The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

mac boot camp install windows 8 - additional important info/steps

i originally tried installing windows 8.1 on my mac macbook pro osx mavericks and thought that a 32GB partition would be large enough, but after installing, there was only like 4GB left, os i started over and made the partition 80GB instead (i am going to install visual studio + some other large programs).

when boot camp loads the window install, i scrolled down to the partition i made while in boot camp in mac, selected it and clicked Next:

then i got this error message:
windows can't be installed on drive 0 partition 4


so i clicked the Format link (see screenshot above), and was warned that it was about to format the drive (this is normal)


click Next again:

then the installation proceeded as normal:
