I have heen trying to install OS X & Windows XP on an Apple Macbook with a third, data partition. This structure is not negotiable.
So far I have been able to install OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and use bootcamp to install Windows XP Pro. Then I used Disk Utility to nondestructively resize the OS X partition to be about 20 GB. So I have a disk with 20 GB for OS X, 75 GB of free space and 15 GB fpr XP. At this stage everything works & boots properly.
If I use Disk Utility to create a Fat32 partition in the 75 GB of free space, then XP doesn't boot properly. It will load normally for about 6-7 seconds, and then it will reboot with no error message displayed. When I use Disk Utility to remove the data partition, everything works just fine again.
What do I need to do to make XP co-exist with the data partition?
