    Default Free Space Partition

    I finally got my dvd to boot up, and now am looking to install leopard.

    I made a partition in Windows before, and it is set as unallocated.

    When I boot up the dvd, there are all of my partitions, but the one I made for os x shows up a "Free Space"

    Is there anyway to use this to install it?

    In windows, create a partition out of that unallocated space and leave it as unformatted. Then, erase it with "Mac OSX extended(journaled)" option in osx setup. After that, go back to "Select destination" screen and you'll see a partition to be chose. Good luck with rest of steps.

    In disk managment, I right click on the unallocated portion, then on New Simple Volume, and it says,"You cannot create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions."

    AFAIK, there is limitation in number of primary partition MBR can accomodate. It's somewhere around 3 and 4. I'm not sure though. What you can do is either combine two primary or delete one to stay within limit. Or you could as well hook up new hdd.
