    I double-clicked on Boot Camp assistant on my gf's MacBook using Tiger and it said "Boot Camp Assistant Beta has expired."

    I can't find a download link anywhere on Apple's website. WTF is this shit

    if you actually read the terms of agreement and maybe even EVERYWHERE that talked about bootcamp, you should've known that since the beginning apple has said this is a beta and will expire once leopard is out.

    it was never a secret, they never hid it, it was stated since the very beginning. at this point, it's user error.

    also, bootcamp will continue to let you boot into windows, but that's it, no changes and no downloads anymore.

    if you want bootcamp, buy leopard

    So If I was using the beta, can I still partition the drive back to its original state since its now expired?

    don't think so. beta is done with, so bootcamp for the most part is deactivated. unless they kept that one feature in.
