Windows 7: OSX and Windows 7 Dual Boot

I tried that too - having the OSX on a different disk.
Got the same error too. Solution for me was to partition the Windows OS disk and install the OSX on the same physical drive. The OSX bootloader didn't like being on a secondary disk.

Either way - in order to fix that, you DO NEED to run the EasyBCD 2.0 (Beta build 76).
- The chain boot loader it provides works.
- That version also contains the FIX for HFS+ problems - which probably also cause your problems.

my solution is on page 6 - called: SOLVED! DualBoot Windows 7 + OSX

I think everyone who has done this has made the point clear.

"We don't care". Apple wants to charge outrageous prices for their hardware, fine. They can do that while I run OS X on my HP Laptop.

People just love arguing with me when I wake up.

Pystar may have lost but that doesn't mean anything. Also, correct me if I am wrong (I tend to be), but doesn't a EULA that states you may ONLY use something on THEIR hardware break some laws here in the USA?

absolutely and without doubt. apple has created a monopoly for their products. if microsoft did the same thing they would be back in anti trust court within minutes, but since apple holds a small percentage of the market share no one bothers to debate this issue. that is precisely why i don't buy apple's products, i don't like the way they do business.

Yes, that or the EU would be up their rears like they have been. Oh well, one day someone will bite Apple in the rear and make them change a few things.

Until that day, I'll still be making my HP a 'Hackintosh'.

i admit if apple decided tomorrow that they would start allowing other manufacturers and home buyers to use their software on their own choice of hardware i would have a mac, as it stands now though i'll just hold a grudge against them
