Hola, You Esteemed GURUs,

Thanks for making MacOSX86 happening after 10 years waiting.
You know the feeling of using PPC603 with VPC to print .ps file in an PC dominated office.


I have the following settings of my Fujitsu-Lifebook S7020, on which WinXPP was installed first, then SUSE10.0. I have been able to switch between XP and SuSE by using GRUB.

Last night, I installed MacOSX (MacOSX_10.4.4DVDPATCHED_Myz) on the S7020.
1. Use SuSE partitioner to shrink an old partition and then create a new.
2. Back to XP, use DISKPART to delete this partition, then DISKPART> create partition primary id=af,
3. bypass the blue screen problem by plug in an earphone into my S-video port (jack port).
4. Use Disk Utility on the installer DVD to erase the partition with MacOS extended journaled format.
5. Install MacOSx86
6. Add MacOSx86 into the boot loader list on SuSE.


But,...... failed to boot into MacOS, nicht funktionieren!!


After choosing MacOSx86 from the GRUB selection list during bootup, I got the following message:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Chainloader (hd0,2)+1
Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format
--------------------------------------------------------------------


Can somebody help out? How to make MacOS bootable?

(better using SuSE YaST2's Boot Loader or of similar kind, cos of my limited knowledge to Linux and Hacintosh and Windows)

Thanks a lot!!

Try to convert your Logical partition of Mac OS in to a Primary one.

I did several set ups of Grub booting schemes, the most of them failed when a extended partition was present. As far as I saw Mac OS does not like extended/logical partitions.

Hola Macgirl,

gracias!
in Linux, dev/sda"x", x=1, 2, 3, 4 are primary partition
i also check with Paragon Partition Manager, it also indicates it's a primary partition.
maybe it's OSX doesn't recognize it. (Diskpart in XPP doesn't recognize it too)
sad.

I use Acronis to set this partition "Active", but it doesn't work.
(in fact, i cannot find my Grub boot selector anymore..... after this operation. I can only set my WinSYS partition active, and boot into XPP. What a mess!)

Chainloader (hd0,2)+1

please try that :

rootnoverify (hd0,2)
chainloader +1

It's mine and works for me

Cordialement

Even that a Mac OS is on a primary partiton when a logical/extended partition is before the Mac partition it could causes problems.

root (hd0,x) x=partition# 0,1, or 2
chainloader +1

put this at the top of your grub.conf or menu.lst file in /boot/grub
to make osx the default partition.

Hi Thanks you all!

I have tried MixUnix's method, but it doesn't work for me.

I also tried MacGirl's suggestion to put my mac before Linux's extended partition (repartition and reinstalll Linux)

At the end, I give up to use GRUB, but instead install Acronis OS selector on my XP.
The magic thing is that it works. Acronis OS selector can locate all three OS and make it bootable without hassel.

maybe snackole's method works, but for the moment I am contented to use my mac for my work. Thans you all again.


wifi and ethernet doesn't work.
bluetooth seems functioning.
can read usb dongle to run mac program and can play dvd.
