In a wild attempt to rapidly install vista, i've destroyed a MBP.

I booted the vista setup disk, then deleted the existing OSX partitions - Vista then refused to install "windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation".

So I'm now trying to reinstall OSX and follow a dual boot guide, however now the OSX installer doesn't present any "Destination Volumes" at the "Select Destination" screen early in the installation process.

Am I screwed?


  • Haha, my friend tried to use Boot Camp and did the same thing, destroyed all the partitions somehow. She reinstalled Mac OS from the CD and has since sworn off windows completely. – Ryan C. Thompson Sep 14 '09 at 1:16

boot from OSX boot cd (hold c). once on welcome screen, go to utilities, disk utilities, and create a partition. you should be golden from there.

good luck...
