Just wanted to make sure as well that if you do OSX first and unplug and do Win7 second you need to put your Bios settings back to OSX specs when you place your boot priority?

Win 7 - 64 bit installs fine with AHCI mode SATA and HPET 64 enabled all enabled from install.

If you install with IDE SATA then you have to do the registry edit.

I have both OS X and Win7 on a single 64GB SSD.

If your doing a fresh install of both OS, first thing you should do is format the ssd into 2 partitions using GUID.

Boot to OS X install disk using iBoot
Partition your SSD using Disk Utility
Format the first partition using Mac OS Extended
Format the second partition using Win FAT

Install Windows 7 first.
Install Mac OS X second using MultiBeast and iBoot.

By installing Win7 first, Chameleon will set Mac OS X as the primary partition to boot from.

I hope this helps :)
