Lion installation alongwith Windows 7 using Kakewalk

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I currently have Windows 7 running on my PC.


I wanted to install Mac OSX Lion on it alongside windows 7 (Dual Boot)

So I got a Bootable Lion USB made using Kakewalk 4.1.1


Now I wanted to know, how to install Mac OSX with windows 7, I have a 500GB HDD out of which a 150 GB partition (divided to two 75GB partitions) is allocated as such:


1. 75GB NTFS Windows

2. 75GB Unformatted clean partition.


and the rest 315GB is allocated as NTFS, for some data!


I want to install Mac OSX Lion on this 2nd 75 GB partition, so how do I do that so that I can dual boot with Windows.


(Also, I read this one post for Snow leopard which said to install Mac OSX Snow Leopard in this empty partition, then repair the boot using Windows 7 CD, and add a Mac OSX entry to the bootloader using EasyBCD. Can this same approach be used for Lion)

      I am struggling to install Windows 7 64 bit on a new computer. The storage is M2 and it has 8 GB RAM.
      The system is assembled by a company and not much information about the mobo is available.
      I simply want to install windows 7, preferably only... but I could leave an untouched Mac version on a partition if needed.
      Is this something Clover will be able to help me do?
      I have read many guides but a lot of them talk about dual-booting with macOS.

      Hi there.

      Previously, I installed Mavericks and Mountain Lion with Niresh's Distros and worked well!

      I did shrink like 50gigs of storage for Mac installation, created usb with the help of instruction, changed bios settings, and were ready to rock with dual boot support and every time it worked out without an issue! Though I had my old pc that time. 

      But I guess, from EL Capitan, things got messier a bit. Now I have to erase things and install mac first and then windows for dual boot.
      Also, I bought new pc, so whole bios settings are new to me.

      Conclusion : I need the latest Hackintosh with proper dual boot with my Windows 10, and I don't want to format nor erase anything on my HDD, and don't wanna format my windows 10. my father does work on this pc, me too, so please make sure nothing goes wrong, no file losing stuff please. I don't have other HDD so please I need the help. I want to install the mac on this existing windows machine. I could barely format windows 10 drive 'C' only and after mac, I will install windows again, but make sure except drive: C, no other drives get any effect at all. 

      And also, as I said, my PC is new, telling the specs of this pc, so please mention the bios settings and drivers stuff if possible. Please help me with Bios settings at least if drivers are not possible.

      Motherboard: MSI B250M PRO-VH
      CPU: Core i3 7100 (7th gen)
      RAM: HyperX 8GB DDR4 2400mhz
      HDD: 500GB SATA [GPT Partition]
      GPU: Nvidia 1050 TI 4GB
      Monitor : ASUS VP228 (1920x1080 Resolution)

      Another thing, I have ps2 keyboard, will it be ok? 

      Please help. Thanks.

      Hola de nuevo,
      No consigo arrancar el Windows 10, se me queda colgado en la ventana del icono de Windows.
      Alguien me podria dar algunos consejos a seguir para hacer que el bootloader funcione?
      He estado mirando, buscando, y todo lo que encuentro es para UEFI, en mi caso ( LEGACY), no encuentro nada ni nadie que este en la misma situación.
      Como he escrito anteriormente ( en otro post), no tengo nada de Clover ni de conocimientos, pero aprendo rápido si alguien me puede hechar un cable.
      Muchas gracias por todo.
