So I'm a fairly new mac user and I just got my new MacBook Pro yesterday (And loving it btw!) So last night I wanted to do the whole Bootcamp thing with Windows. So I went into the Bootcamp assistant, made the Windows partition 101GB, Bootcamp said it made the partition and I put my Windows XP CD in, and restarted my computer. I did basically everything that it said. So the comp restarts and everything is fine as the windows loader comes up and everything. But when I get to the partition section, little did I know there was a problem. From doing research I guess the partition I was supposed to format was the one that said <BOOTCAMP> but instead that partition did not exist and I only saw one other that was roughly the same size as the one I told Bootcamp to make, but was clearly not the full size of my HDD so I thought that was what I was suppose to partition and install windows on. Well, I figured out I shouldn't have done that so long story short I lost my OSX and ended up having to reinstall it. So my question, is why didn't Bootcamp make the partition that it said it did and if I try to run the assistant again, and it still doesn't make the <BOOTCAMP> partition, what do I do? Would any of this have to do with the fact that my XP CD is a really old one that came with my DELL laptop back in 2002? I wouldn't imagine that would prevent the Windows installer from seeing the Bootcamp partition if I did exist but idk. I really appreciate any help as I need windows xp via Bootcamp for college.
