Sorry for reopening this thread. I just wanted to thank so so much to Mr TheGreatDeceive for pointing out this fantastic solution.
Thanks a trillion man! I decided to give hackintosh a try but wrongly installed Snow Leopard prior to Windows 7.
With your solution I managed to get OSX back along with Windows 7 side by side.
wow, didn't know this is still necessary. I thought Chameleon will take care of all this. Isn't there a windows installation for Chameleon? e.g. here. there are likely newer versions, didn't look hard enough.
good to see it works
