    Grateful for your advice please.

    I have a MBP running Lion. My hard disk is partition into two parts, with the secondary partition having a Snow Leopard system.

    I now wish to run Windows with Bootcamp.

    When I run Bootcamp Assistant - is says I should install the latest drivers from Apple.

    When I try to do this I get a message saying they can't be installed because the
    drive should only be formatted in one partition.

    Is there a way around this?

    Many thanks

    You need to handle the partitioning manually with Disk Utility and make sure that you get the GPT/MBR bits "right" if you ware using anything but Windows 7 64 bit. (Or make sure you implement a native GPT boot with W764).
