    Boot From DVD

    Boot from your Mac OS X DVD and run Disk Utility from there. There are a number of things that Disk Utility cannot do to the disk from which you booted.

    What problem exactly?

    If Boot Camp Assistant is telling you that it cannot move some files, and you need to backup, erase and restore your HD, then that is what you need to do.

    You need to run Repair from Disk Utility on the Install DVD. Insert the disc and reboot while holding C.
