    I have a Mac Book Pro w/ a 200GB HDD running Windows 7 x64 and with PPM10 I created an Apple partition on the last 80GB of the drive. When I attempt to install OS X on the apple partition it says the disc needs to be repartitioned w/ diskutil and some GUID thingy.. Anyone know if there is a way around that with PPM10? or do I need to lay down OS X first then win7?

    tia!

    You may need to re-format the Mac partition with the OSX disk instead of Paragon, (you can boot from the OSX disk and use the disk utility to do this) this will add a Mac boot sector (GUID).

    You shouldn't need to reinstall Windows, but installing OSX first, then Windows 7 would work as well.

    Apple doesn't "format" things.. they like to "Erase" them so I erased the partition again with the disk utility and still same error.

    thanks,
