The Boot Camp partition is not prepared to run as a virtual machine.

Hello,

My iMac HD crashed. I replaced it, reinstalled Leopard & updated, then created a boot camp partition.

I then reformatted the drive when Vista Ultimate asked me to do so and installed Vista.

Now I booted back into Leopard and tried to start my boot camp PC using VMWare Fusion and I get the error:

"The Boot Camp partition is not prepared to run as a virtual machine." And an explaination about how Vista wasn't shutdown properly, even though I rebooted Vista by selecting boot camp to restart into OSX.

I checked my sudo fdisk /dev/rdisk0 and I do have Fusion looking for my partition looking for NTFS. And that's the only fix I could find when getting this error.

I also formated my drive, restored from Time Machine and tried it again with the same problem.

Any ideas? I have no clue and can't find a single resolution in the forum here.

My Specs:

iMac 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB of ram

Leopard 10.5.6

Vista Ultimate Edition

Thanks for your help!!!

Julian
