Hey guys i received my copy of leopard today. i have a black macbook with 2gb ram also the new hitachi 200 gb hd. i did a clean install today worked great.

went into bootcamp partitioned 50gb for windows vista. did that fine i put the widows vista ultimate disc in and it started. i put the serial number in and it brought up the partitions. disk 0 partition 3 bootcamp 51.1 gb primary. i cant install on this partion because it is not formatted as NTFS.

what do i need to do. never had this before with tiger and bootcamp ran perfect.

thanks

I have never tried to install vista, but certainly it can do its own formatting of the target drive. That was always an option in every version of Windows that I ever installed. Just make sure that you have the proper partition selected before formatting!

im an idiot i figured it out. since the partion was over 32gb i have to format it to nhts. if i leave it at 32 i can leave it at fat without reformating. someone come slap me
