Windows 7 & OS X 10.5, single hard drive success!


New Member
I just wanted to post a positive result with EasyBCD 2.0 Beta v82. The quick version is this:

1) Using OS X make 4 partitions formated to Fat 32
2) Format partition 2 OS X Journaled and install OS X
3) Install Windows 7 formatting partition 1 NTFS in the process.
4) Install BCDEdit and add an OS X mbr entry and reboot.

Doing it this way avoids the Windows 7 100 MB recovery partition and the 200MB EFI OS X partition. This is what my bootloader looks like:

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.
Default: Windows 7
Timeout: 120 seconds.
Boot Drive: C:\
Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Entry #2
Name: NST Mac OS X
BCD ID: {02e59bdb-24f5-11df-b321-9129e47ca10f}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\nst_mac.mbr
Congratulations on your dual-boot and thanks for sharing your feedback, designlord :smile:
