Andy: Can you pls. advise how I can dual boot with win7 and mac osx

The way I always do it is to install windows and OS X onto seperate drives. I leave the drive with windows on as the selected boot drive in the bios and then use EasyBCD 2 from within windows to create a Mac OS X boot entry in the windows bootloader.

You can install them onto separate partitions on the same drive if you really want to - you just have to be a little more careful.
Tony wrote a Guide for dual boot using one drive, two partitions. See my signature block for the link.

BTW, even though I installed Ubuntu on a separate drive, I install Grub in the same partition as Ubuntu rather than let the std install location in the bootloader. Chameleon see it just fine. I found out about this technique in a thread here.


Guys I have the same exact hardware as you almost and I was able to install Chameleon efi partition and two OSX partitions, and Ubuntu Partition including swap partition on the same drive. First thing you do is setup a GUID partition system on the drive, and install OSX and then Chameleon or Chimera bootloader, then use a partition tool like gparted to delete on of your mac partitions and create your ext3 partitions. Then install Ubuntu to that ext3 partition and direct it to install Grub onto that partition. Then Chameleon should be aware of the Linux partition and load up Grub when you want. Only thing is that I was only able to pull this off with Ubuntu 10 and not Debian as Debian wasn't as user friendly in the installation routine but shouldn't be impossible. Other side note was that I have Windows 7 on another drive with Paragon Partition manager which stops working in the presence of a multiboot multipartition GUID Linux hybrid drive...

On my first boot, before MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.7 install

DVD Drive works :headbang:
Bluetooth works :headbang:
Intel network works :headbang:
Sound is detected but with my headphone the result is very bad for now

On my PC, i've got 8Gb of RAM but MacOS for now detect only 4Gb 1333 MHz DDR3 and 3,41 GHz Intel Core i7

It's magic ?!

Ok, i just finished the install with your guide

My screen turn off on the boot of Mac OS X :(
I use GraphicsEnabler=No result, my mouse doesn't move ?!
I use GraphicsEnabler=Yes it's work
But Geekbench and DVDPlayer hangs :(
widgets with 3D effect works great :)

No Bluetooth, it's about windows i think

In system, only 4Gb of RAM instead 8Gb

In your guide, you don't install bootloader, i install Chimera of MultiBeast 3.7.1

Hey TooSixy!

What BIOS options do you have set? As I can't get sleep working (I'll try your DSDT and method in a bit, look my sig for my guide ;) ).

I have all the C-states enabled, and PLL Disabled and the PCIE wake Enabled. OR are you just stock? You can hit F12 on our boards with a thumbdrive inserted, and it'll save a screenshot of the UEFI BIOS. It'd be awesome to compare our tweaks!

As we should definetly get a solid set of instructions made for this board, we aparently both had the same idea of a PDF guide on the same day :lol:

Also I tried your guide twice and I'm unable to use the mouse on boot without iBoot. The OS loads to desktop but no user input is accepted.

Odd. Never encountered that before.
