    Hello.

    I have a 20gb partition on my Macbook Pro with Windows Ultimate on it. I am running Leopard 10.5.1 and when I use Boot Camp Assistant it tells me that 'Boot Camp cannot be used. You must update your system software'.

    Can anyone shed any light on what is going on? I have 10.5.1 and that is the latest system software.

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you create your bootcamp partition prior to upgrading to Leopard? If so, perhaps that has something to do with it. You should be able to just go into disk utility and kill the partition too. Not sure if that would allow you get reclaim your space though (never done it myself).

    I did have a horrific system failure (best one I've ever had) where I was shut out of my user account and all permissions were rewritten, also it displayed my hard drive as being 0k capacity (which it wasn't) so I couldn't even create a new user account. Screwed up all my Time Machine backups as well.

    All data was fine though. I just couldn't access it all when Leopard screwed up.

    It did however leave the partition intact so I re-installed around it.

    Could this be the cause?
