Hi all.

I've finally gotten around to installing OS X back on my powerbook, and now I've hit a horrible-looking warning message in the OS-X 'Disk Utility' app. I'm using it to format. It says:

Quote:
Partitioning a disk will destroy all information on both volumes of the disk.

This disk has 2 volumes:
"disk0s5"
"disk0s6"

Are you sure you wish to partition the disk "TOSHIBA
MK6021GAS"?


I'm not sure why Disk Utility only sees 2 'volumes'. There are 8 partitions on the disk. I'm relatively sure that "disk0s5" is my main Linux partition.

Is it serious about destroying "all information on both volumes"? Maybe I can format the partition in Linux and then return to the OS-X installer?

do you have any free space at the end of your disk? if so, then its okay to create an HFS+ partition in that space, otherwise, doing anything will erase your HD

Yes I have 26 GB or so free at the end of the disk.
I am, however, quite worried about that message ( first post ). Are you sure it's not going to wipe the lot?

yes.

changing the size of, or changing the location of any partition will erase the disk. deleting a partition, i'm not sure, but creating a partition in free space is fine.

though, i don't think you will be able to fit an os x installation in 2GB
