    Default [Advice] How to make 2 partitions and 1 bootcamp drive ?

    hi all. im just wondering if you can help me.

    i have 250GB and i cannot use Bootcamp because it only requires 1 single drive partition.

    i want to partition my Mac into:
    HD 1. Mac OSX (leopard)
    HD 2. Window XP
    HD 3. partition to save all my files.

    currently, im using Vmaware Fusion but it sucks all my memory because i use Autodesk programs like autocad..

    anybody care to help? or is there any software to do this easily?

    Try rEFIt from http://refit.sourceforge.net/ it will allow you to triple boot so should allow you to create a data partition instead of another boot partition

    Hi,

    HD 1. Mac OSX (Panther) doesn't run with Bootcamp. Only Leopard 10.5.x run on Bootcamp.

    HD 2. Windows XP -> Easy, looking in /Utilities, has a Bootcamp Assistant.

    For HD 3. Your files, use a Disk Utility.app to create a partition of your backups.

    hi sir. tnx for the reply. i edited my post.. i mean i.m using a Leopard and not panther. (im thinking of leopard but instead i wrote panther.. sorry for that..)

    but i just want to clear what im asking.. i want to to have a 3 partition. 1 for my OSX leopard, 1 for windows and and 1 for my files.. and what you suggest is only for 2 partions, because bootcamp only supports one sngle partition..

    but anyway thanks.
