Let's start this new reference thread with some interesting (and useful) information. GNU Parted
, the Linux partition editor, is capable of tweaking a Mac partition map successfully. User dekko had a borked partition map through trying to use an XP SP1 disc in Boot Camp and he used Parted to fix it.
This thread is to be used for this sort of helpful and informative stuff. Don't go posting general comments or other stuff that doesn't directly support this purpose, because I'll just have to delete your comments. Unless they are actually helpful and useful, of course.
