comment In Bootcamp, I can't get past the “Create Partition for Windows” stage
After you made a partition, how did you install Windows? My impression (which may well be wrong) is that I somehow have to create the windows partition via Bootcamp.

comment Does the Apple Genius Bar replace Macbook Air battery on site?
I ended up going to the closest Apple Store yesterday. That particular location did not have the battery but I was told that there was another store within 30 miles that did, and a genius talked to that store on the phone to see if they could do the replacement quickly, and was told that they could finish the replacement by the end of today (Saturday). But because I need my laptop this morning for a video conference call, I decided to request a service after I come back from my trip.

@bmike: Yes, I probably should've visited the genius bar last year. The reason why I did not was because the battery lasted reasonably long after a single charge at that point. I've read somewhere that AppleCare only covers battery defects. Even if I had taken the laptop to Apple last year, I suspect that they would've told me that my battery issue was a result of normal usage...

Yes. My charger is working - or I think it is working. Yeah. I am really annoyed with this. The "replace soon" notification actually showed up 8 months ago ago. My old unibody macbook from several years ago only started giving me this warning last year. "About this mac" says that there are 1200 + charge cycles...Not sure what the odds are that I can get it replaced for free...But then $129 for replacement isn't too bad
