    How do I install Windows 7 on this second partition
    how do I boot to it

    I know on my mac with boot camp I just hit the alt button and I have the choice of which OS to run.




    Thanks[/QUOTE



    You can install the windows 7 to the second partition by booting from the DVD, then selecting Windows 7 on the boot menu after you have successfully installed windows 7 on dual boot.
    Your saying to use your disk (Windows7), well suppose you don't have a disk? I have a Toshiba,and they do not give you a disk. Where would I go from here? How would I get one with spending $$$$ to buy the program?

    That is correct. It was Bob740 post #11. You have to look at the 'Quote' all the way on the top. It is a somewhat strange system.
