I have imac (mid 2011) with Lion installed on it with two partitions:
1. 300GB - OS X part
2. 700GB - Files part
(in all 4 - with hidden EFI and lion recovery partition)
Now, I would like to install Win 7 just for gaming purposes (hey, can't work all the time ).
The main question is - is it possible to install win 7 without reformatting my drive?
Boot Camp is out of the game - since it asks for disk to be just one partition.
Now here's what I tought (I have no real experience in messing with boot loaders so please feel free to correct me if I wrote something dumb).
I installed rEFIt on a USB stick, and I added 100GB FAT32 partition at the end of the drive (internal imac disk). Would it be possible just to insert win7 disk at a startup and install it on that partition? Would that render my computer unbootable, or mess up OS X?
Thanks for any help in advance.
