    Question Easy Way??

    Im going to attempt to dual boot Windows 7 and iDeneb 10.5.5 tonight on a new internal 500GB HDD. I have a Asus G1S right now, here are the specs:

    Intel Core 2 Duo T7500, 2.2 GHz 4MB L2 Cache 800MHz FSB,
    Santa Rosa Intel Mobile 965 PM Express Chipset + ICH8M
    2 GB RAM 667MHz (up to 4GB supported)
    Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, 256 MB onboard, 512 MB Turbo Cache DX 10 Capable HDCP support for DVI port
    160 GB HDD Seagate Momentus 7200.2, 7200 rpm SATA 300 (upgrade from 160 GB 5400rpm)
    15.4 WSXGA+ (1680x1050) ColorShine TFT-LCD Asus Splendid Video Intelligent Technology
    8X DVD Super Multi drive with LightScribe
    Intel Integrated HD audio (Azalia), Bluetooth v2.0
    Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 802.11 a/b/g/n

    My main question is: What would be easier to install first, Windows 7 or the iDeneb 10.5.5. I tried the Windows 7 way last night and ended up deleting Windows 7 when I went to partition the drives on the iDeneb side. I want to have Windows 7 be my main booting system. Let me know what you guys think. Also I have seen many install instruction. If you happen to have on that you use, post the link.

    Thanks!!

    I was on my lunch break today and was able to do both installs. Finished with the Mac OS and restarted my computer. The computer restarts everytime when I select the Mac OS to run??!?!? Where would I have gone wrong. I think I need to change it to a GUID instead of the Primary Boot? Is that right?

    OSX could run with either GUID or MBR.
    It could be your custom selection/setup-BIOS during installation.

    So I wipe the Mac portion of the partition and started over. I selected all the right programs as what the Asus Wiki stated. Now when I want to run Mac, I have to have the disc in to bring up the boot menu, then type "rd-disk0s2" (without "") for it to work?? Running EasyBCD would that help fix my problem and be able to run Mac with out the disc?
