    Hi everybody,

    I'm having great issues as I'm retrying to install windows on my mac. It's the second time I'm trying, but it has somehow become way harder. The first time I installed Windows, everything worked perfectly, untill I noticed that SP2 wasn't installed, and I couldn't install it on my windows, somehow. That was weird and very annoying.

    Now I'm trying it with a different version of XP (Pro), but Bootcamp is giving issues. I haven't deleted the old volume/partition (don't know the difference) of windows yet, as it is installed on my startup disk and Disk Utility won't delete it . Does anyone know how to delete my second volume/partition (the windows one) on my startup disk, and also how to resize the first one (the one I'm keeping)? Note: I have already reformatted the Windows partition to a different name and Mac Os X Journaled.

    This is the error Bootcamp gives me, saying that I need to reshape my Hard Disk to 1 startup disk, with 1 volume, instead of 2.

    What happens when you try to erase the partition in disk utility?
