Thanks for the help

i have a macbook pro with os x installed and i just recently bought 640 gb and used boot camp to partition windows, im planning to use windows 7, all goes well until the end where it says start installation..

i kept my window 7 cd in and the comp rebooted to install windows 7, i brought me to a place where i need to select the partition..

problem is I CANT SEE ANY PARTITION!!!!

though i can use my mac os without any problem but when i want to install windows with the help of a bootcamp its frustrating
