format your windows hdd as fat

3. Insert your Windows 7 dvd and boot from it.

4. After it boots go ahead and click on Repair your computer. Select TOOLS etc (not the restore option).

5. Select command prompt and type the following:

a. diskpart (hit enter)
b. Select disk 0 (hit enter) (or the disk number you installing to - it will be 0 if you installing on the same drive as your mac os x)
c. list partition (hit enter) this will show you all the partitions on that disk. Find the one you formatted as FAT. You should guess by the size. Make sure it is the right one and note down the number.
d. Select partition x (where x is the number you noted in step c) (hit enter)
e. active (hit enter)

6. Close the command prompt window and close the tools window. Resume your Windows installation. Make sure you say custom install (advanced) and when it is asking you where you want to install, select your partition (make sure it is the right one) and format it as NTFS. I forget the exact names but something like you click on the partition and say disk options and you say format. NTFS will be the option. I'm pretty sure you will be fine with installing Windows if you can install Mac OS X on your pc.

7. Great Windows 7 is now installed. Reboot - yes you won't have chameleon anymore, because Windows overwrote the boot partition, but hey that's fine don't worry.

8. When you are rebooting in step 7, make sure you put your USB stick with chameleon on it and boot from it. (for Snow Leopard, this could be ##### or whatever cd loader you want to use).

9. Select your Lion install and boot into it.

10. Reinstall chameleon boot loader to your lion partition.

All done! when you reboot, you will see both your Lion and Windows disks and you can boot into either one. Without the need for any loaders. The first time you boot Windows, you might get the error saying Windows did not shut down properly or whatever, make sure you say "START Windows Normally" don't launch any repair options.

How easy was that?

You can install MacDrive on the windows side and Paragon NTFS on your Mac side for access to all drives no matter where you are.

Also if you do not have MacDrive on Windows side, NEVER EVER go to the windows disk management side and try to reformat or manage partitions - that will screw up ALL drives, trust me I know... MacDrive will actually stop you from doing that.

I hope that this helps.

Thanks for reading.

remember to format to FAT from OSX and set the partition table to MBR.

After this follow the quote i sent you.

Onemore thing. Before you boot to the windows dvd, disconnect all your drives except the one you want to install windows to.

ITS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU SET YOUR FAT DISK TO ACTIVE

ok but i don't understand why in 5.c he speak about FAT partition, and in 6. he say format partition for windows as NTFS. confused


or you think that I need to format partition as FAT from osx Lion, install windowson it, and than install chameleon on lion again ?

you need to format from OSX to FAT, the after you make the diskpart commands and reboot. You will need to just format (on windows installer) to proceed with the installation.

After windows is on you need to reinstall chameleon on osx

Hi, false alarm, I just turned my PC on... and the DVD drive is working... I think it was when I used the flag -f that did not work... the last time I remember doing was rebuilding my cache (I am still working on getting my GPU to work at a decent performance)... Do you still need that file? I was not able to find it... Thanks!

UPDATE: I was burning some files, and I got an error (.. cannot be verified..) and now my DVD drive is gone! ;)
In Snow Leopard , it was working fine.

Has anybody that used this Leonize method has done a Cinebench Bechmark? Please let me know how many FPS you are getting. I have followed exact methods as other people with identical GPU cards and my results are are almost 50% of them. I am getting only 17 FPS, while most people with a GTX560Ti are getting like 35... Thanks

run finalize again.

Probably the name of your partition for OSX 10.7 isn't Lion ... but other name...

so... "./finalize /Volume/Name of your destination OSX 10.7",

Fabio


It All Set Now.

Thanks a Lot Fabio
