Hello,

I will be getting some new Harddrives soon and I would like to use the GUID
partition map and have my SATA in ACHI mode, so that I can boot both windows and some other OSes.

Does anyone know how to go about doing this? I heard it is impossible to install Windows 7 on GUID without an EFI motherboard correct me if I am wrong.

I want to learn how to do this now so I am prepared to set up GUID when I go RAID5 this summer with a hardware RAID card.
