Just Installed Leopard, Boot Camp Won't Partition Drive

    This one is really frustrating me... I installed Leopard on my Intel Core Duo MacBook (I'm also one of the lucky few who has a MacBook that won't read Leopard, so I had to use and external drive for that.) I ran the install on the 80GB OEM Hard Drive, then cloned the drive to a new 200GB unit. Everything is status quo on the 80GB, but the 200GB won't let me partition the HD with Boot Camp. I attempted to format the disk with the Leopard install DVD, but it said the operation couldn't be completed. So I swapped the drives back out, and used Disk Util to format the 200GB as a OSX Journal Volume as it stated. Used Disk Util to clone the drive again... and the same problem still exists. None of the solution I've found on Google have helped... any ideas?

    Issue resolved. Needed to format the new drive as a GUID with Disk Utility before it would support a multi-boot partition.
