    I am trying to partition my HDD with 4 partitions without having extra partitions made. It keeps making like extra windows partitions and if I partition with Mac it makes a 200MB partition and another partitions. If I partition with GParted Live for some reason it wont let me install Mac without re formatting my HDD. Im getting so pissed... I never ran into this before, I have done this many times.

    OSX and Windows use different partition styles, that could be the problem. If your using MBR then OSX won't install on that.
