As everybody knows, windows gets slower when all programs and files are set up into the same partition where windows is intalled.

So I tried:

1) Created several partitions for windows before installing boot camp, but boot camp turned my down. It allowed only itself to give windows ONLY ONE PARTITION! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

----Failed

2) After installing windows(holding only one partition) normally, I boot my mini from CD in MS-DOS. Then I tried to use PQMagic 8.0 to dismember several partitions for windows, but it reported faults in original partitioning and refused to fix it and re-partition the disk.

----Failed


Then how can I have more partitions for Windows under Boot Camp??
It's very important~ Exclamation

Many Thanx!!!!
