    I've had no problem partitioning HDDs before, but Bootcamp Assistant won't partition my Intel X25M.

    I receive an error message saying: "Some files cannot be moved. Wipe drive, reload files and try again."

    Any suggestions?

    This one will be pretty easy:

    Wipe drive, reload files and try again

    Is there really no other option? I'm getting the same problem and my MBP is all of 3 days old. Are the files really that 'fragmented'?

    According to Apple, the only thing to do is to reinstall Mac OS X.

    I did the whole time machine restore thing - left it to run overnight. Works now. How exceedingly odd!

    Repair disk permissions, repair disk (from Disk Utility [from your restore disk]). In fact, do both. Reboot, try again. Voila. ^.^
