Submission + - Installing Vista on Partitioned Macbook Pro Drive

bytethese writes: "Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me on this one.

I'm a grad student studying forensic computing and as such, would like to have multiple operating systems on my Macbook Pro. I just upgraded my hard drive (as well as upgrading my RAM and OS X to Leopard) from the original 80GB to a 320GB. I partitioned the drive in 3 parts (using the Disk Utility on the Leopard DVD), 1st partition for OS X, 2nd for my data (1st and 2nd formatted as HFS+), 3rd partition I formatted FAT32 for a native Windows installation. When I had Tiger, I used Bootcamp for a native XP boot but also mounted the drive virtually in Parallels on occasion as well.

With the new drive, my plan was to run WinXP and Linux virtually with Parallels, install Vista with Bootcamp and use Parallels to boot the Bootcamp partition virtually if need be. Unfortunately when I went to use Bootcamp, it told me I needed to start with one partition to use it.

I seem to be stuck at an impasse. I have poked around the MacRumors forums, Slashdot and Googled a bit but can't seem to find the right information. I have stumbled upon rEFIt and think that I may be able to use this somehow but I am unsure how to best use it if I even can do so.

Based on what I'd like to do, is it still possible for me to install Vista natively? A major concern for me is the multi-partition. I'm pretty set with keeping a separate partition for data on the drive. I'm figuring that should I need to test, reinstall OS X or should OS X become corrupted somehow, I would only need to mess with the 1st OS X partition leaving the bulk of my personal data intact on the 2nd partition.

Thanks in advance for any help and thoughts you guys have on this!"
