I just got my brand new macbook in the mail today. 2.4 Ghz, 4g RAM, and 250g HDD. I was excited. I played around with it for about an hour, then decided to do bootcamp. I killed it. In two hours, I killed it. I figured out how to boot from the disc, but when it came time to select a destination to install, there was no option. I called applecare, crying. The tech told me it was dead, to take it into a store. I drove 45 minutes to the nearest store, still sniffling, and waited until it was my turn. The staff there were very hospitable. I told them my story, and as I recall, they didn't even look at the mac. They told me they'd replace the hard drive, only they didn't have any in stock. After a long phone conversation, it was decided that they would replace the laptop and were sending me shipping labels. I was getting weepy again. All I wanted was a working macbook! I went home with my broken computer. Got online. Googled "Bootcamp broke my macbook." Lo and behold, the first hit was a topic here with a user who was in an identical situation as me. However, one of your users posted a response: Your macbook isn't broken. Use disk utility. I tried it. Erased the disc. And now I'm loading leopard on it again. My only fear is that there's a 32 gig partition of the HDD that I won't be able to access now. Is that true? And have I fixed my macbook? It's currently installing leopard.
