    Hi I'm reformatting my mac with a new bought snow leopard CD.

    Can I do a partition after installing it? Or I need to do it while I install it? Do I need any extra software?

    The idea is to have 80 GB for the mac, 40 GB for windows - but, install windows later on - not for the next week or so.

    Many thanks,

    Grazi:confused:

    Yes, you may do it after you install it via bootcamp

    Install SL.

    When you feel like installing windows in a week or two, go to applications\utilities\Boot Camp assistant.

    That will guide you through EVERYTHING you need to do for installing windows on a partition (that it will guide you through making).

    Its pretty simple, have fun
