Hey guys, this will be my first post on these forums! I've been wanting to install XP on my computer for a while and I thought I was finally going to be able to do it. I opened Bootcamp excited, only to encounter what seems to be a fairly common problem: Bootcamp wants me to backup my HD and restore it into a single Journaled (not sure what that even means) volume, because "some files cannot be moved" I searched around and discovered that iDefrag is a popular choice to avoid this hassle and after getting my hands on a copy of it I thought my problems were over. Unfortunately, after a day of defragmentation, I ran Bootcamp again only to encounter the same error. I have a nice external hard drive which I use for backup anyway, so I figured I might as well do as Bootcamp asks. However, I am currently using OS 10.5.6, installed out of a family pack, i.e. lost forever in the chaos that is my home. All I have with me are the installation CDs that came with my computer, OS 10.4.9. I have never formatted my HD, or restored anything, so I really am not sure how it works. Does it just erase whatever information is on it? Or does this involve me downgrading my OS to an older version? If I am going to end up having to format my HD, maybe I want more than just two volumes (Mac and Windows). If I partition my HD myself using Disk Utility, can I install Windows or another OS such as LINUX or Mac OS 9 on one of my volumes w/o using Bootcamp? If anyone has the answers to my questions or any ideas I should try I'd love to hear them. Thanks! Please note that I have asked google this several different ways, so I have already: -Tried defragmenting -Tried making my partition smaller -Moved large files to an external HD Also I don't know if this matters, but I have around 30GB of free space at the moment.
