    Hey i was wondering if anyone could help me. I have recently re-formatted my new mac (1st time mac user) - and wish to set up bootcamp again.

    The computer was secondhand and came with a cd that had the bootcamp assistant software on it (1.3 beta).

    I installed it however when i click on the assistant it informs me that it has expired??

    Please help as i start uni this monday and i really need windows for some software

    thanks,

    Bootcamp 1.3 was beta. After the release of Leopard, Bootcamp was integrated with Leopard and version went to 1.4 full release.

    As for your WGA problems, when you mess with the computer clock, Windows can become "de-activated" due to the way in which Windows keeps information on its activation state...
