My set up: iMac (OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard) with ssd used only for mac and a second drive which is 2.0 TB that I use for Windows 7. When I used bootcamp to partition the 2 TB hd, and then added vmware fusion, all is well. I decided to try to add three partitons to the windows hd using program other than bootcamp. Windows was reinstalled and worked fine. Added Fusion and it would not run. I was told by vmware tech it won't run because I did not use bootcamp to partiton. My problem is that I do not want to give Windows the entire 2.0 TB, it is not necessary. I want to add a couple partitions for storage of music, etc. Right now, mac is running well, Windows 7 is running well but fusion is dead. I can still boot to either os. Anyone know how to get around this? I just want to have three partitions on the 2 TB drive that is used only for windows 7. I do not want to touch my mac installation. I would like to again use fusion.
