I have an ASUS netbook (1001PXD) running Windows 7 Starter and would like to install OS X onto it. I have found the following guide which seems fairly straight forward. However, the only thing I am unsure about is if I can retain my existing Windows 7 installation as I dont want to lose this. Will installing OS X using the above method damage the Windows bootloader?
My HDD is currently partitioned into:
- C Drive with Windows 7 install (NTFS)
- D Drive empty (NTFS). I plan to reformat this to FAT32 so that I can then use Disk Utility to reformat as HFS and install OS X here.
- hidden partition with system recovery.
