I've searched for my specific problem, but couldn't find a solution that worked, so hopefully there is someone that can give me some good advice. I want to install Windows XP on my new imac. My friend (a trustworthy friend, mind you) had given me a burned copy of his XP professional disc. I ran the boot camp utility, partitioned part of my harddrive as a FAT32 (32GB) partition, and inserted my disc - all as the boot camp utility instructed. Everything ran normally. My mac booted up from the windows disc, and it went to the blue screen installer - normal. Then, it goes to the screen that asks me to select a drive to format for the Windows OS - and here's where the problem is. The Windows installer only recognizes the main Mac OS drive, not the 32 GB partition that I set aside for it through boot camp. Is there any way to redirect the installer to read the boot camp partition? Can anyone help?
