    It means that there isn't enough constant space on your HD to partition it. This has to do with fragmentation.

    iDefrag works wonders for this.

    Another way to solve this problem is by wiping your drive, reinstalling the OS and then backing up from your Time Machine backup.

    It will defrag it enough to allow Boot Camp to partition the drive. It is not free however, but you can find it if you look hard enough.
