Hi everyone! About me!
Newbie here (be gentle!). I have a macbook already and yesterday purchased a Dell Mini10v (I think this is the model, its got Windows 7, 160gb hard drive and a webcam) for my good lady to use on the train. She loves the Mac OS and asked if it can be installed as well. Over to the geeky boyfriend to find out, and I was somewhat elated to discover it can be!
So, I've spent the best part of today reading/watching forums and websites to understand the process of dual booting (the preferred option, as she also wants Windows as an option; this is how we use our macbook).
So, thats the background, now my question before I head off to buy Lepoard tomorrow from the shops! My Question
Is it possible to create a dual booting system on the min10v with Windows 7 already installed? I was thinking of using Partition Magic to free up, say 100gb of space and allocate this for use on the MAC and then use software such as EasyBCD to create a dual boot menu. This would save me the hardship of re-installing Windows 7 when we already have a fresh install on the box.
Can this be done, or is there a gaping hole in my plan?
Thanks very much everyone - can't wait to do this!!
