    i tried to install bootcamp while i still had vm ware fusion but i got that error saying backup the disk, format the drive into mac osx journaled and restore info back to that disc. So i uninstalled vm ware fusion and got the same error again but when installed vm ware fusion again the windows account was still there with all the files on it.

    If i completely remove the windows account from vmware fusion and then intall bootcamp will it work if so how do i remove it.

    Have you tried just deleting the Virtual Machine?

    Documents -> Virtual Machines

    Edit: Wait, it sounds like you have the contiguous space problem and not a problem with Fusion. In that case you will indeed need to back up (or close), erase your drive and restore. This gives Boot Camp the contiguous space it needs to partition.

    Having a Virtual Machine should not hinder Boot Camp at all. I have Vista installed through Boot Camp and run it through Fusion. I also have Windows 7 and Ubuntu as Virtual Machines.
