    Unhappy Windows 7/OS X Daul Boot iDeneb Partition

    First of all, im a noob at this and i haven't done much like this.
    My Specs are: Gateway NV-53 Laptop, Windows 7, AMD Athlon II Dual Core processor 2.0ghrtz, 3gb DDR2 RAM, 300GB HD, Ati Readon.
    I just used a youtube video to guide me through installing iDeneb 1.3 on a partition of my HD, and it was going good through install, and after it finished, i rebooted, went into single user mode and typed, mount -uw/ and passwd root and var/db/.applesetupdone like the video told me to. After i typed exit, it loaded a bunch of stuff, and seemed to freeze and a cmd screen, where it said it was starting.
    After i let it sit for like an hour, i decide to reboot and try reinstalling. After i installed the Second time, it was good untill it said the install was successful, it restarted(i removed the DVD), and then booted into windows. I went into my BIOS settings, and tried to select the partition to boot into, and it wasnt there. I tried reinstalling several times and with different settings but with no luck. I tried installing with my storage method set to IDE instead, but still no luck(i had to change it back to boot into windows).

    What is my problem?

    Should i use a newer version of iDeneb?

    Thanks for reading, and please help me solve this.

    Default

    you just need to use the boot switch :
    -x32 -v or
    -x32 cpus=1 -v or
    etc...
    either way,the is the winner..

    Default When to type?

    So do i type that during the DVD boot screen, when its about to boot iDeneb?
    anyway i figured out i have to totally reformat my HD if i want to dual boot 7/OS X. I confused that if i reformat the HD, if i can reinstall the Windows 7 from recovory/ or if i need to use the recovery partiton.
