Default Setting up a dual boot - 01-03-2009, 04:48 PM

Hey folks. I picked up a White Mini 9 w//2gigs of memory, and a 16 gig SSD. It came with OSX on it, but I've never used a mac. I Formatted the SSD, and installed Win XP so I could use it for work. I'd like to set up a Dual Boot setup with XP, and OSX.Other than getting another SSD, installing OSX and then changing out SSD's, what would be the easiest route to go?

Use UnetBooten to make a live USB of somthing like Gparted.

Then parition your drive in to 2, one for mac OSX, and one for Windows.

then simply, during the installs of the OS's, choose the partition for them to be on.

Just a word though, the windows side will not see the mac by default, it will require some 3rd party drivers, that are free.
