10.5: Create a three-partition Boot Camp setup
Authored by: scaine on Feb 17, '09 12:56:58PM

I followed these instructions to create 5 partitions on my MacBook: Leopard, Tiger, Windows XP, and 2 data partitions.

The key was to make the WinXP partition the THIRD partition (not the last, as most Boot Camp hints insist) because XP will only look in the first four partitions for its system code -- including the 200MB GTP 'protective' partition that GUID formatted disks put at the top of the drive.

It only took me three tries (the third after I learned of the XP limitation); I hope this helps others do better!
