    I need to add an ubuntu partition to my macbook pro (5.1 version, first unibody 15" from oct 2008).

    I need ubuntu to SBF flash my phone. Windows 7 64 bit pro has issues with motorola usb drivers. Anyway, trust me, I need ubuntu to boot from HD. It cannot be running on livecd, and it cannot be running on virtual machine.

    Now. I have used REfit before to dual boot OSX and linux. But I really want to maintain my windows partition.

    Is there a way I can maintain the two partitions I currently have and install ubuntu to a third 10 gig partition?

    Thanks in advance. Move as needed.

    You should be able to add a partition in apples Disk Utility...
