I'm having trouble with my bootcamp partition. I'm using a MacBookPro 15" and just upgraded to OSX Lion last night from Snow Leopard to install windows 7 this morning. The problem I'm having is when I'm asked where I want to install windows. I'm getting:

Disk 0 Partition 1

Disc 0 Partition 2

Disc 0 Partition 3

Disc 0 Partition 4: BOOTCAMP


When I click on Partition 4 (in red) I get:

Windows cannot be installed to disc 0 partition 4. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS.


Thats where I'm stuck. Thanks for any help in advanced.

You need to first format that partition NTFS before you can install it. This is done within the Windows installer's formatting window.

Click on the "Advanced" button and format your Boot Camp partition. Read and follow the Boot Camp Installation Guide http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/boot_camp_install-setup_10.7.pdf
