    So you can guess since first time I will spend pretty long time on it. :p
    I got already 3 images on my laptop of OS X for intel/pc.

    Those are them:
    iPC_OSx86_Leopard_10_5_6_Intel_AMD_SSE2_SSE3
    Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_SSE2_SSE3_Intel_AMD_by_Hazard
    SnowLeoDVD.iso (where I got that one from? :\ )

    Anyway, can someone tell me how to do this proper and which ISO is advised?
    So far I know is burn one of these on a DVD which I buy today, then install it on the 2nd partition I got created already for OS X.
    After that I need the Windows 7 DVD to fix my bootloader.
    Then edit in Windows 7 the bootloader using EasyBCD to get the OS X in the list.
    If not, then tell me. :)

    Thanks. :)

    BTW: I might make a guide for further use when I got it done flawless for here. :)

    Hehe, I read a lot of driver problems. Including my wifi (Intel Wifi link 5100).
    So maybe it will be kind of too messy to actually use OS X then for normal use? :p

    Obvious. :)

    Might be not a bad idea to replace my laptop with Macbook, and make dualboot with Windows 7 on that.
    Money is a problem though.

    But if I'm right will a Realtek network card work. (Using a cable mostly at home, and on school wireless where I do need to run programs like Visual Studio so Windows 7. :p)
