    Hey Guys,

    I want to dual boot Window 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3. I went out and brought snow leopard today so I'm all set. I have no idea what to do at all. I have good computer knowledge just i have never done a dual boot before. I have a HP Pavilion dv6 Series Laptop. It has a Intel Core i5 and a Nvidia Geforce 1GB Graphics Card. I have 4GBs of RAM and 640GB HDD. I am running what it came with (Windows 7 32bit) and have recovery disc but no windows 7 discs.

    Can anyone point me to a decent guide how I do it if I can do it.

    You can't run Mac OS X on a 'PC' I do believe talking about installing Mac OS X on non-apple hardware is against the rules.

    You need to set up two partions on your harddrive first, also isn't it allowed if they buy OS X?!

    You have it backwards. Use Chameleon as the bootloader + PC EFI 10. I am installing 10.6.0 right now.
