Partitioning just one part of an NTFS drive.

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I've got into a problem when I was trying to install Mountain Lion on my PC.


I have a 250GB HDD with 3 partitions on it, and I want to partition just one of these 2 partitions for Mountain Lion,

while keep the other 2 partitions as it is now (NTFS), because I use the other 2 in Windows as a backup, so I have a lot of stuff on it.


If I can do this can somebody answer me, how to do it ?


Thanks for the answers in advance!

Just make sure that the new partition is a primary partition and not a logical one. Most likely since Windows was already installed the disk is MBR. I'm pretty sure myHack patches for MBR automatically. You could give it a shot.

Well, thanks for your answer. I need to format my drive because it was formatted under Windows, so it's in MBR.

I need to backup my data from this drive then I will make a GUID partition. By the way, I use ######, because the myHack USB installer cannot boot :(
