    I have a MBP with 250GB HDD. I have two partitions one of 110 GB and the other 120GB. When i run bootcamp assistant it says

    " THE STARTUP DISK CANNOT BE PARTITIONED OR RESTORED TO A SINGLE PARTITION

    The startup disk must be formatted as a single mac os extended (journaled) volume or already partitioned by bootcamp assistant for installing windows."

    I plan to keep the 110 GB partition as it is and make two partitions on the other partition of 120 gb - 60 gb for mac use and 60 gb for installing windows xp.

    But after giving the error message the boot camp assistant does not continue. What do I do?

    and yeah, i read somewhere that fat32 would be a better option. So instead of 60 gb, i would want to make the windows partition 30gb. More than enough for me.
