I NEED HELP with dual booting snow leopard and windows 7 restarts before installation


I have a MSI P55-GD55 and 750 i5 processor.
I have been trying to dual boot mac and windows and I made a partition.
I tryed using tonymac's bootloader, EMPIRE EFI, AserBLN, Chameleon bootloaders and they dont do anything for some reason.I have no idea why.
I changed raid to AHCI and selected first boot device to the DVD drive.
And it doessn't even load it is there a special way to burning the bootloader it to a dvd.The only one that worked is the empire EFI but when I swap the discs to the mac os x disc then hit the F5 buttom that it asks me to do and then 5 seconds later it restarts my computer.
I have also used Ipc, Ideneb, Mac os x retail it just restarts my computer as well.

What exactly do I need to do Step-by-step I am a newbie.

please help all do just about anything to get this to work right.

Thank you for your help!!!

For dual booting the snow leopard and window 7 on single system you have to first install the Snow leopard and after that install the window 7. The main work or the climax comes now. You need to follow these steps for achieving the dual boot.

First you have to boot window 7
Then open the browser and open this URL

1.Boot into windows 7
2. Open the browser and then search for the latest version of EasyBCD and download it.
3.Now install the run the EasyBCD on your computer system
4. Now from the main scree of the EasyBCD you have to select the “Add/Remove Entries” option on the left side.
5. After that select the "Mac" tab
6. Then select the "Generic X86 PC" that is available in the drop down menu.
7. That's now you can reboot the system and you will able to run both operating system.
