Cause This error will occur during the Windows install if either the option "Leave the current file system intact (no changes)" or "Convert the partition to NTFS" were selected. We all have MSDN subscriptions and get a ton of CDs containing various versions of XP and other Microsoft software. Otherwise it analyzes the drive, decides the FAT32 partition is good enough for him and proceeds to install.

I would think if you did it this way, it would then ask you which format you want the partition to be created. With a very clean install disc, too. Maybe I should just try Vista.

  1. Which now has jumbled up saturated colors too.
  2. The installer isn't built to tell you when it can't PROPERLY copy files to the hard drive, only that it can't find them (and it's pretty stupid about that, too).

  4. No, it's a Legal copy of Windows XP Professional 2002 with Service Pack 2.
  5. Start up the computer with the Windows XP disc inserted then press and hold the OPTION/ALT key until you get to the boot menu.
  6. This happens, and it's a pain, but it's fairly simple to get sorted out.
  7. Boot Camp makes it FAT32 but Windows doesn't like that (other operating systems can read/write >32GB FAT32 partitions).
  8. You can read the entire Apple KB Article here.
  9. Thanks in advance!!
