I've come across some that are pretty confusing and seem to be none too recent. I'd like to dual boot windows 7 and OS X. From what I understand the install is different if you want to do 1 HD for both or 2 HDs, 1 for each OS, with 2 HDs being easier. I'd like to keep it at 1 drive if possible, could anyone point me to a good guide for this?
