    Question windows won't let dual boot?

    question, i installed SL on my hp laptop to the first hard drive. i am now trying to install windows 7 to the second hard drive but windows 7 is saying "windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT parition style. Windows cannot be installed to this disc. this computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. ensure the disk's contoller is enabled in the bios menu?"
    can i not do a dual boot on this laptop

    Just partition a space for Windows using Disk Utility, format FAT. Then boot with Windows disc reformat the FAT partition and install like usual.
