    Default triple boot osx or ideneb, windows vista, and windows 7

    ok, so a while ago, I installed windows vista and then installed ideneb v1.3, so I have version 10.5.5 Whenever I turn on the computer it will automatically go into mac os if I don't press a button. If I do press a button it gives me the choice of which partition I want to load.
    Ok, so now my question is, how do I install windows 7 on another partition without anything messing up? Can I just go ahead and install it?

    You probably can go ahead and install and then let it tell you that stuff about creating a partition and do that, I don't know though.

    From what I've read about 7 you have to upgrade from a Vista install, is this the type of copy you have or is your for doing a fresh install?

    I'd get a 3rd party program for creating partitions before I'd let the install disk create a partition for me. Chances are though, it might not see the OSX install if it can't read the format of the partition. Again, I don't know for sure cause I haven't tried that myself.

    There is some program out there that'll let you pick which partition to start up on but the name of it slips my mind. Why not just hit the key that allows you to pick the OS that you want to boot into every time you start your machine? That's basically what that program will do and you can do it without all the extra stuff, right?

    Sorry my reply wasn't really worth crap but I guess it's better than 50 some views and no reply at all.
