I have a Macbook with OSX 10.7.5. I bought it in 2008, with 10.5 installed I think. Last year I upgraded the RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB and got 10.7. Processor: 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256MB I wanted to try a PC game through Boot Camp, so I found a good deal on an XP disk, http://trinitysoftwaredistribution....nge_low=&range_high= &srch_code=1&srch_name=1 It says in bold, "This Windows based product will install a full version of Windows XP on a Mac partition using Bootcamp." So I just got the disk and it's not working for some reason. Apparently, I didn't notice my version of boot camp is designed to work with Windows 7 or higher, which would have been significantly more expensive. But I found multiple sites that say I can get around that and still install XP. They say I just need to create a partition big enough for what I want to do and reboot the computer with the new partition and the XP disk. I know disk utility can partition my HD, but it sounds like it would erase everything on the HD in the process, which I don't want. I have more than enough extra space to fit the partition. Is there a way to create the partition without erasing my current files?
