    Hi, I've installed Leopard on my Core Duo MacBook and it won't let me run the bootcamp assistant!

    I keep getting the attached error when i try. I've run all the software updates and it still keeps giving me that message, what can i do to get bootcamp to work? :confused:

    mine works fine, its a shame you cant re-download. When the official release comes out, i'd imagine that it would work fine.

    I'll have the official release in 1 week ...or whenever play.com gets stock. I don't see why this shouldn't work, it is a copy of the final release that hits the stores tomorrow!

    Ok I've fixed this problem and thought I would post the solution, just in case others come across the problem too.

    To get boot camp to run, your internal drive needs to be set to 1 partition. I spent 3 days trying to get my head around why I couldn't get boot camp to work in Leopard and thats the solution.

    Do not create any other partitions on your HDD before you run boot camp assistant. I had set-up 3 partitions before I had even installed Leopard:

    1 x 120GB for OSX 10.5
    1 x 80GB for Vista NTFS
    1 x 32GB formated to FAT32 to share between the 2 operating systems.
