    I just put in a new hard drive yesterday and when i restored my time machine backup I partitioned the disk with 30 gigs for windows and the rest for my mac stuff. The whole thing restored and I have my legit copy of XP SP2 and went to run boot camp and it tells me that I can't install it because the start up disk must be formatted as a single volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for Windows. The Windows partition is completely blank... any way around this?

    Well I just re-formatted my Windows partition and now it is allowing me to continue on. Hope this works!
