Default Successful dual boot install: SL & Win 7 Pro - 12-27-2009, 03:20 AM

I used the guide by alcapowned here:
Dual Booting for Dummies - Snow Leopard with NBM 0.8.3rc2 and Windows 7

Some differences:
1> I used the brand spankin' new 0.8.3 Final versions of NBM/NBI
2> Snow Leopard install source was a patched flash drive
3> Windows 7 install source was an external USB DVD-ROM drive

Using a USB DVD-ROM drive, it look a LOOOONG time to generate the bootable stick of Snow Leopard. Also, booting the Windows 7 install takes awhile. I would really recommend having the extra USB stick to make a Windows 7 installer.

Anyway, about four hours later I have a dual-booting Mini10v. No errors, everything works great.
