    guys...can anyone help me with this pls...i use windows 7...but after using mac i couldn't resist not installing it...and i did finally install my mac os x snow leopard but...now it does not give me the dual boot option...it just directly boots into mac....to boot into windows 7 i need 2 insert the iboot disc...only then i can boot in windows...otherwise there is no way i can do it...and my friends have had successful installs where it gives them an option to choose which operating system to boot it..!! can someone plss help me with this... i'd really be thankful to anyone who helps me with this...

    If you use Chameleon to boot to OSX directly then it should be able to boot your Win7 as well.

    You've already had it and just don't know how to use it correctly.
    If you like to do it that way, why don't you ask your friends?
    If not then there are plenty of guides that others posted and all you have to do is READ them.

    i truely understand what you mean ratvn...but what i thought was if u dual boot OSX with annother OS...it shoudl give you like a screen where it asks you to choose which OS to enter...this is what i thought it would be like...i didnt know u had to use the iboot cd whenever i needed to log in...from annother OS...and the reason to why i thought i was going wrong was becuse my frieneds also installed it...and the get that screen where it asks them...without loading the iboot cd...i tried askin them how they did that....they jus said the normal installation way get that to you....and i havnt done any different from the normal installation procedure...thank you ravtn for you replies... xD... but i want to know when you installed your OSX did it give you the screen!!?

    Alright.
    If you use Chameleon to boot into OSX, then at Darwin/Chameleon countdown with a blue bar, press any key to stop it (if not press F8), there should be all available boot volume/partition for selection. Your OSX volume should be there, along with 2 other volumes for Win7 (at least). There should be a volume/partition named System Reserved, select that to see if it could boot to your Win7.

    If you can do it this way, there is no need to use other boot utility or easyBCD, as Chameleon is a Graphical UI boot loader with icons for different OS's. There is also no need for Win7 repair disc or iboot CD. But if you like easyBCD, then there are guides for it.

    I don't use ibootCD, not yet anyway. Chameleon boot loader in my main system multiple boot to 9 OS's, 4 Linux's, 2 Windows' and 3 volumes of OSX's, all with graphical UI and selectable icon for OS's.
