Holding C down tries to boot off the CD drive, you need to restart holding the option key down. :D

Alright, sorry for creating a new thread, didn't see this one.

Is there a way I can partition my NTFS external HD so that my data is safe but I have a new HFS partition? Hopefully shareware. I cannot use gparted because I do not have an Ubuntu live cd.

Thanks.

A note for those of us without a Mac keyboard...keep in mind if you have a Mactel with the remote you can hold down the "menu" button on the remote to select what you want to boot from

Ah... who needs BootCamp. I use QTParted and it is more tweaky than BootCamp when it comes to partitioning. ;)

For those of you that were asking about a method of installing Leopard without burning it to a DL DVD, here is how I did it.

1) Startup Carbon Copy Cloner (google it)
2) Mount the Leopard disk image (dmg)
3) In CCC, select source as "Leopard mounted image" and destination as any partition on your Hardrive or External Drive.
4) In CCC prefs, select make Bootable and DO NOT select Erase Volume. (if your destination volume is empty, who cares).
5) Press Clone.
6) When finished, go in Start Up Disk and select that install you just did and RESTART.
7) Leopard install appears and lets you install it where ever you want.
Just select your destination and cutomize it if you want .
8) You know the rest...enjoy and don't waste a DL DVD for nothing.

PS. This is how I did it on my PPC G5 iMAC.



Enjoy! ;)

I did it and it worked great. Just don't forget to format your Windows partition to HFS+ with your Mac's restore CDs.

I installed on my MBP like this:
  • Download and extract.
  • Use Boot Camp Assistant to split my hard drive into two partitions.
  • Connect iPod (30 gig 5G) in disk mode and use Disk Utility to erase it.
  • Use Disk Utility to restore the Leopard image to the iPod.
  • Reboot, hold option, select the iPod.
  • Run Disk Utility from the installer and format the Boot Camp partition.
  • Finish the install normally.
I'm currently transferring files from my Tiger partition but everything seems to be fine so far.

I think Apple added support for booting from USB devices with the Intel Macs, but I could be wrong. In any case, it just worked.

Correct - Only can boot from USB devices on the Intel devices.

i have a mbp and have it partitioned running windows. i want to install leopard, is there a way to add an third partition without losing stuff? i open bootcamp to try to partition again but it only ask to make a mac drivers cd, restore drive to one volume, or start the windows installer.

any clue?
