Hey I'm wanting to reintsall Windows 7 on my hack as I got a blue screen registry error and couldn't figure out how to fix it.

Trying to reinstall it on partition 1 of my second hard drive, where parition 2 is an HFS+ Time Machine partition and its GUID formatted, but when I try to install it gives me an error? I'm thinking this has to do with the how the drive is set up. How do I install it?

from a bit of googling and looking at tony's dual boot guide it looks like you have to install Windows on a partition on a GUID disk without an HFS+ partition being there? so i have to remove my whole Time Machine backup? again :D

ok so it ending up installing after having no HFS volumes visible in the Win 7 installer, so i had to disconnect the OS X disk and delete my Time Machine partition.
