I tried to start up with the iPartition bootable DVD, but it goes to the in the middle of the screen, then restarts. And restarts. And goes over, and over, and over. I've done it many, many times. Another issue I have is I want Coriolis CD maker to be able to burn to a partition instead of a DVD. I have leopard, but I dont have any cds with 1.7 gb, so I cant use ipartition with leopard. As in I can't do create new template > leopard install dvd > then burn to dvd, because I don't have a big enough cd. The original 10.4.9 one that doesn't work for me could fit into a CD. Disk utility is also having mental issues. When I delete a partition, it become unusable free space that I can't merge with my original partition.
