10.4: Create multi-partition Boot Camp disks
Authored by: boli on Apr 18, '06 01:52:34AM
well, on my PPC mac (quad G5) i could. i could even boot off it (only when Mac OS X v10.4.6 was installed on it, with an earlier version it didn't work), but according to replies to my comments by sphns at macgeekery and afp548 only few PPC macs can boot off a "GPT disk", most can't.

however, the 'diskutil resizeVolume' did not work on the "GPT disk", which according to another reply by the same person is normal: it only works on intel macs. (this was my main reason to use GPT)

additionally, using GPT created a 200 MB partition called "EFI" (invisible from the GUI). so for now i have no reason to use GPT on my PPC mac, even though i could.

fds copied sphns's comments over, see here
