    OK, it's look like you install SL in a logical partition. If you made that partition Primary type then Chameleon could just boot both Windows7 and OSX.

    Go through the process and repair it then. Hopefully you can get SL up and running. Using easyBCD would be very hard to enter those boot options should you need to. Only booting by Chameleon can you do so.

    But try it and see how it goes.

    ok well let me just say thank god for you ratvn so far

    i just thought screw it ill boot with win7 disk and delete the mac partition then boot into windows and start fresh but i deleted it and its still giving me the boot 0: error :S

    how do i get around all this? i was using this: [How to] Setting Your Partition "Active" Using Fdisk in MacOSX - InsanelyMac Forum
    to try and set the mac partition to active but it isnt working and this: How to Install SnowOSX Universal
    is the guide im using to install snowosx.

    Keeping in mind windows 7 is already installed on another partition from the same drive. Would I be better off installing to a 16gb thumbdrive so i can partition it to GUID. The only thing stopping me from doing that right now is that would destroy my windows 7 partition

    Those won't work, as you've experienced it, because the active portion is not the issue. When SL finishes the installation, it will set the partition active for you.

    The first part of the guide, 1st step: Make the partition PRIMARY. That is what require for Chameleon to boot. And Windows7 do not like any other os but itself to be on the hdd, would make it very hard for you to create OSX partition as primary type. It instead would make a logical one so you can install os but can't boot (Linux's have to go around that and modified its bootloader accordingly to be installed with windows).

    So just repair windows if you like for now. There command lines instructions are over the dual booting section.

    Alternatively, you can also install to your USB for testing/try out. It would be the same steps, only select the destination disk USB, and yes you can format THAT USB as GUID/GPT, NOT your windows hdd so there is no harm.

    After installation then your first boot device in BIOS would be external hdd/USB. Beside running slower than internal hdd, OSX is usable in many cases.

    So try it out. You're only installing OSX to ext. USB so don't touch anything internal as format/partition concerned and you'll be ok.

    I will be off line shortly, so try it out.

    EDIT: You don't have to repair windows for now. Just install OSX to USB and you can use Chameleon to boot your windows. The SnowOSX could have that option as well. When you boot that DVD, press F8 to enter boot option, if you see the list of available volumes/partitions then check if there is a volume named System Reserved, select that and it should take you back to windows.

    Good luck.

    ok sorry i just read that then but ive got it done sort of so far.
    Here are my current standing problems:

    I have to boot by pressing F8 at darwin loader (sometimes i get boot error and just restart) and i have to type the flags you previously mentioned every time i go into it.The screen resolution is a bit crappy but thats ok. USB doesnt work and wireless/ethernet dont work.

    My main concern now are having to type those flags in when i boot to os x and the wireless not working.

    from here: iwidarwin - Project Hosting on Google Code I got the closest to my wireless driver as I could find and had to drag it into users/mick/desktop with MacDrive to access it (lack of usb ) but it didnt work as I couldn t drag anything into system/library/extensions it just came up with a greyed X when i tried to drag it there.

    I believe you're getting Kernel Panic because of hardware incomparability with the bootloader (EP45UD3P Snow Leopard) or you didn't set your bios correctly (I'll assume you did). In order for your system to load MacOS your Bootloader need to be compatible with your system configuration, otherwise it won't load the OS. You can either double check your settings and try again, or find a new bootloader compatible with your system configuration.

    I hope this can help..!

    Congrats on your hard work
    Well done!

    Could you update me with the steps you've done.
    Did you make the partition primary?
    Is the boot loader from hdd or DVD?
    Did you install OSX in int. hdd or USB?
    Did chameleon take you back to windows without using BCD?

    Good job

    Thanks but most of it was yours

    I didn't make the partition primary. After I got the boot error I repaired the win7 partition and used that to add the mac entry throgh bcd. The bootloader and osx are both from the hdd and I'm guessing it's to do with chameleon. If I don't press anything at the darwin thing when I boot it goes to mac and I get an error because I haven't put those flags in.

    It's your hard work and determination
    as I only gave a few suggestions though.

    Now you've got it running, so it's clean up time.

    1. USB may need some kext/fixes to work.

    2. For temporary resolution, you can use boot option until finding kext for your ATI 3650. Go to netkas.org, to ATI section and search for the model.
    Add in this to boot:

    "Graphics Mode"="1000x800x32"

    That is with the quote and replace the first two numbers with your native resolution.

    3. For network, look under System Profiler under Utility for your device model/ID numbers to find kexts for them.
    For kext/driver go to kexts.com to download, also get Kext Helper b7 or OSX86 Tools for kext installer (drag in the folder won't work in many cases). If not then a cheap USB wifi will do as for myself.

    4. Now it may be the time you'll need to create a DSDT file to have better hardware support for your system, and you need to choose the correct utility for that.

    5. Try to minize boot options, particularly the -x, for safe mode (what are your boot options now). The rest of the boot options can be enter in Boot.plist so you don't have to type it every time.
