    I have done this before with no issues but for some reason now it does not work .. what happens is i create a bootcamp partition then i start the windows installation

    when it gets to the windows part where you need to pick the partition you want to install .. i select the boot camp partition and it does not allow me to install .. its says the partition must be ntfs .. ive never had this problem before ??

    any ideas ?

    im installing win 7 pro 64 bit

    You need to format the partition to ntfs for windows vista and windows 7. This should be easy to do within the windows installation.
