I made an XP partition again after I didn't like Vista. I had deleted my XP partition recently because I wanted Vista on my MBP. And I installed Vista two times and had the same problem: So let me just tell you what the problem is and how it started.. I got the XP CD and put it in and so I made a partition and formatted it to FAT32, installed all the drivers in XP through the Leopard install disc and come back into OS X and I see that my Boot camp Partition is there as a hard disk icon on my desktop and is named "NO NAME" I thought this was weird because the last time I installed XP, its name was "Untitled" Anyways, I thought it was just something trivial and open up VMWare to make my partition run as a virtual machine. It detected the Boot camp Partition and I click Run and I get the following message: *myusername* is of course my username but I just changed that in the above quotevsince it was my first name But why is this message coming up? What is wrong? Do I have to do the whole thing over again? This also happened with Vista, that's why I ended up installing Xp, only to find that it exists here too. So what's the problem. Thanks in advace to anyone who helps. I am really frustrated at this and ho its not working. I have wasted almost 3 ours installing Vista and Xp and both have failed to run as a virtual machine.
