The HD2 (ATM) can't boot Windows 7.
But if you mean WP7, then no.
No because the HD2 can only hold one OS on its NAND, either WP7 or Android.
However, you can dual boot both OS's under two conditions:
1- It must not be a mango version (e.g nodo) .. because Mango locks up the SD and you can't use it for android. (AFAIK)
2- Android must be on the SD (an SD version).

Isn't there a SD card unlock for Mango ?

No its not possible to run both os off two sd cards

I got dual boot on my hd2 mango running as nand and android off the sd card

There is a storage unlock.cab file which partitions your sd card to whatever size you want to run android off the sd card after you flash mango..

a) Got to the back to future WP7 rom thread.
b) Read.


You just install the cab to unlock card and resize partition and then put your android files on the sdcard and boot android via magldr.

I have clearly stated that you cannot boot Android (NAND) along with WP7, yet you tried to use HyperDroid NAND + WP7?

You need Android on your sd (refer to the SD development forum) and WP7 on NAND.
