    I installed a WEstern Digital 320GB hd in my SR MB 2.2GHz today.

    Installation went like a breeze and I did first clone my internal disk to the new 320GB.
    Then i installed the 320GB in the MBP and I've booted from the 320GB.

    The problems started after I've tried to reinstall Bootcamp:
    "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition."

    Then I checks the Startup Disk system prefs and I can't choose the disk I've installed.

    MY guess is that I've done something wrong when i partitioned my HD.
    I still have the old disk (in a USB enclosure) and I can boot from that disk,
    but are there other things I can do?

    And how should i partition my drive?
    I chose HFS+ with Journaling when I did partition it in the first place.
    I did have the 320GB in the USB enclosure when I partitioned it btw.

    Thanks in advance,
    -tb

    Hmm I guess I found out that I've formatted the new HD with Master Boot Partition and the old HD had GUID partition Record, so I guess I've retry formatting it.

    Bah, another hour with formatting and rebackupping..
