Yes, this can be possible to install the MSDOS and the Mac OS x one the same hard disk but the different drive but it requires the compatibility of the hardware of the system. sometimes the hardware has to be designed to be just install the single or the multiple OS on the single hard disk. This can be done by just following the step by step process of the system. The formatting of the drive is so easy. The manual formatting has to be already done on the factory site and the user need to done the formatting of the disk. this help to install the particular OS on the system.

There is no such kind of possibility to install the MSDOS and the Mac OS x install on the same hard disk. The Mac OS x cannot gives the facility to install the other OS on the hard disk. Then you need to decide either installs the MSDOS or the Mac OS x. both are very good for the performance point of view. In todayís world the Mac OS x has to be better choice compared with the MSDOS. Then use this OS and it helps you for the installations.
