OS X Dual Boot Installation Preparation on Single Drive

First of all, sorry for the long wait. Have to give all my time to many other things. Enough of bla bla bla...

Requirements:
1- Working Laptop, Windows 7 installed.
2- Official Apple Mac OS X 10.6.3 Retail DVD (USB)
3- AND ALL OTHER THINGS THAT PART 1 listed :)

Uploaded video only includes the part that done in the Windows 7.


Steps:
1- Boot up your Computer/Laptop (or your lovely Sony Vaio VPC-EB1S1E/bj)
2- Follow the video :)
3- Continue on the main guide line part 1. Plug in your usb or CD/DVD for bootloader, and also OS X install disk.
4- Use the app. 'Disk Utility' to format (erase) the newly sized partition as Mac OS Extended (Jornualed). (If you do exactly as the guide video, your selected partition will be 50 gb.)
5- Install OS X on the newly erased partition.
6- Follow steps on the main guideline.

Present :)

To all Hackintosh'ers :)

Yesterday was my birthday (31-8), I did not receive many presents and that made me sad. But still I am going to give you a present :). Upon receiving to many request for the dual boot installation, I accept to do a new short video for dual boot installation. This video and guide will only include hdd(ssd) preparation before actual Mac OS X installation and the beginning of the installation up to diskutility section. Once you complete the guide, you will actually continue steps from main guide part 1.

To shortly brief;
Guided method used for dual boot is the method that commonly used in the hackintosh community. Since your computers already have installation of Windows, your computers selected partition table mapping will be MBR (Master Boot Record) and there is no need of changing that for SL (Snow Leopard). Video will guide you with steps as before.

Video status: %100 ready. (updated)
Guide status: %80 ready. (updated)

will update probably today, video will be very very short and it will just include guides and the part that handled in windows for dual booting and the rest will be continued on main guideline...
