    Default Dual boot OS X with Win7

    Is there a way to dual boot OS X 10.6 with a current Windows 7 install, without reformatting my drive? I know how to partition and stuff, so that would'nt be a problem.

    bump this one. I have the same question as this guy. follow up question, i downloaded SL and it is in .dmg format how am I suppose to burn it on a DVD? its 6GB big and I think it won't fit on a 4.7GB DVD. I have a 8GB USB flash drive but the only method i see on the net is by using Disk Utility (from mac) but I don't have a MAC so how am I suppose to boot it from my USB Flash Drive? Looking forward for the responses. Thanks

    No I dont think there is a way without formatting the whole disk.

    You need to burn the DMG onto a dual layer disk,why not try Iatkos 7 s2 its will burn to a 4.7gb dvd.
