  1. I might as well post my experiences today, following this guide and the other 1400 tutorial on this forum in order to dual-boot Win7 and OSX 10.6.3 onto a Dell Vostro 1310. - Started off by installing Win7 to the first partition, and creating the following partitions on a 250GB drive: > 50GB NTFS for Windows 7 Install > 100GB HFS+ for OSX 10.5.6 Install > 30GB HFS+ for OSX 10.6.3 Disc > 50GB HFS+ for OSX 10.6.3 Install - Installed the iPC 10.5.6 distro onto partition 2 with this config, just so I can get a mac environment to work in. - Used a retail DVD of 10.6.3 to restore an image to partition 3, replaced OSInstall files with these ones. - Used data on partition 3 to install clean 10.6.3 on partition 4 (disabled all printer drivers in order to get installer to finish), deleted two existing kexts you mentioned, installed Chameleon 2 RC4, restarted. - Installed all kexts provided, installed VoodooPS2Controller-0.98-installer.pkg (with touchpad option checked) in order to get laptop stuff working (still no scroll or touch click, but I mostly use an external mouse anyway). - Needed to modify and reinstall Broadcom kext to get wireless working. - Finally, deleted partitions 2 and 3, created a large 130GB NTFS partition for all my Win7 program installs. Ethernet seems to work just fine, along with shutdown and sleep (inc. closing lid). Restart just shuts down laptop. DVD drive worked without reinstalling anything. All in all, great guide, and pretty successful install. tintinV, may try your touchpad method if I get some time.
