Then use disc utility on my mac book to format the drive the way that was listed earlier. THEN install windows 7 on my to be hackintosh on the first partition, and then reboot and install OS X with the lifehacker guide. Did I get it right this time?

    Hi,
    Yes, that's it. Just make sure it is MBR type, not GUID. Wins7 won't install to a GUID (GPT) disk.

    Good luck.

    Alright, I got it now. One last thing, after I install Win7, I know alot of guides say to wipe the other partition for mac when the install CD is in and make that partition a GUID. Should I do that?

    Hi,
    That partition is in MBR, so don't make it to GUID (you can't without wipe out the whole hard drive, including data).
    And no partition deletion, just reformat from fat32 to HFS+journaled using Disk Utility in OSX installer.

    Cheers,

    Awesome, I think I got it now. Change Bios. Partition, NTFS for windows, fat32 for mac. Do the partition from my macbook. Pop in the Windows 7 install disk, install. Then reboot on the other partition to load the Mac Snow Leopard. Only snag I have there is:
    1. How do I boot into the other partition?
    2. Should I be using an EFiX chip or just follow the snow leopard guide on lifehacker with the usb flash drive method?

    Also, you mentioned that I can have it run more vanilla after the lifehacker way. How do you do that?

    Thanks a bunch
