    Perhaps a better alternative might be to teach Windows how to access your OS X partition? Consider MacDrive, which is an HFS+ driver for WinXP. That should do the trick.

    I think i found solution - disk utility allows to create new partition. what i need is another 32 GB of space for pictures and Designs but it looks that the best solution will be to buy Maxtor Shared Storage II 1TB External Hdd and divide it in two 500GB partitions - one for OS X one for Windows... but first i will try MacDrive...

    Thanks

    You are doing better than me. I couldn't get the MBP to allow me to make a partition to put XP on....some message about not being able to partition the same drive as the Mac OS is on.
