    question Triple boot installation - stuck at Windows installation

    I am trying to follow the following guide to do a triple boot, but I am stuck in Windows 7 installation
    triple boot snow leopard, windows 7, & ubuntu

    I have done the following:
    1. Did a clean installation of OS X Snow Leopard on hard drive (Not yet partitioned the hard drive)

    2. Installed rEFIt
    I am not sure what the poster means by making sure it works by pressing the option button. I am assuming it means that I will be able to see the options I can choose when I press option? (I do see options to pick either "Hard Drive" or whatever disc in the DVD)

    3. Partitioned 30 GB (or was it 40 GB? x.x I forgot sorry) space in Boot Camp Assistant for Windows installation. Chose the option to install Windows later.

    4. Inserted OS X Snow Leopard installation disc and boot from there.

    5. Opened up the Disk Utility and partitioned a hard drive (called Hard Drive_2) via the Partition section as instructed by the guide. Formatted in MAc OS Extended (Journaled)

    So now, in that area I see "Hard Drive", "Hard Drive_2" and "BOOT CAMP" (so I am assuming that is what the poster meant by "3 partitions".

    6. Restarted the computer with Windows installation disc.

    Problems occur right here:
    Problem 1: I do not see anything called "C something" as the poster said. But I do see something called "Boot Camp"

    Problem 2: All the partitions that are available says that "Windows 7 can't be installed". So my question is am I supposed to "delete" a specific partition to install it?

    I have pictures of the screen which I will upload later if this isn't clear enough.

    Please advise.

    Thank you very much.
