    I bought this mac last year and decided to put a windows partition on it. I decided the partition was way too small so I erased it and made a new one. This time when I went to make a partition on my hard drive it said the beta had expired. I looked deeper into this message and some sites said to put your clock was to before September of 2007. Doing so I now get this message. Bootcamp assistant cannot open. This version of Boot Camp Assistant is not supported in Mac OS X v10.5. Use Boot Camp Assistant 2.0, located in /Applications/Utilities/. Well first i don't have a boot camp 2.0. So I downloaded the combo pack to make sure my firmware and such was up to date which it was. I still get this error message. Some help would be nice, Thanks.:)

    It appears to me that you are trying to run the beta Boot Camp assistant under Leopard, which has it's own Boot Camp assistant. I recommend running Pacifist and reinstalling the Boot Camp assistant from your Leopard DVD.
