Confused with dual boot windows 7 and Mac OS

Hello guys,
I got to admit I'm really confused with all this multi booting,
so i'm just looking for you all professional advice to help me out.
I got a laptop, Asus u36sd.
It's has one HDD 750 GB that splits to :
1. C: windows 7 boot
2. d:
3. 20 GB unallocated space which I want to reserve for the future (
to install Backtrack 5 linux )

so please , correct me if i'm wrong.
my plan is to shrink drive D, and free at least 80 GB for the MAC OS and
name the volume as E.
then i'm planning to install the the Mac OS mavericks using this
tutorial

UniBeast: Install OS X Mavericks on Any Supported Intel-based PC - tonymacx86.com

but the problem is , i know as soon as i'll finish to install the
Mac OS it will destory my windows 7 boot and i will not be able
to boot into windows 7 anymore.
what is the right orders I need to do for not messing my windows 7.
thanks in advance !

See section 2, H.

I expect that helping with this would be in violation of forum rules.

Thanks for the Heads up I don't use any products from Apple so i wouldn't know there rules but anyway
I hope for his sake he doesn't follow through sounds like it can do more harm then good

I never needed a Dual boot OS and i can't understand what the point of it is when you will be using one OS over the other more anyway

*thank you for the link, but i believe it's not the tutorial i need because i already have windows 7 on my laptop and i just want to add Mac Os plus it's a dual boot between windows vista to windows 7 which is different than Mac OS.
* the point of having a dual boot is to be able to have Mac Os and windows 7 at the same computer.
since air book Mac cost a lot of money, and we live in a tough world i figure i can practice in my laptop
on the mac OS and when i'll have the money i'll buy it . I wish i could use Xcode with my pc , thats the only reason i want the mac OS .

i bought the Mac OS CD, and i'm willing to buy a Mac in the near future.
I don't think it's make me a criminal to do test with my own CD I bought plus when I searched the forum here i saw couple of questions about hackingtosh.
i'm not asking for links or hacking stuff, just for advice how not to mess up my windows boot since i messed it
up in the past with linux.
