    Okay umm I just did a HDD upgrade. I cloned my OS X installation onto my new HDD, however I did not clone the Windows installation over as I wanted to do a clean reformat.

    Upon booting up with my new HDD, it attempted to boot up through Windows, but it couldn't find any boot-up device and gave me an error. I swapped it to boot up to OS X instead and it was fine. However I can't seem to install Boot Camp. After restarting with my Windows DVD inside, it gives me a black screen with a single dash line repeatedly flashing.

    I think I kind of messed it up by not getting rid of the Windows partition before cloning. Does anyone know how to fix it? Right now I'm considering a full OS X reinstallation but I can't find my SL DVD.

    probably a good idea in any case.

    that's great but completely irrelevant.
