    Ok am trying to install windows and i did successfully using the FAT32 format in my drive partition but i realised that i was gonna make use video editing apps (since premiere CS3 is still buggy on the mac :mad:) that will eventually pass the 4gb limit so i decided to erase the partition and format it to NTFS.
    when in the windows installation screen it does ask

    *format partition using NTFS file system
    *convert partition to NTFS

    i tried the "convert partition..." and after the intial windows driver setup it restarts but comes up with a Disk error on the screen and Press any key to restart but that doesnt work.

    so i was wondering if anyone knew how to make my windows partition to NTFS...which option do i choose..i appreciate any advice:)

    Thanks for reading

    Use the "format partition using NTFS file system."

    It's been a while since I used boot camp, so if there is an option to format it as NTFS, do that as well before trying to install Windows.
