Hello Army008, welcome to Seven Forums


It is possible to dual-boot Mac with Windows but it is a violation of the Mac use agreenment to install Mac on non-Mac hardware.

Possible, but high risky. Coz both the OS uses tow different type of formatting.

If you ask me, I would suggest you to not put the Journaled partition in the same HDD in which windows is.

One more point, if you really do it, dont set up a dual boot using Windows boot manager.

Better use BIOS one time boot menu key to choose which HDD to boot up.
