10.5: Create a three-partition Boot Camp setup
Authored by: RaveMsTr on Jan 13, '09 04:05:58AM

Followed some of the steps here and it works! On Vista at least.
How to:
- erase all other partitions other than Machintosh HD.
- run Boot Camp.
- create a partition for Windows
- follow Boot Camp instructions and install Vista
- after install is done(all of it, Boot Camp drivers and all in Vista) restart in Leopard and using disk utility resize your Leopard partition how you want(i curently have one more, Vista is third)
- restart in Vista
- Vista's boot loader will give you some messages about how it can't find the partition, that it's not formatted corectly... just let it be and it will boot.
Problems:
- in Leopard, Startup disk doesn't see the Vista partition so you will have to get into Vista via Restart+press Option Key.

Other than that it's running great. Will add a new Leopard partition to see if it still works!
This was done on 3.06(24") iMac, 500 Gb, Nvidia 8800GS running 10.5.6 and Vista Ultimate
