The way I did it -> OSX first, Win7 second, with EASYBCD to manage the boot process.
It was pretty straight forward. Once/if you have OSX already installed, I would:
1. use OSX to create a new partition (FAT) - should be >10Gb (OSX DiskUtility was more user-friendly for me; couldn't get Windows to figure out what a GUID is ... dumb)
2. then install Win7 and let it erase the new partition, reformat with NTFS and then install itself
3. (optional): find EasyBCD 2.0 beta on the web and use it to manage the dual-boot
(NOTE: if not using EasyBCD, you can just use Darwin, but I don't find it as "pretty").
Anyway, this worked for me .... but I cannot guarentee, given differing opinions and hardware/software setups, that this will work for you. Just be careful not to screw up your original partition with OSX on it. Duh!!
