    Hello,

    I Have a MacBook Pro 17'' with just 250GB HDD OS X Snow Leo and Windows VISTA installed.

    I got an 500Gb HDD and i want to install 3 OS
    1 - OS X
    2 - Win Vista
    3 - Win 7

    I would really appreciate any help about how to make it.

    The easiest way is to run one or both installs of Windows virtually with Fusion or Parallels. They will allow you to have multiple virtual machines.

    In order to run 3 separate partitions, you will probably need to use something like rEFIt

    Thanks, but i need to run the OS in real, not virtual.
    I will check out the rEFIt. But i really need like step by step instructions
    because with this kind of task i deal for the first time and i would not like to fail.

    Check it out first....

    http://refit.sourceforge.net/doc/

    Usually developers include instructions for setting up their programs if it isn't as simple as dragging it into the Applications folder.

    And as always - things always have a chance to go awry. Back up your data before doing anything big on your system.

    No problem! :)

    Good luck. If you get stuck anywhere, posting here is always an option as I'm sure a bunch of people have installed rEFIt on their machines!
