Started Boot Camp. Downloaded the Windows stuff to thumb drive. Partitioned hard drive (90G set aside for Windows 7). Inserted Windows disk when instructed. Now stuck on a screen "Where do you want to install Windows?" I assume the Disk 0 Partition 4:BOOTCAMP (84.8GB) is where it should go, but a little yellow triangle says it can' t because Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS. There are options to Delete, Format, and Load Driver. When I clicked on Load Driver, it couldn't be found. Don't want to click on anything else without a little hand holding from the community.....


I'm doing this on a MacBook Pro 13" purchased in May.

    Follow the Boot Camp installation guides. You need to select the format option in order to format the BootCamp partition to NTFS.

    don't mean to hijack your thread, but these instructions are not working for me.  everything works as expected until i get to the point of formatting the boot camp partition.  i choose the partition as shown in the guide, click format, and after working for a bit, the "boot camp" partition disappears from the list of available disks, and when i click "next" i get a warning that the partition couldn't be formatted.  i redid the whole process twice more with the same result. 


    if it makes a difference, it's a new imac without optical drive, and i'm installing windows from an ISO image on a 4 GB flash drive.

    Thanks for your input. I finally got mine to work.

    Hope your's works soon, too.
