No MacDrive needed anymore!!

Apple has made HFS+ drivers for Windows.

Thanks for the tip! I installed BootCamp 3.0 alongside with Macdrive. Great thing is that now I don't have to use Ext2fsd to map the HFS+ partitions anymore.

One caveat though, Windows 7 won't display any east asian fonts correctly in file names for files on HFS+ partitions. Is there a solution to this?

I finally found a failsafe method that works for me (Boot Camp on both x86 and x64) using macdrive 7.2.5:

The following works for me on 3 macs -- x86 and x64, using macdrive 7.2.5:

1. Modify 7.2.5 .msi as many have already explained.
2. Install MacDrive, reboot.
3. HERE IS THE KEY: Install Ext2Fsd 0.46 (which should include Ext2Mgr 2.26). Google, easy to find.
4. Run Ext2 Volume Manager, assign a drive letter to the OSX HFS partition, and check the box to make it permanent.
5. Reboot
6. The end.
7. My MacOSX partition lives as D: and stays as such, and all HFS drives mount for reading and writing without any problem. This has worked flawlessly for me!!

I really hopes this helps you guys.

Could've saved yourself some time if you bothered to read my post...

I tried the paragon solution on win7 x32, but paragon show my disk as one GPT partition (even windows show me the right partition map).

Does anyone has an idea ?

I had the same problem with Paragon Partition Manager, it would not display my partitions. I tried Hard Disk Manager Pro and that program displayed all of my partitions correctly but I could not assign a drive letter to any of the partitions. When I right click my mac partition, I don't get that option and the option to Assign a drive letter is grayed out in the dropdown menu (can't select). Am I doing something wrong? I tried running the program as "administrator" but that didn't help.

running 32bit of windows7


Ok, I was able to assign drive letters using ext2Fsd volume manager

and now it works! sweet!

The Disk Manager won't let me select "Change Drive Letter and Paths..." for my HFS partitions. Any other ideas?

I just followed the instructions above.

I think he meant what did you do to your partitions with the install disc
