Hi all, I have a 27" 2013 iMAC (at least I bought it htis year, not sure on exact model).  It has a 3TB Fusion drive. Trying to use boot-camp to create a windows partition but I keep getting this error:

The other odd thing is I cant may the parition bigger.  Its fixed at 20gb or 0gb.  I have run permission check/repair as well as disk check which found no errors.  I also have the latest version of OSX Mountain Lion so it should work.  Open to suggestions.


Thanks in advance.

    I see these errors in the console. Say there is not enougth space when clearly there is (300gb free)

    Needed to wipe and reinstall then I could make the Windows parition.  All good now.
