I can confirm fdisk440 works great and doesn't destroy the Windows7 data in the MBR.

Great :)

When I first read about the failures with Win 7 + Chameleon's boot0, I thought it was something new since the Vista MBR issue and also assumed that everybody uses the bundled modded fdisk and still gets into the well known trouble. We should encourage everybody to update his MBR using this fdisk440 binary.

Attached an universal binary built for 10.5 (works under 10.6 as well):

fdisk440: Mach-O universal binary with 4 architectures
fdisk440 (for architecture ppc7400):   Mach-O executable ppc
fdisk440 (for architecture ppc64):   Mach-O 64-bit executable ppc64
fdisk440 (for architecture i386):     Mach-O executable i386
fdisk440 (for architecture x86_64):   Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64

This does not work for me under SL 10.6 please see this post;,1929.msg9977.html#msg9977
