If it's anything like PCs you usually have to format (erase) the drive before you can partition it.

Well the problem is its trying to access files that are already in use. And since the error message is so vague its hard to tell witch files or program is at fault. My guess would be its trying to move your OS files and fails to do so since your OS uses them.

He needs to load up his system restore disk, go into disk utilities and run the check / repair option for his hard disk.

I just burnt my important files to a CD then reformatted and fresh installed everything. Went on to bootcamp XP no problems at all.
