    I'm now using 10.5.1.

    "Bootcamp assistant cannot be used.
    you must update your system software before using this setup assistant."
    I totally have no idea about this freaking information.
    I've tried my best to get my mbp uptodate but it still...

    my mbp is c2d 2.16G
    what kind of software should I install???

    Exactly the same issue

    It's not just MBP's. I have a Mac Mini C2d, 1.83, 10.5.2 installed and working. Boot camp 2.0 refuses to create a partition despite having 50 GB out of my 80GB, free.

    Did you upgrade to 10.5 or install from scratch? I did an install from scratch and didn't have any problems.

    I read on other forums about making sure you have the latest firmware. Run software update and get any other updates you might have.

    Create a bootable clone with either SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner.

    i just fixed my problem...


    did an upgrade before, but now i cloned my hd to an external, reinstalled clean, and used migration to bring back my settings and files. now bootcamp works.
