I have a macbook pro with lion on it. I'd like to put win 7 on it and dual boot it - on the same HDD.

I'd also like to encrypt as much of it as possible and use open source encryption if possible.

I gather that it is impossible to do it on one hdd using fde.

Is it possible to separately encrypt each partition?, What are my options?

Also, what happens if I want to update one if the operating systems?

Have you tried Truecrypt? It can encrypt entire drives, including the system drive. Updating won't really matter, since you'll only be changing the contents of the drive.
