    Hi people!

    I've browsed and searched the forums to find a sollution for my problem, but was unsucessful. Sorry if this question has allready been asked.

    I've finally managed to install Windows 7 on my MacPro 1,1. I have two hard drives: One with leopard installed and another with WinXP and Win 7 on seperate partitons. The Win 7 installation went smoothly as far as I can tell, but now I'm unable to boot into Win 7 without the install dvd. It simply won't show up, I can only choose between Leopard and WnnXP.

    Any ideas? :)

    Ok, I found the (really simple) answer by myself. :)

    I expected to get 3 options after pressing alt on startup. You only get Leopard and Windows. When choosing Windows the boot manager lets you choose between 7 and xp. ;-)
