10.5: Solve a repair permissions issue after 10.5.8 update
Authored by: Spinnetti on Aug 16, '09 07:30:03PM

I did try this, but my system is still jacked up. I can no longer move or delete any files on my boot camp partition when in MacOS. Any ideas? I tried this tip, repairing disc, double update install with permissions fix after etc..

Boot camp partitions are read only because Mac OS cannot mount NTFS file systems as read & write. If you are 100% sure you could read & write before the updates then consider a reinstall.
Use Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities) to confirm the format of the boot camp partition. It would be worth reading the Boot camp FAQ http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1656 before you start again.
