it does work and since there needs to be "proof" of it being done, then give me proof of it not working. there are people who actually did this RIGHT and got it working.

Default Anyone With an Image or Clone of Their Win 7/Snow Leopard Dual Boot

I posted this elsewhere, but this thread seems to be much more active.

````````````````````````````````
I love my mini 9 and need Windows for a number of things, but I'm finally breaking down and getting a Mac also. I'd like to have a dual boot Win 7/Snow Leopard for my Mini 9, but reading through this and other posts, it sounds like its out of my league.

If anyone has a Norton Ghost image of a Win 7/Snow Leopard drive that they could share (or other solution like I send you an SSD that you clone your drive onto) I would be hugely grateful.

Win 7/Snow Leopard sounds great, I'd love to use it.

I followed this tutorial and it didn't work first time for me. I found 4 partitions showing in fdisk so I had to swap "f 2" for "f 3" but that gave a flashing cursor on boot so I had to reinstall chameleon like artic7urtle said Easiest Windows 7/Snow Leopard Dual Boot, with Chameleon

I used NetbookInstaller and hence chameleon from Modified NetbookInstaller 20100616212351 for Dell's Inspiron Mini 1010

And I'm running BIOS A06 without a problem.

Dell Mini 10v Mac OS 10.6.7 and Windows 7 Starter.

Don't upgrade to 10.6.8 and don't install latest iTunes which requires it. Use iTunes 10.6.3 instead.
