    If you are on 2 separate drives, I would just hit F12 on bootup and select the location that I want to boot from. That is how I did it when I was running OS X on an external drive. This tutorial is more for 2 OS's on the same drive.

    FOr the record, you will want Windows on the connected drive and OS X on the external drive. Windows does not work on externals to my knowledge.

    Thanks, do I need to follow any special intructions at all for installing OSX to a seperate (internal) HDD, or is it just like installing any normal OS?
    Is it the iATKOS 10.5.5 that I need yeah?

    I thought the new Windows 7 has a lot of similarities with Vista so it should be recognised.

    Can anyone help me with this issue?



    Edit:

    Now I've tried the chain0 method. Now I see two system boot possibilities when I startup but if I select MacOSX, windows starts to load files and starts to repair boot...

    Normally I need to see the Darwin bootloader screen, but I don't see it.

    Edit2:

    Hi,

    Now everythings worked, i tried with another method than chain0.

    This is what EBCD shows for me -

    Code:
    There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
    Bootloader Timeout: 30 seconds.
    Default OS: Windows 7
    
    Entry #1
    
    Name:  Windows 7
    BCD ID:  {current}
    Drive:  C:\
    Bootloader Path:  \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    Windows Directory:  \Windows
    
    Entry #2
    
    Name:  NST Mac OS X
    BCD ID:  {d1c68886-1346-11de-9e97-8b8bbbc50cd3}
    Drive:  D:\
    Bootloader Path:  \NST\nst_mac.mbr

    I think it's that OSX can't find the right folder path and the right .mbr file because EasyBCD isn't giving the right path. But I obviously can't get in to the HFS+ drive to see where that file is, and even if I could, how do I change which path it looks for in EasyBCD?

    i believe bootloader path should be C:\NST\nst_mac.mbr c:\being your active primary drive which is the first OS that loads if you do nothing. if you look at that os you should see a folder NST.

    Question problem with keyboard

    Hello, I managed to get windows 7 and mac os x leopard working together

    First I intalled mac os x on disk 0 partition 2

    Then I installed windows 7 on disk 0 partition 1

    Then I installed easybcd and added a new appel os x entry, just saved and reboot and it worked!

    Now my problem is that when I start mac os x, it acts just as if I had my finger on the "7" key forever!!

    I can't type anything :-(

    Any clue?

    I have added the ps/2 keyboard support since I have a hp pavilion dv9000 laptop

    Thanks
    Michel

    All you need to do is first , install W7. Then, create a new partition for your osx within W7 , format it as fat32 or ntfs and set to to be "active".

    Then run the osx installation and before you start the install, go to Utilities and "disk utility" , select the partition you created from W7 and format it as Journaled (don't delete it!).

    Then, install as you would normally, selecting this partition as your installation target. (don't forget to customize your OSX installation with the necessary drivers for you system.)

    After installation is complete, you will need to repair your W7 boot loader, cause you probably won't be able to boot W7.
    Insert the W7 installation DVD, at the first installation screen select your language etc, and at the second screen select "repair computer".
    This will bring the W7 boot loader back, so you can boot W7.

    Now you won't be able to load osx!
    So boot in Windows 7, and unhide your hidden 200MB partition:

    1. In disk management, assign a drive letter for your 200MB hidden partition.

    2.Download EasyBCD and add a new boot entry, select MacOS, Generic X86, Add, Save. That's it.

    You can now have dual boot with W7 and OSX

    try going to start menu>computer>*rightclick*manage then storage>disk management(local)> system reserve and thats how you get to it
