Not sure but have you set your SATA  to AHCI instead of IDE in your BIOS? 

 

Also, if you change it from IDE to AHCI you may find windows will not boot. This can be fixed by switching back to IDE load windows, then search "install AHCI in windows 7"in google. Easily fixed.

 

Otherwise I have no idea.   ;)

many thanks for your tip.

I went back and made a 20gb partition from my 500gb storage hdd. all installed fine. I then added a boot entry with easeyBCD.

I just need to sort out the audio as I have none. and the graphics as its only a resolution of 1024x768 plus it tends to flash like hell sometimes on the web.

 I think you need to use the OSX install to make the partition.

 

The MBR for your machine is probably the difficultly. If you use the whole drive its easier, otherwise you need to install a proper bootloader setup so your partition can be booted from.

 

Like shown here:

(i think..)

Glad to hear its working! I think the resolution and flashing is graphics kext issue. Not really sure on these but over at insanelymac or similar site you might find advice from someone who has your video card working.

 

Fo instance your card series is listed here::
