    Hello,
    I have a MBP with 10.6.1 and I'm trying to set up Win 7 Home using Boot Camp 3.0

    I am getting the following error message. (Please see attachment)

    The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved.

    Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.

    From what I can tell in Disk Utility I only have one partition.

    FYI I want to use about 50 - 75 GB for Win 7

    The partitioner cannot get enough contiguous space for your Windows partition. You have to do what it says. Backup your disk, wipe and reinstall OSX, then run Bootcamp to partition the disk.

    Well I completely reformatted my MBP and did the partition of 76 GB like I wanted, and it's working perfectly. Windows 7 is kinda nice, and looks great to so far. Still haven't installed my Flight Simulator X yet that's today, and all the other crap I have to put back on.
