    It looks from your profile that you've sorted your issue... but for anyone else...

    check this page at ihackintosh...

    I had loads of problems installing Mac OS X to my pc. I wanted a dual boot system with windows 7 (which was already installed) and tried 5 different distros... all having different issues.

    Eventually I formatted my HDD so it was totally blank, Installed OS X 1st (worked like a charm), then installed 7 and set up the multi-boot. All is good now
