Need a little help with chain bootting error

#1
First hello every one.

So i been messing around with this a bit to much and have frustrated the f*ck out of myself.
There might already be an answer to my question some were but i am having problems finding it.

Please help me.

I originally started with my windows 7 machine
Then installed Snow leopard on my second sata drive.
I then installed EasyBCD 1.7.2 and it was working great.
I got ahead of my self and installed ubuntu on a partion of my secondary sata drive.
This caused things not to work.
So i formatted my sata 2 drive and just re-installed snow leopard.
When i boot i get the option for Windows 7 or kitten (snow leopard) threw boot loader.
If i select windows 7 it boots fine, but if i select kitten I receive the Chain booting error.
I can press the F8 button and boot directly into my second sata drive (the leopard drive) and that works fine.

I do not have ubuntu on my pc anymore nor do i want it, I just want leopard and 7 to play together.

I have tried uninstalling EasyBCD 1.7.2 and re-installing and probably quite a few other things I am just getting tired and frustrated now....So any suggestions would be great.

Here is what my settings look like in EasyBCD 1.7.2

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader Timeout: 10 seconds.
Default OS: Windows 7

Entry #1

Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #2

Name: Kitten
BCD ID: {df68dbb2-1d65-11d7-8a87-cf8562e63661}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\nst_mac.mbr


Also here is a screen shot of my disk management.

(Disc 0 is an empty drive 1 is windows, 2 is mac, 3 is storage)

Thank you in advance.

Well that didnt work for me.
But i wasnt happy with my Sata configuration, So i played a ton of hot mopping today.
What i decided to do was to partition my first HD into 110/110 windows7/OSx
Now how do i change chameleon so it boots into windows 7 first?

Thanks in advance.

Its layed out so 7 is my first choice if i press an arrow key but it boots into apple

*Edit*

So i have read on this a bunch i have search google...

Every one says...with out much detail

Add the following to your com.apple.Boot.plist :

<key>Default Partition</key>
<string>hd(x,x)</string>

This is from my Diskutil so i know i want 1,1

/dev/disk1
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: FDisk_partition_scheme *250.1 GB disk1
1: Windows_NTFS Windows 7 125.0 GB disk1s1
2: Apple_HFS Mac 125.0 GB disk1s2

This is my apple.com.boot.plist


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>5</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=i386</string>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>y</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>y</string>
</dict>
</plist>


I guess my only question is where do i put this?

<key>Default Partition</key>
<string>hd(1,1)</string>


at the beginning, at the end, do i replace something?

Thank you

Addendum:

Boom got it.

Thanks for your help!
