i get an error We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files after i format the partition and click next to install windows

Step Four You will now be asked to select from a series of tasks. Leave all 3 tasks selected and click Continue. I CANNOT SELECT 1ST BOX -> INSTALL WINDOWS 7 , WHY?

So windows 8 is just putting a cheap version of their phone OS onto the computer? hmm, I wonder where they got that idea...maybe apple integrating SOME ios features into lion and mountain lion. The mistake here from what it looks like is putting the whole OS onto a computer format instead of just a few features. I think that windows just gets worse and worse everyday because the OS is just garbage, the only reason people use is is because its CHEAP and alot more people use it for that reason and that reason only. Just because alot of people use it doesn't make it good, just means alot of people just can't afford quality. I'm not trying to say this to sound like a fanboy, otherwise I would work in coffee shop somewhere, but instead I am just being realistic, if you have any common sense it's m,ore than obvious that windows OS is just a shitty OS, just my opinion

It's funny how OSX users are always bashing Windows OSs as if they have something to prove or need to justify using a less popular OS. If you're secure in your use of OSX, why waste the time complaining about another OS? Clearly a lot of people enjoy using Windows OS. Seems a little silly to me. Just because you don't like Windows doesn't make it inferior, your preferences just happen to be different.

"I am not a fan boy." Good one.

I followed all these steps and installed windows 8 since launch but as well as many others we are experiencing freezes related somehow to heating. Something is wrong and many users are experiencing it.

Can i non destructively partition my MacbookPro Snow Leopard HD with Boot Camp if its the only partition i have?

Question is: How the heck Windows 8 works, can't figure out why Windows is worst in any update they make. I did installed it in my mac, but I would never buy it, is too complicated and NON user. I will stick to my Mac os friendly

Windows installed on a PC is much better than any boot camp. I've tried windows on my Mac. And I've tried mackintosh on my PC. what ever OS it came with...keep it at that. windows on a PC is very snappy. Mac OS on a Mac is also snappy but when you add in another OS. It's kind of laggy

I completely agree.

In the step that shows three tasks selected, the top one is greyed out for me :/
