Running BootCamp on Leopard Any problems? SilverLining
Has anyone experienced any problems running BootCamp on Leopard?
Also, in your opinions, is a 5GB partition sufficient space?
35GB is probably more realistic, no? Will mainly be used for testing and some development purposes. timster
Any chance to put the Windows install on a separate hard drive?
It seems whenever I partition a drive, one part or the other is too small within 6 months. Just my 2 cents.
From: [ ...] apple.com
"Live Partition Resizing in Disk Utility - You may be able to gain disk space without losing data. If a volume is running out of space, simply delete the volume that comes after it on the disk and move the volume’s end point into the freed space."
I think you can change your partition as needed in Leopard, I haven't had any issues with Boot Camp and Leopard.
Thanks for your suggestion, timster. I am very quickly running out of the 120GB space, although I'll be travelling quite a bit, so at the moment prefer just to have one drive.
Interesting point, tstaheli. "I'll cross that bridge when I get there".. Thanks.
By the way, I think it's silly that they have 5GB as a default size for the Windows partition whilst 10GB is the minimum required available space. Just my 2 pence :) SilverLining
I've installed Windows on a 20GB FAT32 partition. When I now boot into Windows and try to run the setup.exe on the Boot camp CD I get the following message:
This package requires a newer version of the Windows Installer. Do you want to update the version of the Windows Installer on your system?
I click "Yes" and then the following alert is displayed:
The required resource 'UPDATE' is missing.
As expected my Ethernet Controller etc. is not recognised so don't have any internet access to search for driver updates.
Any ideas, please?
I can't be very helpful with Boot Camp questions... Once Parallels [ parallels.com] came out, we stopped bothering with Boot Camp. My only advice would be to take a look at that product. :)
