    After 2 days both in Day and night, I have installed both Windows 7 and Backtrack 3 and Dual Boot them Successfully!The procedure is as follows:

    Before that, you should get ready for these:
    (1) backtrack 3 livecd
    (2) installed Windows 7 on HDD firstly.
    (3) Always write the error information with your pen and paper, then search the resolution from the internet esp. backtrack-linux.org and their official website.
    (4) knowledge, patience & careful

    1. umount all the ntfs,ext2,ext3,vfat,reiserfs partitions
    umount /dev/hda1,3,5,4,6,7
    2. fdisk d # delete partitions
    fdisk /dev/hda
    d # delete
    7 # delete hda7 partition
    d
    6
    d
    4
    w # save
    init 6 # reboot
    3. fdisk n # create partitions
    fdisk /dev/hda
    n # create a new partition, give start cylinder & end cylinder

    8686
    n
    8687
    9600
    n

    4. make swap partition
    t
    7
    82
    a # define the boot disk for linux
    7 # linux boot partition hda7
    w # save

    5. format
    mke2fs /dev/hda7
    mkswap /dev/hda8
    swapon /dev/hda8
    mkreiserfs /dev/hda6

    6. copy & setup
    mkdir /mnt/backtrack
    mount /dev/hda6 /mnt/backtrack
    mkdir /mnt/backtrack/boot
    mount /dev/hda7 /mnt/backtrack/boot
    cp --preserve -R /{bin,dev,home,pentest,root,boot,usr,etc,lib,opt,sb in,var} /mnt/backtrack
    cd /mnt/backtrack
    mkdir {mnt,proc,sys,tmp}
    chmod 1777 /mnt/backtrack/tmp
    mount --bind /dev /mnt/backtrack/dev
    mount -t proc proc /mnt/backtrack/proc/
    chroot /mnt/backtrack /bin/bash
    7. modify lilo.conf
    nano /etc/lilo.conf
    lba32
    boot=/dev/hda
    prompt
    timeout=60
    change-rules

    11.#only for test grub usage purpose in my environment , which might be useless for you:
    windows 7
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1
    boot

    root (hd0,7)
    kernel /linuz root=/dev/hda7 ro vga=791

    I'm sure we all certainly appreciate all the time and work you put into this post, but this forum no longer supports BT3. I will keep your post here for archival purposes but am closing the thread.
