I made a backup of /usr/sbin/fdisk and replaced it with the fdisk that is supplied in the official Chameleon RC4 binary package. This forces NBI to use a fixed fdisk binary that does not overwrite the Windows disk signature. After running NBI 0.83 final with the "Install bootloader" option checked, I can confirm that I am still able to dual-boot with Windows. No need to go through the tedious repair process.

Unless and until meklort updates NBI to include and use the fixed fdisk binary, dual-boot users should consider replacing the stock fdisk with the Chameleon-supplied one so that NBI may be used without worry of breaking dual-boot...
