Windows 7: Finally!

Finally!

I'm pretty happy right now because after eight agonisingly long hours of failing, i've finally managed to dual boot OSX Leopard and Windows 7. I know it's Leopard and Snow Leopard and Lion are out, I plan to upgrade soon but i'm enjoying it while it's working









Sorry for the bad pics

Thats nice! Does Leopard use GRUB to boot? Did you use EasyBCD to manage the boot process?

I recently managed a dual-boot with Windows 7 and Linux Mint 12......feels good to crack that side of things....

I created a 100GB partition for Leopard and I added a boot record for it before I had installed it so I wouldn't have any trouble booting into Windows after it was installed. After I click Leopard on the Windows boot screen, it takes me to a Chameleon Boot Loader which I can choose what partition to boot from.

Isn't GRUB the Ubuntu bootloader, you're wanting to boot a bootloader from Chameleon bootloader?

Yep, GRUB handles most of the Linux distros.....Chameleon is specific to Mac. It would be nice if GRUB looked nicer.....

You can boot straight into Ubuntu/OSX/Windows from Chameleon. You need OSX initially installed though
