10.5: Create a three-partition Boot Camp setup
Authored by: marineblue on Nov 15, '07 05:25:16AM

Hi

I'm not an expert on this aspect of things, but perhaps it's something to do with the way BIOS & EFI "interact" with each other?

If I was trying for your set up, my gut feeling would be to have Disk Utility create the 3 mac (HFS+) partitions and one big windows partition.

Then I'd either use the Windows installer to partition the windows volume (I think that's possible?) as required, prior to installation of Windows XP, or else use a windows-based utility to partition it after installation, although you may not wish to have some windows software performing low-level actions on your OS X volume...
