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.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

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.
