How to partition 1 HD for OS X, Boot Camp, and a second OS X?

I have a new MB Pro and need the following setup:
A partition running OS X 10.5.
Another partition running OS X 10.5.
Another partition for Windows OS.
I first used Disk Utility to partition the HD into three segments. I installed OS X on two of the segments.
I then opened Boot Camp Assistant to install the Windows OS.
I got a message that the startup disk must be a single volume Mac partition.
How can I segment the internal HD into three separate units?

You can probably just boot from Vista or Windows 7, but not XP, and use the 3rd partition, and you will need to carefully delete and create your NTFS volume.
Boot Camp Assistant is a 'crippled' partition manager and it sure would be nice if it was incorporated into Disk Utility itself - fully. Or 3rd party, iPartition or even Paragon-Software Partition Manager 10/Suite (never tried but it does have a Mac Boot Camp wizard assistant).

  • How to partition in order to run Boot Camp

    I have an iMac 9.1 Intel Core 2 Duo running Mac OS X 10.6.8.
    I have also downloaded the correct version of Boot Camp and saved to an external USB formatted for MS-DOS (FAT32).
    I am running Boot Camp Assistant. Problem is when I get to the option where I am to download the software to install the Boot Camp drivers (I select "Download the Windows support software for this Mac" because I do not have the Mac OS X installation disc that came with my iMac), it tells me the following:
    "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition. The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows."

    It is not giving you that message because you do not have the original start up disc for your Mac.  It is giving you that message because you have more than one partition on the boot drive in your Mac.  The way that BootCamp works is that it creates the required partitions on your Mac boot drive.  Due to limitations of Windows, you can only have up to 4 primary partitions on your drive, and the Boot Camp installation process wants to use at least 3 of those.  If you already have more than one partition on the drive, they can't guarantee that you will be able to access all your partitions properly, so it tells you that you need to re-create a single partition on your boot drive.
    If you have a good system clone, you should still be able to use the Disk Utility to restore the drive back to a single partition.  Doing this could cause corruption if not done properly, that is why I suggest having a good clone before you try.

  • How to enable VT-x for Win 7 boot camp partition MacBook pro?

    I am trying to install HAXM to accelerate my android emulator, but I am having problems. I have a Win 7 bootcamp partition in my Macbook Pro, and when I am finishing the installation a message pops up saying that my VT-x is not enabled, the problem is that I can't access the BIOS to turn on the virtualization easily like a PC user, How to enable the VT-x for Win 7 boot camp partition?
    The VT-x is running beautiful in my macintosh partition, but I can't understand why in my boot camp partition the VT-x remains disabled.
    My processor is a Intel Core I5-2435M , I downloaded the intel processor identification utility, and my processor supports the virtualization tech and hyper-threading tech.

    You can return that Mac for a full refund if it is less than 14 days from date of purchase.

    I have the same problem. Have you figured this out yet? I just bought a MacBook Air 2013. I thought I would be able to use Virtualization because it has a supported processor, but now it won't work in Boot Camp.

  • How do I remove the old windows boot camp partition which is now useless on my new Macbook pro

    I had boot camped windows Vista to my old Macbook Pro 2009.
    When I bought a new Macbook Pro Retina Late 2013, I restored from my Time Machine backup. It never put Windows Vista on as there was compatability issues.
    I recently tried to partition in Boot Camp to install Windows 8 so that I can use a particular program for work. The "ghost" partition is still there and I can't see an option to make the HD as one again. Boot Camp wants me to format the HD as single and journaled which I understand but if I restore from my backup it puts the "ghost" partition back in. 6 hours of waiting to find that out!
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Thanks for responding.
    Boot Camp shows my HD as a rectangle when I go to the "partition" tab but nearly half of it is white. Is this the free space?
    The error message I got was:-
    The disk cannot be partitioned because some of the files could not be moved.
    Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS extended (journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp assistant again.
    I was only making a small partition, so it couldn't have been too big.
    There is no evidence of any Windows installation or a physical partition but it must be there to get that message. Is that correct?
    I can't see an option to format my whole HD but even if there was, the problem would reappear when restored from TMachine.
    UPDATE:
    just tried to make the white area on my HD into a new partition and then erase it.
    I'm trying Boot Camp again to see if that has worked. It just takes about 2 hours to get to the problem stage again!!

  • How many licenses for Windows 7 via both Boot Camp and either VMware Fusion or Parallels on the same MacBook?

    This concerns a white MacBook running OS X 10.5.8 Leopard.
    If I install Windows 7 on my MacBook with Boot Camp, and then use either VMware Fusion or Parallels to access that Boot Camp partition, will I need to buy two Windows licenses from Microsoft?
    I had not anticipated this, but when calling VMware and Parallels to check out the tech support services of the two companies, the person at VMware mentioned that I would need two licenses.  When I called Parallels, I then asked the person at that company whether two Windows licenses would be needed.  That person told me that only one license would be necessary.
    I then called Microsoft.  The representative there told me that my question could not be answered by Microsoft because that company does not provide support for users installing Windows on Apple computers.
    After that, I called Apple.  The Apple representative was not familiar with this type of issue.  She mentioned the possibility that the VMware Fusion and Parallels products might be different, and that that might be why using the former would involve two licenses and using the latter would involve only one license.
    Has anyone had experience with installing Windows 7 via Boot Camp, and then accessing that Windows 7 installation from VMware Fusion or Parallels?  If so, did you have to buy two Windows licenses?

    One license. You may have to re-register Windows online when you start it up in Parallels because Windows sees that it is now running on new hardware (virtualized) and thinks it has been installed on a new computer. If the online re-registration does not work, just call the registration number and go through the automated registration process. Once re-registered then use Windows from Parallels. If you are also installing MS Office in Windows you will need to go through the same process again for registering Office.
    The process is automated, simple, and free. You have made the process more complicated than it is by calling Apple, Parallels, and Microsoft when there is an automated MS registration number to call.

  • Problems with Boot Camp and Drive Partition

    First of all, let me preface this by saying I have in the past successfully partitioned my drive and installed Windows, but it was a while back and I can remember it was frustrating, but I don't remember the exact details. Also, I apologize for the rambling nature of this problem, but I'm trying to give as much relevant information as possible and walk through the steps I took to get where I am now.
    Feel free to skip ahead to the end, the main problem seems to be I tried to create a 300 GB partition, but it didn't take or something. Now my storage is reflecting I've lost 300 GB, but it won't recognize the existence of the new partition.
    Let me just walk through what I did. I deleted my previous partition because I was having some difficulties with a few programs and the partition ended up being too small and I wanted to make a bigger one anyway. I only use it for gaming and didn't care about any of the saved games so I just deleted the partition and figured I'd start over from scratch.
    Before I begin, some technical details about the computer I'm working with. I don't know how much of this is necessary, but here it is:
    It's a 27-inch late 2012 iMac with a 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 processor with 24GB RAM running OSX 10.9.4
    The storage space is a little more difficult as that is part of the problem I'm running into, which I'll get to in a minute.
    Anyway, I have a Windows 7 Professional install DVD and a burned CD called Boot Camp, which I think is the drivers from last time I installed Windows (a year and half ago?), but since I needed Superdrive for the install DVD I just used an XHD I had to put the drivers on (like I said, I don't remember how I did it last time). I go through Boot Camp and look at how much space I have and how big I want to make my partition.
    Side note: Last time I made my partition, I'm fairly certain I set it to 200 GB, but the partition size actually came out to something like 112 GB or something significantly less. I didn't know what happened, but figured it would still be enough space and it had been such a hassle I didn't bother doing it again.
    Supposedly I have a 1 TB HD, and I can't remember exactly what it said when I partitioned the drive this time, but it definitely said I was using less than half of my capacity and I had plenty of room, so I opted to go for a 301 GB partition (the slider wouldn't let me do exactly 300) which still left me with around 300 GB of space left over on my Mac partition I want to say. I went ahead with it and it started partitioning the drive with the blue line moving very slowly and after an hour or so it was like 80% across but no longer making progress. I looked online and people said that shouldn't happen. I cancelled the partition and the Disk Utility showed the partition, but said it was unmounted or something.
    I restarted my computer thinking maybe I'd try and see what would happen if I tried to boot it up as if I had Windows installed. I also at that moment remembered that I'd had a similar problem last time because I had my XHD plugged into my USB port so I unplugged that and held down OPT. It then showed me my Mac HD drive and a CD icon that said Windows, so I clicked on that figuring maybe I could install it after all.
    It led me through a Install manager and it got to the point where it asked what drive/partition do you want to install Windows in, I recognized the screen and remembered I was supposed to choose a certain one, but couldn't remember which one and none of the sizes seemed to match the storage I had allocated to the partition. One was about 200 GB and since the last time I did it my partition came out 100 GB smaller than I had set it for I thought maybe that was it.
    However, it said I couldn't install on that drive for some reason (I can't remember exactly what it said). So I restarted again and figured I'd go back and see what I did wrong and start over. When I check Disk Utility it no longer sees any partition (mounted or unmounted or anything) and that the entirety of my HD is dedicated to Mac HD.
    The problem is, now I'm getting weird reports about the size of my drive, the amount used, and the space available. Disk Utility tells me I have 1.12 TB capacity, 301 GB available, and 819 GB used. That doesn't even add up. Furthermore, when I click get info on Macintosh HD, it tells me I have 810 GB capacity, 364 GB available, and 446 GB used. When I click on About this Mac and go to System Report and storage I get this:
    Macintosh HD
    Available: 364 GB
    Capacity: 810 GB
    Logical Volume Group:
         Name: Macintosh HD
         Size: 1.12 TB
         Freespace: 301 GB
    Physical Volumes:
         disk0s2:
         size: 121 GB
         disk1s2:
         size: 999 GB
    Now I really don't know what to make of it. That 301 GB free space makes sense as the partition I tried to create and if I add that to the 446 GB used on my Mac partition, plus the 364 GB available, that adds up to 1.12 TB (roughly, I've rounded off these numbers).
    But how come Disk Utility doesn't recognize the partition then? What should I do from here?
    I couldn't find anyone asking this exact type of question or running into this same problem before, so I hope I'm not asking about something that's already been answered. If that's the case, if you could direct me to where I can find the answer I'd be appreciative.
    Otherwise, any help or light that can be shed would be most appreciated.
    Thanks!

    The problem seems to have gone away. I did click on repair disk in Disk Utility, I'm not sure if that did anything, but now when I run Boot Camp Assistant it is showing me the correct free space, so I don't know what happened. Oh well.
    Still having trouble getting the **** thing to partition, but that topic is covered extensively elsewhere.

  • Boot camp and partitions

    Hello all,
    I am a bit new with boot camp and I am not sure about the size of patition.
    What do you suggest me for OS X and Windows partition size?
    Thank for advices

    ok, thanks for your advice.
    I would like to ask you something else. I just inmstall my first boot camp with Windiws 7 and it works fine. I also install boot cam driver, and all seams to be fine.
    I also discover that when I reboot from Seven, it start Seven. And when form Windows Seven I got to Control Panel -> Boot camp and I restart on OS X.
    And from OS X I restart my laptop, it starts OS X.
    So If I retart my system, it will restat to the OS it has been restart from.
    My question, when I Start my workstation, how can I do that from one piont it let me choose to which OS I want to start. (Excepted from olding the "option bottom"?

  • How to run WinXP Pro on iMac using both Boot Camp and Fusion/Parallels

    I have read on various forums that there is a specific order in which you need to install Windows XP on an Intel-based Mac (mine is a new iMac running Leopard), so you can run it natively with Boot Camp and simultaneously with OS X 10.5 using a third-party program such as VMWare Fusion or Parallels.
    Does anyone know the installation procedure/order in which to install VMWare (or Parallels) and XP (I bought a standalone copy of XP Pro), so that I can also run XP Pro natively using Boot Camp?
    I have been using Parallels for a year, but am thinking about switching to Fusion. Any thoughts on which one is preferred would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I am using Fusion 2.1 on a MacPro Duo. Installed it after creating a boot camp partition.
    Follow the instructions with fusion for multiple options. I boot into WXP Pro to use multi-monitors for work-related stuff on a corp. network. Otherwise, I use a virtual machine using the bootcamp partition to run both OS's simultaneously. Fusion is great (USB support, firewire, etc.) but does not yet support multi-monitors. Be sure to install boot camp drivers off of the Leopard DVD on the boot camp WXP machine AND on each/all virtual machines.......then everything works great!
    Before you set all of this up, decide how large you want your boot camp partition to be. Once you create it, you cannot change it (and the virtual machine off of boot camp either). I have grown into another hard drive and have to start over from scratch rebuilding my corporate windows machines!

  • Windows partition will not open using Boot Camp on iMac 10.9.5

    OS:  27" desktop iMac, Maverick 10.9.5, 8 GB RAM
    HD Partions:  iMac OS X, Windows 7,  Boot Camp
    For some unknown reason I am having problems getting Windows 7 to open after starting up in Boot Camp, and it's getting progressively worse. After starting Boot Camp I select the Windows 7 partition and either click on that icon or press "Return/Enter". This is where everything freezes and I have to shut down and reboot again into Boot Camp to try again. Sometimes it works, other times not. I've already tried 8 times tonight but can't get into the Windows 7 partition. The OS X partition and everything else is working fine and I have all of my updates.
    Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Dennis

    I am trying to boot into an existing W7. When I turned on the computer this morning I booted straight into Boot Camp and then successfully went into W7 with no problems, never going into the OS X partition. I later rebooted straight into OS X (the default startup) and read your comments.
    I entered the four lines of commands you suggested in Terminal and this is what I got...

    mawch wrote:how to install drivers for ati radeon 3200?and how to config xorg.conf?
    Hello
    I am using ati hd 3200 which is integrated with my motherboard. If you are using arch you can download & install through pacman. The package is named like catalyst*. You can install them by issuing as root user
    #pacman -Sy
    #pacman -S -l | grep -i catalyst
    #pacman -S catalyst catalyst-utils
    After installation reboot your machine in runlevel 1. (single mode).  Ensure "fglrx" module is loaded correctly using
    #lsmod | grep -i fglrx
    If the resultant output have "fglrx" part  the module is loaded correctly. The next step is to create a working /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Backup your current xorg.conf if needed.
    #cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bkup
    Then issue
    #aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf
    This will create a new xorg.conf file. Now we can test our confign.
    #telinit 3
    I am using runlevel 3 to avoid graphic messup!!
    issue
    #gdm
    If you graphical login screen works correctly there is nothing to do more except adjust your monitor resoloution as you like.
    To know your ati driver is working correctly issue as root
    #fgl_glxgears
    If gears are rolling happily it seems correct. You can also know more about installed ati driver
    #fglrxinfo
    Now the installed driver version is in the output 
    If there is any problem try following
    ##### Soloutions to solve various display problems using ATI Catalyst Drivers in Linux #####
    yes video playback is choppy until i ran :-
    sudo aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv
    Try adding the following to the 'Device' section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

  • Can I delete the mac partition used to create the boot camp partition?

    I am using Mac OS 10.9.5 on a late 2011 17" Macbook Pro.
    I currently have an SSD in the primary drive slot with my primary Mac partition and an HDD in the Superdrive slot that has one unused Mac partition that I would like to delete and a Windows 8 partition that I would like to keep.
    Can I delete the extra Mac partition on the HDD so I can use that as spare space? It was the Mac partition that was used to run Boot Camp and create the Windows 8 partition that is on the same drive so I am nervous that the Windows 8 partition needs to rely on that Mac partition to work for whatever reasons.
    I recently went through a huge ordeal to create a Windows 8 Boot Camp partition as I wanted it on my computer. I had previously taken out the Superdrive and replaced it with a data doubler and the original hdd, and I had an aftermarket SSD in the primary drive bay. I had been using the SSD as my Mac partition and the HDD as spare storage space. For my Boot Camp config, I wanted to split the HDD into 2 partitions and make one Windows 8 and the other spare storage space while keeping the SSD dedicated to my Mac partition. Achieving that required removing the SSD, removing the data doubler, reinstalling the Superdrive, putting the original HDD back in the primary drive slot, installing and updating Mac OS on the HDD, using that Mac install to run Boot Camp and create a second partition for Windows 8, installing Windows from the Superdrive, and then putting everything back by taking out the Superdrive, putting the HDD back in the data doubler, and putting the SSD back in. Everything works now. Understandably I don't want to break anything and have to redo this process.
    That said I do want to delete that extra Mac partition and use it as extra storage, if I can do so without breaking the Boot Camp Windows 8 partition.

    Wrong advice. Do not use Disk Utility. Use Bootcamp Assistant to remove the Bootcamp partition and return the drive to a single OSx partition. Using Disk Utility will result in lost space, lost data, and possibly an unusable OSx partition. Read the Bootcamp help and user guides.

    Not directly, but if the CPU overheats because of incompatible software, that would cause slowdowns. Do not allow the computer to run if the fan is not working unless you wish to fry your motherboard. Please make a Genius Appointment and take it in for service.

  • Boot Camp and Disk Utility giving Error for my Hard Drive Volume

    When trying to partition my Hard Drive with Boot Camp, I get an error message after a while saying that it can't be partitioned because there is an error in the volume and that I should check it in Disk Utility. After running Verify Disk, it had told me that the file count was wrong and that I should repair my Disk. I have leopard installed, but only had access to a Tiger Install Disc, so after booting to that and apparently repairing successfully, I booted back onto my Hard Drive and ran Disk Utility's Verify Disk again. Now it said that my Volume Header needs minor repair. I still get the same message in Boot Camp. Running Verify and Repair Disk from the Tiger Install Disc tells me that everything is alright and the Hard Drive doesn' need repairing. I read on an Apple article that verifying a disk that's booted can produce inaccurate results, and that it shouldn't be worried about, but I can't install Windows because of this! What should I do?

    Hi,
    you have to boot from the Leopard OSX DVD in order to repair the Leopard OSX volume on your harddisk.
    Using Disk Utility from an OSX version that is prior to the one you want to repair can indeed cause more errors than before.
    So, search for the Leopard DVD.

  • Can i just partition my HD by using boot camp 4.0.1 without install window?

    Can i just partition my HD by using boot camp 4.0.1 without install windows?
    cox i want to use rEFIt to boot up my pendrive to install windows.
    Due to some reason the boot camp 4.0.1 cannnot detect my usb drive (that contained windows 7), so thats why i use the rEFIt to boot from my usb drive

    Yes, you can.
    Let the BootCamp Assistant just make the partition and do not click on "Install Windows"-button.
    The result is a preformatted FAT32-partition on your Mac.
