Hi,
I have a hackintosh with 4 x 500gb hdds

1 set up as 250gb first partition Windows XP / Second Partion OSX 10.4.10

3 others set up as 500gb NTFS Partitions Named Movies, Music and Data

All are primary partitions.

I boot from Windows XP menu using chain0 in the bootloader.

Run Parallels and it says something to the effect of me having more than 1 windows disc
when trying to run bootcamp.

With the other 3x500gb NTFS Hard disks unplugged I can start parallels boot camp no problem
at all, but I really wanted a solution where I had all my drives available to me wether in osx
or parallels, seeing as I hold all my downloaded music, media and programs on these 3 disks.

Anyone able to help????

Regards

Well, I purchased iMac 20" very recently in March. It has 320 GB hard disk. I wish to have at least three partitions on it:
1. The existing one for Mac OS X without disturbing it.
2. For Win XP OS (NTFS)
3. For Data (NTFS).
Presently I do not prefer to buy third party softwares.
Has anybody got a proper solution?
Already installed and removed Windows several times but could not get that extra NTFS partition to work.
Please help.
