    so recently i screwed up installing windows xp on my macbook and i was just got my macbook working again just now but im wondering what went wrong, before i started installing windows xp i used bootcamp went through all the steps and partitioned 132gb for the mac osx and 100gb for the windows, when it went to the installing screen for xp and said to partition which there was only 132gb that was only for the mac. Did i do something wrong? now im afraid of installing windows xp.

    and yes i have a genuine windows xp.

    edit : tried to install xp again but same problem occurs again, the boot camp fails to partition the 100gb and i can only choose to install xp on the 132 gb. Any help..?

    Try again? Did the partition succeed or did it pop up an error message?

    Hhmmmmmm. Could you post a picture of what it looks like when it asks you to select a partition? You could take a picture with a digital camera.(if you have one) Not sure what else could be going wrong. Can you successfully partition your hardrive with bootcamp? Does it tell you that is has completed partitioning?
