THEY did say it was going to expire and even on the download page it was stated it would expire once leopard was released. I hate to say it but you can't claim ignorant on this one. They clearly marked it out.Well I did not even know that they were going to stop it until I tried just now to remove windows. Bootcamp assistant simply won't run and it gives you the message saying it has expired!
When you download it it told you it would expire. To remove it from a Tiger system is a bit tricky since Tiger does not support dynamic partitioning from within the OS. Partition manager or something similar might help there.When does Boot Camp Beta expire?
As indicated in the license agreement for Boot Camp Beta, the Boot Camp Beta program expires when Mac OS 10.5 Leopard becomes available publicly in October, 2007.
Boot Camp Beta 1.2 or earlier expiration
The license to use Boot Camp Beta 1.2 or earlier expires on September 30, 2007 (2007-09-30). Boot Camp Assistant Beta will no longer open after expiration.
To continue using Boot Camp Beta for Microsoft Windows on your Intel-based Mac, you'll need to update to Boot Camp Beta 1.4, until Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is available.
Boot Camp Beta 1.3, 1.4 expiration
The license to use Boot Camp Beta expires when Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is available to the public. To continue using Boot Camp at that time, upgrade to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
Important: Apple does not provide technical phone support for using Boot Camp Beta, burning the Macintosh Drivers CD, or installing Windows. Support is available on Apple's website. Fee-based support agreements are not available for Boot Camp Beta.
So just do a reinstall of the entire OS. That way you don't have to worry about passwords and such getting into the hands of your buyer.Well the thing is I plan to sell my Macbook, and then prolly get a Macbook Pro with Leopard when it's available from Amazon (or is it now?). So need to prepare the machine for the buyer.
that is what I was wondering about too...What's your system date set to? It's not supposed to expire until after 1/1/08.
NONONONONO!!!! just reset your date and time to like june 2007 or something. then you can. thats what i had to doThe only way to get rid of Windows now is to boot into your software restore DVD, use disk utility and perform a clean install of the operating system.
