installing windows problem in bootcamp

I had a new hard drive put in my moms macbook. I had the old drive cloned and then put on the larger hard drive. I want to install Windows in bootcamp, I did this before on the old hard drive with no problem. Now when I try and run bootcamp I get this message:



I went into disk utilities to see how the hard drive was formated and it appears to be extended (journaled):



I am a bit confused as to what to do now, the first time I had no problems at all. Any help would be appreciated.

this is running Leopard with the latest updates.

Thanks

I posted the same question on the apple discussion forums. I was told there that the Partition Map Scheme is wrong, that it should be GUID. I I cant seem to figure out how to change this. Hoping I dont have to do a reinstall for this to change.

I believe you have to reformat the whole drive, and make sure under the Options, you select GUID.

BTW, avoid cloning whenever possible. It's always healthier to do a fresh install of the OS and all application, and just copy over your documents.

I knew a guy who over the course of four computers and three major OSes only did migration and cloning. His current system is more sluggish than Jabba after a turkey dinner.

Its my moms laptop, and she has alot of files and programs I did not want to bother re-installing. I brought it to carbon to install the new hard drive and clone the old drive for the new drive. They should have made it GUID, as I cant even install firmware updates without it that way, so I am going to bring it back to them and have them fix it for me.
