Yes the drive is formatted NTFS. When you are creating partitions for the EFI, SL, and Win7, create one more, format both the Win 7 and the extra partition NTFS.
Install NTFS-3G while you are in SL.
I would do a complete run through, but I have only one 10V, and I have no desire to redo the installation of the 4 partitions.
In short, following the directions of this post, Easiest Windows 7/Snow Leopard Dual Boot, with Chameleon to step 5 then jump to Dual Booting for Dummies - Snow Leopard with NBM 0.8.3rc2 and Windows 7 and begin step 6 to the end.
Personally, I felt that all these guides by itself weren't as helpful. I followed each one by themselves to the letter and failed because lots of times I couldn't understand the directions. Spent 15hrs installing and getting stuck, because the guide was lacking on info on how to proceed. Not to say these people didn't put their good time and effort in helping people when they didn't have to. But now I can do this less than 2hrs. Most of that time is just waiting for the installation.
So if you still can't get it to work. The best way for me to help is if I do it for you. But since you people don't live near me. The next best thing is to contact me and I hold your hand through it. Either by instant messaging or e-mail. pm me if you really are desperate, as some have suggested, you can just carry an sd card to do the transferring. I rarely check the forums anymore since I got what I wanted from here already. But pm me and hope I check to respond to you.
