Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

The pre-installed boot disk of iPartition v3.3.1 requires burning to a DVD blank otherwise it will fail. This is despite the image being able to easily fit onto blank CD media. It requires a PPC Mac with a DVD burner/player which is capable of booting up to Mac OS X 10.4.6.

The image was created on a G4 Mac mini. It is untested for use on any other Mac.

Note: Even tho' the image can easily fit on to a CD it requires burning to a DVD blank - otherwise it will fail.

I was able to burn this to a CD without issue using Burn ( It booted just fine in my Power Mac G4 Cube which was having trouble reading the burned DVD.

btw if anyone is trying to burn this from a PPC mac Burn v2.5.1 is what you're looking for (

For DL #3: (3.4.5 License Key), rename license key as "iPartition3.licenseKey" and copy it to ~/Library/Application Support/iPartition

Worked for me on an iMac with 10.6.8 Smile

Curiously, the key files for 331 & 345 download appear to be the same file in each folder. i.e. checksums for both are the same. So maybe a boo boo by the uploader?

The 331 & 345 "new" license key files didn't work for me, luckily I saved the "old" key file before it was removed, because it does work (my Tiger Server 10.4.11 PPC). Reuploaded.

So this program is going to allow me to partition drives bigger than 2.2TB with block-level precision such that I won't need an offlimits straddle partition. Plus I can remove every 128MB partition that precedes data partitions because they're for booting and/or softraid.

This will speed up the mounting and unmounting of my drives and reduce desktop clutter caused by straddle partitions. So I'll vote 5 starz.

pleas some PPC mac boot cd image, created on real mac?

@ruthan: I've added a DVD image above which may (or may not) work for you. Note: Even tho' the image can easily fit on to a CD it requires burning to a DVD blank - otherwise it will fail. I used the 10.4.6 Tiger install DVD to create the image on a G4 Mac mini so that's likely why it must go back onto a DVD blank.
So your Mac will also need a DVD and be able to run 10.4.6

That aside, the boot disk burns back to a good boot disk using Disk Utility and works well for me.

If you want to change system partition size, you need to create bootable cd with iPartition with help of data from Mac OS install this.
If you using emulation burn cd is PITA.
Can someone just pleas some PPC mac boot cd image, created on real mac?

Thank you josephlj945, working now iPartition 3.3.1 on Tiger.
Send a message to the developer yesterday via payypal (only way I could find to reach him) , but no answer ...

EDIT: Just got his kind response :
Hi Gaël,

FYI, I’ve uploaded a new license key for iPartition 3 to the Coriolis Systems museum website. I don’t know why the one that was there doesn’t work, but I’ve tested the new one and it definitely activated iPartition 3 successfully for me.

Sorry about that.

Kind regards,


So should work fine now .

Turns out I had downloaded this app awhile back, and I had a working key-file for it already. I've edited the post and added it as a download. It is working for me, let me know if it works for you guys too,

Maybe the developer could be emailed about it? Though it's possible he/she may never get back, but it's probably worth trying...

I looked at the reg key inside the keyfile and tried that with the app. It didn't like it. I think that might be the problem. No idea how CS managed to generate the keyfile from that.

Hi, does someone managed to register V.3.3.1 with these license key files.
I've tried these, and it doesn't work, neither the ones available on Coriolis site :/
Says "Bad license key file".
