    Default Retail Disk Dual Booting w/ XP Already Installed

    OK so i've completely edited this post as i was able to get a modded Boot 132 Disk to get me into the apple install screen. Problem i'm having is that the Harddrive is already a Windows based MBR. I built a HFS Journaled Leopard Partition but because it is not GUID i cant install. Any way around this? I'm using a Laptop with only 1 Harddrive and dont have the option to use another drive to dual boot. I used diskutil -list and the disk i'm showing has this

    /dev/disk 0

    0: FDisk_partition_scheme
    1: Windows_NTFS
    2: Apple_HFS Leopard

    Can i somehow use a terminal command to make the HFS partition read as a GUID without wiping my drive?
