Hardware - Macbook Pro Software - OS X 10.5, Windows XP Home SP2, Parallels Desktop Goal: System that runs XP Pro via bootcamp, and uses the same XP image for Parallels. Data partition that is readable/writable from both XP and OS X. Like to end up with 3 partitions I guess: 1 HFS+ where I will install OS X, 1 NTFS where I will install XP, 1 FAT where I will keep data I'd like to have access to from either OS. My understanding of the issue: 1. FAT partitions can't exceed 32 GB (when formatted using the MS tool on the XP disk) 2. apple's boot camp software only allows 1 mac partition and 1 windows partition. This is a new machine, so I can format, start from scratch, erase all data, destructively resize partitions, whatever. Any tips / read-me's appreciated.
