    Every time I try to install ML, I get an error saying that OS X cannot be installed on the disk Macintosh HD, because a recovery system can't be created. BTW, I have a Windows XP boot camp partition.

    Is there any way to fix this without deleting my boot camp partition?

    Did you go to the website that the error message directed you to?

    OS X Lion: "Some features of Mac OS X Lion are not supported for the disk (volume name)" appears during installation

    Did you install Lion without the recovery partition? Or do you already have several partitions? When ML installs, it creates a recovery partition. In so doing, the Windows partition will be rendered unbootable because it (bootcamp) can't be resized.
