    Default BackTrack can't see windows partition

    Hey,
    I'm trying to install backtrack in dual boot with windows 7 in my MacBook but it seems backtrack see the entire disk as free space.
    I have created a free space of 10GB as unallocated for installing backtrack, but also bt can't see this space ?
    My Disk is FUJITSU MHZ2160BH FFS G1 ATA .

    I have formated the free space to FAT32, and the BT still can't see any partition,

    Have you tried booting Win7 since you started messing with your partitions? Looks like you might have futzed something up
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Doesn't look good like thorin said, just to be sure, you should run fdisk -l (that's a L) from the console to list your partitions.
