    I am trying to install boot camp on my iMac with a 3TB fusion drive. The Boot Camp utility is limiting the windows partition to a size of 32GB. I have almost a TB of unused space available.

    Any ideas on why it is doing this. I don't want a huge partition, but I need more than 32GB.

    Weird, I have a 3TB FD also, and was able to make a boot camp partition 150GB in size..

    It took a few tries, but all my issues with the install were due to the fact that I was using the SuperDrive with the Windows 7 disc, and that never worked. I had to go to the Windows download center and download the ISO directly from Microsoft. Then I selected a jumpdrive to install Windows.

    Is it throwing out any errors at you? Also, I'm assuming you're on OS X 10.8.3?

    Yep. 10.8.3

    No error messages. I'm using an ISO image. It just won't let me slide the size past 32GB.
