    Hey guys, I'm having trouble creating a partition for Windows using Boot Camp...

    Steps I Have Taken:
    1) Repaired Disk Permissions
    2) Repaired Disk
    3) Deleted huge files or moved them to an external drive (huge as in >6gb)

    Is there anything for me to do? I've searched these forums and some other ones but really haven't found anything.

    ^^the error message I keep getting.

    Thanks in advance!

    Whoops, forgot. The disk is in the format that the error message is telling me to format in.

    This problem has been addressed multiple times already. Boot Camp can't partition because your disk is fragmented, kind of, which is an entirely different debate.

    Use iDefrag, or backup your disk, format it, and restore from Time Machine or Carbon Copy Cloner.

    In the future, check MRoogle.

    Thank you very much. I've come across that, but heard it wasn't up to date so I didn't try it. And thank you for the link, never heard of that before.

    No problem. Just be careful and make sure you back up everything. :)
