    Hey All

    i am about to set up my dual boot for mac osx 10.5.2

    yes i know that it runs because i put the cd in and i got to the final part of setup when it asked about the hdd when i stopped anyway.

    i need to know how i can partition my hard drive easily, yes i googled they all say that you should have made a partition when you installed windows, i didnt know that then and i cant be bothered re installing, anyway how can i make a partition on WINDOWS XP!


    Thanks

    Love xx

    Also there's one included in XP

    Click Start > Run and type diskmgmt.msc in the Open: line and click OK. The Disk Management snap-in will open.

    Why don't you just use bootcamp? That formats your harddrive for you in the process of downloading

    The one in windows will often not let you do it properly.
