Hello!

I have on a Dell Vostro 1700 installed Leopard OS 10.5.8 and windows 7 on the same drive.
I am able to get to the chameleon 2 boot page and I see 3 choices, Mac OS, System Reserve, Windows 7.
Mac OS boots fine, I get an error on System Reserve and BOOTMGR missing on windows 7.

I can acess to the files on the second and third partition from Leopard, I was wondering if I can manually put back the missing bootmrg file?
Or what other thing can I do?

I first installed Leopard, then windows 7.
But Leopard wasn't showing so I put the partition on active and re installed the Chameleon 2.0 Loader from the DVD wich makes me now able to use it. But I can't access Windows 7, from what I understand I can repair it, but that will erase the Chameleon loader right? And I dont know how to manually install it somewhere else.

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried methods described in this guide?
Leopard may give you problems as it was not designed for Intel CPUs and chipsets.
