Dual Booting Win 7 and Mac OS X

I just installed mac os x leopard on a seperate partition on my hard drive. Whenever I try to boot OS X, it shows the mac screen with the apple in the middle, but never does boot up. Also, whenever I try to boot up win 7, it says use the system recovery on the installation disk. When I try to do that, it says windows cannot repair this automatically. Any ideas? I can always just reinstall win 7 if I need to. All my files are backed up.

Wow 30 minutes since posting and already a bump, anxious?! I'm no expert but have a bit of experience as I am triple booting with Mac OS X as well. Sounds to me that you may have corrupted your MBR. What steps did you take to set this up, ie, in what order. And what boot manager are you using for the 2 choices?

Hi, I used this article a little while ago to dual boot Vista and XP (With Vista installed first), and it worked like a charm. Article Would this also work with Seven instead of Vista?
