I have attempted to follow the instructions set forth by ( large-%282.2-tb-or-larger-%29-drive-in-lion-%2810.7%29-and-later). I just purchased my new 27" iMac with a 3 TB HDD. Well as I already now know, that is the root of the problem. And apparently for some reason Boot Camp will not work on 3TB mac. But I encountered a secondary issue when attempting to use the work around that twocanoes had found. When attempting to create a 3rd partion (creating 3 1TB partions as told to do so by the instruction) I am only able to make 1 partion. I only have the option to remove it. I cannot add a 2nd partion to make my 3 equal partions. Can someone please direct me to a resolution to create my third partion.


From what I have already looked up it is an issue relating to Lion. Any help would be appreciated. Suggestions, link, anything!
