    I need at partition on my macbook pro with windows. since i've upgraded to lion, i've got no other option than win7. After i've created the partition in the bootcamp assistant, i start installing windows as prescribed by the assistant. But when i get to the part in the installation that asks which partition i want to install win7 on, i can't pick any of the shown. it say the partition has to be NTFS, but it is a FAT32 of course. The thing is, i can't really change it anywhere in the bootcamp assistant?
    what do i do?

    When you go through the installation process of windows 7 you have the option to repartition the drive. At that point you would delete the bootcamp partition and create a NTFS partition. Word of caution, make sure you pick the correct one. Also be sure you have a backup of your OSX stuff
