Snow Leopard 10.6.8 On Lenovo G770 i5 Sandy Bridge Laptop


3. Use Chameleon on 1st partition and windows 7 on 2nd (need windows 7 install DVD)


This is too much work – Omit

A. Need to back up the computer (image and files). Down load all drivers and apps for windows 7, extract product key from original windows 7 to register again with the new install.

B. Use external USB Mac OS X to partition the whole disk to MBR, 2 partitions, the sizes are dependent upon your preferences, the 1st one will be Mac OS X, the 2nd will be Windows 7.

C. Install Windows 7 on the 2nd partition first.

When windows finished, we can boot to windows 7 without any problem.

D. Install Mac OS X to the 1st partition MBR (Retail 10.6.3 won’t work) need to use the external USB mac os x to install patched MBR or restore the partition but we need to re-install multibeast 3.8 to boot from Chameleon.

I verified this way by using my 250GB hard drive, so make sure you back up your C drive image fully before trying this, I’m not too sure about the Western Digital 750GB to work, but I believe the way they format and set the MBR partitions that caused the EasyBCD dual boot way NOT working.
