    Hi all,

    Was wondering if there's a way to install Windows first, then installing OS X.

    The reason why I want to do this is because I bought a Momentus XT, and someone told me that the first partition is the quickest partition. Since I'm using Windows 99% of the time, it would make sense for me to convert my Windows partition to the first partition to experience better speeds.

    Anyone has any advice on how to go about doing this? I'm using Windows XP SP3 and SL 10.6.7

    The whole one partition is faster sounds like ************ to me, but if you want to do it that way, open disk utility from your install disk, partition away then when installing osx choose the second one.
