how can i dual boot yosemite with windows 7 already installed?

Recommended Posts

Really hope some kind soul can help.

im downloading the DMG of yosemite right now to make my bootable USB so i can dual boot as i used to (mavericks and win 7)

my PC has windows 7 installed already and i dont want to ruin my windows id love to be able to install as dual boot with my windows partition left intact.

 

can i do this by usign the windows disk manager to make a new partition and the nformating it to OSX extended (journalled) as i think if i use the mac usb to partition to GERD i will lose all of my data right?

Step 1) Make a Partition in windows partiton manager. DONT FORMAT IT!
Step 2) Get GParted and put it on an extra CD/DVD or USB

Step 3) Boot GParted and when it opens just wait and use all the defaults.

Step 4) In GParted format your partition in hfs+
Step 5) Go back in windows and put the dmg on the USB (Find a tutorial to do this is TransMac)
Step 6) Reboot your pc and boot your USB.

Step 7) When at the "Choose your disc to install" go to the top, Press Utilities and then Disk Utility

Step 8) Click your partition for OS X and goto the top and press File then Enable Journaling
Step 9) Close Disk Utility and choose your OS X partition
Step 10) Done (Im looking for a boot manager tho like grub.)

    • Niresh, first of all, thank you for your help. I can't disable the NVIDIA GPU, even on the BIOS settings, there is no such option. I have even looked on the manufacturer help fórum, there is nothing in that regard. Is there a way to make these DSDT patches on your release? Could you make a guide or a video of it? I tried looking at some guides on tonymacx86.com, but it's too complicated for me (and also, I don't have a running version of MacOS on my computer). https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-window-server-service-only-ran-for-0-seconds-with-dual-gpu.233092/ https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-dell-inspiron-14-7460-series-7000-uefi-hotpatch.236039/ 
    • And about the SMBIOS, can you tell me about it?  cause, i dont know what is that for. and where can i find that thing? And the /haswell boot-arg, do i have to enter it everytime that i want to boot in Mac OS X? (Also thanks for the help about the graphics again.) (tries again) I tried t install but kernel panic. i ut the haswell boot flag and verbose mode. 
    • hi ive tried the install from this topic https://www.hackintosh.computer/868/hackintosh-sierra-zone-aka-niresh-sierra-guide/   but it failed everytime dont know if my parts are not compatiple or im stupid (and sorry for my bad english) when i try to but the usb stick in my bios Uefi:USB Stick name i get to the screen where i can see 2 disks the hackintosh install disk i think and my hard drive when i try to launch it the apple logo shows up and 5-10 seconds later a white circle https://imgur.com/vpujoR1 and when i try to start the usb stick without the uefi name in bios and click run it gives me this error https://imgur.com/a/M7Ymk   intel core i7 6900k gtx 1080 asus x99 rampage v extreme     can someone help me
