I hope someone can help me. I have a mac computer and I'm in the middle of installing windows 7. I partitioned my mac a couple of weeks ago to 25gb. I started installing windows today and when it came up to "where do you want to install windows" I went to my bootcamp partition and my computer says "windows cannot be installed to disk 0 partition 3" when I click on the show details it says "windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS". what should I be doing my computer is still on this screen and I don't know if i should shut off my computer. i hope someone can help or at least direct me to somewhere that may be able to help.

Edit: Moved topic from General Chat to the more appropriate forum, since this deals with an apple product known as Boot Camp. ~ Animal

Did you format the partition according to the instructions starting on page 6 of the BootCamp manual?
