Default Dual boot with Windows 7 already installed - 02-11-2010, 09:37 AM

I was just wondering if there is a good guide for installing OS X 10.6 on a mini 10v with windows 7 starter already installed on it. I have just ordered a mini 10v and I'm not sure if dell also sends an OS recovery disk with it (as it doesn't have an optical drive).

All of the guides I have found use two USB drives and install OS X before installing windows. Is it possible to partition the disk in windows and then run the OS X installer, and after updating it to 10.6.2 and loading whatever custom drivers etc. can the original windows 7 partition still be used without a windows install disk (or flash drive)? Thanks
