What I want
I'm trying to install Windows 7 with bootcamp(Version 5.0.2 (462)) on Mountain Lion(10.8.3).
I get this error message upon opening bootcamp and clicking continue:
The startup disk does not have enough space to be partitioned. You must have at least 10 GB of free space available.
What I tried
Based on what I found on the internet:
- Defragmented my disk with iDefrag
- Erased free space from my startup disk(Macintosh HD)
- I have around 150GB free space on my startup disk
- I have another disk called DATA which has around 20GB free space only for keeping family photos, applications etc...
When I first tried with bootcamp I've got an error I don't really know what it was, but I created a new partition for windows. I thought that would solve it, and since then I got this error, and I can't repartition any of my current partitions, because it says it
can't unload the disk when I try it from the Recovery tool, when I'm inside the OS it doesn't makes nor says anything. That's why there is an empty gap after the Macintosh HD in the image.
I don't really know what to do but I need to install Windows 7 somehow. Please help me!
