  1. @Kuifung when you are on OS X, go to system preferences and then click on 'Startup Disk' under System. Select the OS X and then it will ask you to restart your computer. It should then choose OS X as your default startup software?

  2. this what happens to me on the parirtion part

    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.?

    unfortunately i dont…but i guess DVDR or DVDRW will do the job…right?… 🙂

    about the 2nd part….well when installing 2 windows(say windows XP professional and Vista…that like mac and windows through boot camp) …so in the windows with another windows in same comp…before inserting the disc for instn. it is necessary to back-up the files or they r deleted for sure….so my question after this was is it the same when v put windows with mac… ^_^?

    Well, if you format your whole hdd it will erase everything. I don't remember mine saying that, if did I would have said something. Do you have a external hdd to back it up just incase? I am not sure what you mean about the 2nd part, like the windows thing. What did you mean??

  5. @APoirier594
    thx for the reply…when i click partition it gives me this error –
    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.

    now what do i do as it says that the files could be deleted so back up but u say it wont…also i know for 1 thing that when v install 2 windows backing up of files is required. Doesnt it hold tru for mac and windows too??

    (PART @)
    It should work for all the games, once installed when you boot up using windows and verify a official legal copy of windows, windows thinks your just on a windows computer. So you can do anything a dell or whatever can do running windows.

    Did that help?
    Any more questions??

    Nothing will be deleted while partitioning your hard drive, unless while you do it you select the mac osx hdd everything will. You make the size of partition you want, then once you do what I said in the video, and you get to the screen to select the hdd partition to use for windows you use the one you partitioned at the beginning. You should know by selecting the partition, it will be the same size as the partition you made. It should work for all the games…(PART 1)?

  8. hi!
