Hey guys, been searching google and this site for days now and every time I think I found the solution, it doesn't work. I thought maybe if I posted my problems someone could point me in the correct direction and offer more tips. Basically I just want to add a 20gb partition to my system (160gb hard drive from early 2008 macbook). I'm on Snow Leopard 10.6.7 as well. I have 76.x gb of space left on my system, so I should have more than enough to make a 20gb partition. My problem is this. When I use disc utility (either booted from the install DVD or from my main drive), it stalls on shrinking my current partition. It eventually gives me the error that I should "try reducing the amount of change in the size of the partition." I've gone down to 10gb and is still isn't working. I tried booting with the install DVD and verifying and repairing my drive, as well as repairing permissions and those steps work just fine. I also tried zero'ing out the drive, and after it completed, I still get the issue. I'm not exactly sure what to try next. Is there anything I can do WITHOUT wiping the entire drive, partitioning the system, and then restoring from a time machine backup?
