    Subscribing- I'm hoping to do the same thing. I have Win7 and OS X on two different 1TB sata drives. (long story, but trying to install OS X on the same drive completely hosed my Win 7 HD, by killing the MBR / partition table) At this point, I have to boot to the Mac drive using an iBoot CD. I tried installing MultiBeast in OS X but it would not boot either OS. I swapped the boot disc order in the bios to move the Win drive back to the top of the list and at least that is working ok.

    Theres no problem about this guys, just install each OS in different HD, after installation just choose what HD to boot with
    HP Pavilion Elite m9250f
    Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Asus IPIBL-LB MOD BIOS, Intel Quad Core Q6600, 4GB RAM (800mhz), 2x500GB, nVidia 8600GT (Works), ALC888S (Works), Wireless RT73 (Works), LAN (Works) - How to Install - Blog - Hardware Combos - FAQ by TJ2K7

    I used easy BCD. after installing easybcd. run on windows and follow boot options. it will make a nts file on C:/ with boot O.
    check to see if you have the nts folder, at boot you should see the drives.
    I was never able to install both on the same drive.

    Anyone knows if using easyBCD (like redneck did) will work if I'm trying with this guide:

    How to Install Mac OS X on a PC (Without Using a Mac)

    I can't loose any data from my W7 partition so I'm planning to unplug the W7 HD during MacOSX installation.



    thx!
