    Unhappy Stuck with a NTFS DMG of my MCE 2005, Can't restore a Disk Utility made NTFS DMG

    Hi guys,

    I tried Googleing my problem for days now, and I'm still stuck with my activated, (was) fully functioning MCE 2005 NTFS partition on a DMG backup I made before I try Vista. I know I'm dumb enough to use Disk Utility to make an NTFS DMG for backup now, but I didn't know a better choice still now. I rather use NTFS because I didn't want to have OS X messing around with my Windows, just as I won't allow Windows screwing around my OS X :p .

    Now I'm sure it works for my Mac Book Pro with ether Windows XP MCE 2005 or Vista Home Premium living peacefully together, but not both Windows. I don't want to only use Vista, I'd rather go back to my MCE and throw out Vista, I hate that crab anyway .

    Now my question is:

    1, Is there any ways and means that I can utilize that DMG I have with the MCE on NTFS?

    2, If yes, does anyone know a way to make Boot Camp allow tri-boot OS X, XP and Vista?

    3, If I can't use that DMG, then what's the best way to dual boot or tri-boot OS X with one or two Windows installed.

    I love my Mac Book Pro so much that I really don't want to go back to my huge HP MCE notebook. At least I'm not going to drag her to work or school

    OK about booting OS X, MCE and Vista, honestly I dont know. But to restore your MCE dmg you can try NTFS3G W/ MacFuse.

    NTFS3G & MacFuse allow you to write to NTFS partition which by default OS X can't do.

    Install MacFuse Core from http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/

    Then install the attached dmg Contains MacFuse and NTFS3G. This allows you to write to NTFS partition. I have used it on my macbook and works for me.

    EDIT: I found this information on another forum and I cant remember who posted it there. SO all credit due to the unknown stranger whose work I appreciate.

    I tend to agree mostly but I'm still learning so I'll keep reading till I get it completely.
