So, I have been enountering alot of issues trying to use Boot Camp to put a Windows partition on my laptop. Without going into too much unnecessary details, I will say that I DID used to have a partition which I had removed. Now it seems that that is the issue.

But the real reason for my question is that, on my quest to try and resolve my issue with Boot Camp, I have realized that my available space is very limited so I want to attempt to clear out most of the unnecessary programs, etc, that I have on my hard drive. I really only ever use Itunes, Microsoft Office and Safari. Of course, removing some of the programs manually isn't enough, its not doing much for clearing out my space, nor is deleting all my files that I already have copies for. So I wanted to restore my laptop back to factory settings, replace the programs I do want and my Itunes library  and get my Windows partition done and then work up from there.


Now, I see there are alot of threads adressing this issue but I want to confirm what is the right process of doing this for my Macbook. As you can see, I am running a pretty out-dated OS on a fairly old Macbook. Here are my stats:



Mac OS X 10.5.8

Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory 3GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

Capacity  232.89 GB


I hope you guys can help me out
