Hi all, Ive got a bit of a problem here. I am trying to triple boot lion, windows 7 x64, and windows 2003 sp2 (yes windows 2003, not xp) anyways heres the issue. I have lion currently installed, and windows 2003 successfully installed. Next would be windows 7. Now I know that windows 7 x64, can boot from a GPT. 2003 cannot. Disk Utility formats the first four partitions of the drive (since MBR has a max of 4 partitions) as a MBR/GPT hybrid. OS X Lion, has a recovery partition, as the second one on the drive. Here is my setup in order: (500gb total) 200mb - EFI boot 324gb - Lion 650mb - Recovery 45gb - Windows 2003 129gb - windows 7 Now obviously the first 4 partitions are the EFI boot, my lion installation, recovery, and win 2003. That makes windows 7 the 5th and therefore not on the MBR. The bios that this mac emulates, must not have access to the GPT, because windows 7 should boot from it (I have a PC using UEFI and windows 7 so thats confirmed) So the big question, I do not need a recovery partition for lion, Ive got 50 other computers if anything goes wrong I will just reinstall it, so Its a waste to me. And its using up my MBR.. So how can I delete it, and install lion so that it does not create another one? I can see all of the partitions in DU (I enabled it to show all partitions) but there is no way that I can see to delete it. I've read about using snow leopard to do it, but I want to reinstall lion, which would just re-create the recovery drive..so that is moot. This is a MacBook Pro, so installing a second hard disk is pointless to me as I really need my optical drive. Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.
