The chicken or the egg? XP upgrade to Win7 before OSX? GPT / MBR issues
I want to dual boot OSX with Win7 (via an XP upgrade).
As I have an upgrade copy of Win7 it *requires* that XP is installed prior to allowing the upgrade to Win7.
So far, I have only been able to either:
install OSX (which uses GUID/GPT) and so therefore I cannot install XP, as XP can only use GPT as a data partition and not as a system drive.
install XP and upgrade to Win7; then when I attempt to install OSX it complains that the drive is not GUID/GPT compatible and needs to format the drive to this format before installation.
any advice as to how to get both on? :fail
