Just curious, but is this "fix" just with the latest OS X version or something else?

as far as my iMac is concerned it's not been fixed. I have everything up to date.. and still Bootcamp wont let me partition my Hard Drive. So I used terminal to do it, that works but then the windows 7 installation wouldn't let me install to the partition i made for it.. even after reformatting the new partition to NTFS.

Just thinking back a few years. Because this seems to be a size issue with your version of Windows 7, it is possible that the Windows partition has to be the first partition on the HD.

Is your 3TB drive a Fusion drive? I've read of problems with BootCamp on Fusion drives.

At this point if I was doing this with all such problems, I'd try using a separate external hard drive and maybe Boot Camp and Windows would then work properly.

I assume that the Windows installer is legit and not a hack copy that could be goofy, and the partition/formatting is done properly and confirmed.

Often, with all other things being correct, if you experience boot camp troubles it can help to run a time machine backup on the Mac side, erase and install fresh then while you have a fresh install on the Mac side create your boot camp partition and install windows. Then once you have windows installed and running go back to the Mac side and import your backup.

I still say its Windows and the 3TB drive. Nothing to do with Mac, OSX, BootCamp, or partition. Just saying.

Maybe this help doesn't help I don't know, just trying to be helpful

Installing Windows via Boot Camp on a large (2.2 TB or larger) Drive in Lion (10.7) and later
