    Hiy,

    I just wanted to install windows xp on my macbook and so I opened the Bootcamp Assistant. But there seems to be a problem with recognising the disk. I have a 250Gb disk. This is what it looks like:

    And if you have restarted, run Disk Utility on your HDD to verify and repair (if necessary).

    When you took that screenshot did you have the OSX partition highlighted? I did not partition my OSX disc but installed on a separate disc but the screenshot looks okay except for the partition size and free space.

    Hiy,
    I have verified the disk in Disk Utility but everything is okay so I cannot choose repair. The disk itself seems to be fine, in finder there is no problem. When I open the Bootcamp Utility there is no option for me to choose the "OSX" disc, but that is because there is only one disk. I also have restarted my mac several times but there is no change, I also have reinstalled the Bootcamp Utility. I have no clue what is going on... :(
