    Question Install Snow Leopard AFTER installing W7 (repartition)?

    Hi,

    all tutorials I have seen so far talk about having a clean disk and installing Snow Leopard to that and afterwards install Windows.

    I have an existing Windows installation (W7) and want to dual boot that with Snow Leopard. I have Snow Leopard running smoothly in a VM, but I'd rather have it running natively on my Dell 1400 (I saw people having it installed on that one already). In the VM I don't have Quartz Extreme support, but I definitely want to use iMovie!

    Could someone point me in the direction whether it is possible to install Snow Leopard after installing Windows? I could use GParted to repartition my drive in any way - Windows 7 doesn't really care on what partition it sits as far as I remember.

    Cheers

    Hello moontear,

    Depending on how much space you have left on your current hard drive, you can use Partition Assistant to partition the free space without losing data. I use Partition Assistant all the time and it works great and has a great user interface.
    It isn't freeware but you can pick it up on torrent sites if you want to do it that way.

    Good Luck!
