I have a slow internet connection. It may take around 24 hrs to download the file. What say should i install it? i like Mac os. Can you also tell me how did you manage to dual boot it with Windows7 ? Did you have to do any thing out of the world?
When you say pictures do you mean of the laptop running it or just a screenshot from within showing the 'about mac' and other things?

If you have windows 7 installed already, shrink it down about 30gb (at least) and then make that empty 30gb space into a Fat32 or exFAT partition.

During the install of iDeneb you'll need to go to the top bar (while running from disc) and click utilities or something, that will get you to 'disc utility'.

When in that, click on that 30gb partition and 'erase disk' to a HFS+ (Journaled)
i know the method of going thru disk utility and then formatting the partition to hfs+ journaled. my question is, once the installation of ideneb is finished, do you need to do something to dual boot or it already works fine? does win 7 shows up in that chameleon boot loader?

I mean just general screenshots of the os, like the desktop, dock and such things.

I'm currently booted into Windows but I'll pop onto OS X in a sec to grab the screenie.

Do NOT use anything but iDenebs Default Bootloader, Chameleon at the moment eats Windows 7's MBR and its unrepairable.

Chameleon team is currently looking into it.

Whatever floats your boat, feel free to PM me if you run into problems.

I need to make a backup (full copy) of my OS X Leopard install before I attempt a Snow Leopard Install.

So you're saying that OS X and W7 can be dual booted together without much trouble?

I'd love to have a play with SL.

I have heard that SL has much higher performance and stability.

Yes it does, I'm waiting for Chameloen 2 RC4 to come out as they mentioned that MBR devouring should be fixed in RC4 or the final release (should should be after RC4, or will be next instead of RC4).

It still boots into a 32-bit kernel by default even on legit macs.

If the MBR does get messed up will a repair install fix it?

instead of repair install, bootrec /fixboot, bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /rebuildbcd can fix it.
