    Hey guys, I'm going to re-install my Bootcamp. XP -> Windows 7. Whats the procedure, simply boot from the Windows disk. Or will I need to remove the partition and use the Boot Camp wizard again?

    Cheers

    Just boot from the Windows disc. Format the Windows partition within the Windows setup application.

    From everything I've read, the safest most surefire way is to delete the partition with Boot Camp and start from scratch. Better safe now and save yourself any headache than sorry later on.

    I decided to go the long route and delete the entire partition and start again. It's all up and running now, just waiting for Steam to restore my backup....it's taking ages!! :mad:

    The good news is you only have to do it once. :)
