here is the problem I come across which on the bottom of the screen shows.

    " Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS " Which I don't understand at all since I don't know too much about computers. But now I can't even get into Leopard, When i try to reboot to Leopard the startup grey screen pops up, stalls for 30seconds and then the process to Windows comes up which I can't complete.

    Is there a way just to leave the Boot Camp Installation of Vista, I've been trying for about two hours, and can't get anything to work back to Leopard.

    I hope any of you can help me out and I hope I havent reposted something si nce I searched and couldn't find it. Well I added as much detail to try to help fix my problem.

    Hold down the "option/alt" key at startup. The system will then see what OSes are available to boot into. You'll want to select the Mac drive (the one with the Happy Face) and you'll go back to OS X.

    Let us know what is going on beyond that.
