    Default Installed three different distros but can't understand how to boot!

    I have tried to install a number of the distros, dual booting with Windows 7:
    Kalaway
    iDeneb
    iAtkos

    The same thing is happening for me every time. Everything installs fine, but then when the computer reboots it just goes straight to windows.(If I take out the disk) That's it. I don't understand what all this talk about Darwin is, when I am done installing I am not seeing any option to use it to boot the OSX partition. When I leave the disk in after installation I simply only get the option to boot the disk again. Nothing to boot OSX. I have had a friend try and help me and he also cannot figure it out. I have installed time and time again, and the more guides I read the more confused I become. Currently I have iDeneb installed on one of my partitions... Please help!

    I won't claim to be a Hackintosh expert, but I did get dual boot working- OSX 10.6.1 and Win7. I ran into the same problem you had, whatever I installed last became the only OS on my system. I believe I solved the problem when I moved my system to 2 physical hard drives instead of just 1 drive with 2 partitions. Now my system boots into Cameleon and then shows my various drives. My only 2 problems is that:

    1. I see 2 Win7 options at boot since it seems Windows wants to make a partition called something like "System Reserved", and it appears in my list of choices.
    2. My clock seems to always be off in Windows (not sure if this is related or not).
