Hi everyone! I'm in a huge bind. Here's what happened: I have a 24" iMac (stock model) and two days after I bought it (October 2006) I installed Windows XP SP2 via Bootcamp, no problems, all went well etc.. Two months ago a friend of mine that manages a PC Hardware/Software Store wanted to know if Vista was worth it and gladly gave me a copy to serve as "guinea pig". Ok, nothing wrong either, I didn't even had to go into Bootcamp, I just restarted my Mac, put in the Vista installation disc and held the C key to boot from the disc. I installed Vista and have been using for a couple of months but I bought a game yesterday which is not compatible with it, and since I don't really care about Vista anyway, I wanted to revert to XP. I went into Apple's site, downloaded Bootcamp 1.3 and (within the Bootcamp Assistant) I deleted the partition I had before and tried to create a new 60GB partition for XP. The problem is that, when bootcamp is trying to partition the disk it gave me an error "Bootcamp cannot partition the drive because the filesystem bla bla bla.. please repair the disk from the Mac OS X Install Disk", Ok, I inserted OSX's install disk and did the repair that bootcamp asked. Went again into OSX and tried to partition yet again, one more error, "Bootcamp cannot partition the drive because some files could not be moved, please backup and format the disk using the Mac OS X Install Disc". Ok, Is there any application out there that isn't bootcamp to create a BIOS booting partition? Or is there a file management app that is independent of any OS and allows me to delete the files that may be preventing Bootcamp from creating the partition? I just don't know what to do, I don't have an External HD to backup my stuff and no way I'm gonna lose it all! Still, I want to play the games I own Anyone have a suggestion? Would be appreciated... Thx in advance.
