    do a CCClone onto an external.

    boot off said clone.

    whilst booting off the clone, wipe your existing internal HDD.

    copy the external clone onto your internal clone.

    then try again.

    it will take about 1 or 2 hours depending on your connections

    Restart and try again. Close all open programs first.

    I got this with my SSD 160GB, I wanted to give it 50GB of space, it wouldn't let me do anything higher than 40GB IIRC (it could have let me do 41 maybe 42 I don't remember, I used 40).

    I've heard that if you have any .dmg files on your drive you won't be able to partition, but I don't know if that's really true.

    Thanks. I doubted it, but thought I would throw it out there as a wild guess.
