I know this is an older laptop by now (purchased in 2009), I am interested in dual booting Win 7 and OS X. I've been a PC user for years and admittedly do not know much about mac, which is a main reason I would like to dual boot. I've been doing my due diligence of Google research and have come across mixed results.
I already have a dual boot ubuntu - win 7 set up and I'm wondering how much more difficult it would be to create this with a mac. As I understand it, I would create a partition for the OS X, install the operating system to that partition, repair the bootloader, then scour the web for kexts (drivers) to try and get all my externally connected hardware to work on the mac operating system.
I'm hoping I have the general gist of this and I'm looking forward to taking on this project. I know hardware compatibility is a big issue but I've seen people running (snow leopard?) on HP HDX 16. Anyway, I would appreciate if a more experienced user could verify that I'm on the right track before I decide to begin this endeavor.
