Hey, Been reading up on my problem and it sounds like I kind of screwed myself a bit... but I'll let you more experienced people have final judgment. I just upgraded my hdd a couple of mins ago from the 120 gig to a seagate 500gig , but before doing that i used "carbon copy cloner" to clone my old drive, as well as the 8gig partition i had there where i used to keep my copy of snow leopard (easier that carrying the disk around). CCC cloned both partitions perfectly. I named them Mac and Mac-backup then I created another partition using disk utility and named it Win - this is where i want to install win7 via bootcamp. The "Win" partition is totally empty. Note i did all the above by connecting the new disk to a USB external caddy. I then installed the new drive and... it stared up well and everything seems to be working till i try to install bootcamp, then it gives me this error: "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition."
