    Question Advice needed on creating 3rd partition
    Hello

    I currently have Mac OSX 10.6.4 & Win 7 on the bootcamp.

    However I'm wanting to create a 3rd partition, so I can install another operating system.

    Is there anyway I can do this, without wiping everything & starting from scratch?

    I know that it can be done with a clean HD from disk utility on initial Mac OSX format.

    I have tried Ipartition.

    I was thinking there maybe another program out there that would let me do it, just by relocating free hard drive space - similar to CAMPTUNE?

    I'd be interested to hear if anyone has done it & how?

    Thanks.

    You might read through some of the returns from the following search. chscag has answered this several times, although I think his first suggestion is typically to use a virtualization tool instead of triple booting.
