    ONCE AGAIN, CAN WE PLEASE HAVE ACCESS TO SELECT OUR OWN PARTITION.

    Please?

    Pretty please?

    with a cherry on top?

    or maby can we even get a team member to respond to this issue?


    PLEASE?

    i too would love the 'select your boot camp option' instead of this radio box that doesn't work for me.

    my setup for my mac pro, is a RAID 1 with two disks (and because of this I can't use bootcamps reformatter), and then I have my third disk on the drive formatted to three paritions, the third on that disk drive is an XP parition, that I can reboot into okay, (IE what bootcamp does) So why can't Parallels recognize it as valid?

    If this helps:

    Code:
    /dev/disk0
       #:                   type name               size      identifier
       0: FDisk_partition_scheme                    *189.9 GB disk0
       1:              Apple_HFS video              88.5 GB   disk0s1
       2:              Apple_HFS backup             65.7 GB   disk0s2
       3:           Windows_NTFS Untitled           35.7 GB   disk0s3
    /dev/disk1
       #:                   type name               size      identifier
       0:  GUID_partition_scheme                    *232.9 GB disk1
       1:                    EFI                    200.0 MB  disk1s1
       2:             Apple_RAID                    232.6 GB  disk1s2
       3:             Apple_Boot Boot OSX           128.0 MB  disk1s3
    /dev/disk2
       #:                   type name               size      identifier
       0:  GUID_partition_scheme                    *232.9 GB disk2
       1:                    EFI                    200.0 MB  disk2s1

    /dev/disk3
       #:                   type name               size      identifier

    Can't get it to work. Not with custom no add disk. Still greyed out. The help has a dead link to the online faq about "Custom Boot Camp" configurations. Anyone know about this?


    ./dev/disk0
    #: type name size identifier
    0: FDisk_partition_scheme *93.2 GB disk0
    1: Windows_FAT_32 XPSP2 16.0 GB disk0s1
    2: Apple_HFS Yeah! 32.0 GB disk0s2
    3: Apple_HFS Alright! 45.2 GB disk0s3

    it works for me now with a separate XP hard disk but I have to manually edit the config file to put the disk and partition number in. this is ok but the problem is the disk number sometimes changes between boots so the file has to be edited again. i appreciate that they put this manual feature in here for us but don't really understand why they can't put a simple "choose a drive" selector in there.
