I guess I could :(
Is your 10gb partition logical?
Some people use 'dd' method from under linux but I guess you would need to apply lots of patches so it runs somewhat good...
My best choice is to use DVD if u have dvd writer it's especcially easy!
-So u need to download dvd image from Bay burn it and install...
-If u don't have dvd than download dvd image and use "VMWare to Native" Type of installation!

Yes my 10 gig drive is logical, i guess i will try from linux soon if i can't get windows to work.

VMware to native eh? I would do that but the dvd image takes forever to download! I have tried like 3 times, but i guess a 4th wouldn't hurt. (i prefer demon to bay)

from my experience, native osx doesn't work well with logical partitions, you'll have to remove the logical partition and make it primary, use diskpart to convert your partition to id=af, boot the mac installer dvd, go into system untilities and convert the partition to journaled, install mac with the proper customizations, and keep your fingers crossed after :P

Sorry I messed up Logical with Primary :)
Do you run image from DaemonTools or VMWare?
It works only from Demon Tools!
There's tutorial that I used:

You don't even have to listen to guy and u can skip all PartitionMagic steps(to boot Windo$eXP press F8after BIOS before the Loading Darwin...sign). Also don't bother yourself to format it right now you can do it in installer! =)

The main native install guide on the forums says in no uncertain terms to use a logical partition, and not a primary. I dont know if it would even work at all in logical, which confuses me.
