You'll get a good start by typing "dual boot" in the forum search engine. :(

It's simple: install OSX86 to a partition then install Vista to another. When it's done use a bootloader like Grub to choose your OS.

The EFI issue is caused when trying to dual-boot anything windows onto a true Intel Mac (iMac, Macbook).

as far as a regular intel box, just grub it up
