Parallels and Multiple NTFS Partitions

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


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????

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.
