I think disk4 is the cdrom. What could the problem be? It seemed to work fine

You may ignore it if it working fine. Maybe nothing serious, just a glitch.

It seems you need both, UUID.kext & EFI string:-
http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php?topic=250.0

You can put UUID.kext in "/Extra/Extensions" folder in Boot-132 USB. Remember to fix permissions & update mkext file (using Terminal):-
cd /Volumes/Boot132USB
cd Extra
chown -R root:wheel Extensions/UUID.kext
chmod -R 755 Extensions/UUID.kext
rm -rf Extensions.mkext
kextcache -a i386 -m Extensions.mkext Extensions

I coulnd't manage to create the boot123 USB. Can't see how to restore the image in Disk Utility.
But I installed uuid.kext using osx86tools and that seemed to repair the problem.

I'm waiting to see if the system is stable.

Hi Kizwan, please im sorry for my bad english, i hope you help me with my one GUID disk partitions, i have leopard retal 10.5.8 in the first partition and i want to install xp. Actually i have three visual and one hidden partitions: 1:(hidden), 2:leopard, 3:Fat32(empty), 4:Fat32(empty). My question is: i can install xp in some one 3 or 4 partition in ntfs format during installation? Leaving one partition for Files (I prefer in FAT32 format). I think to use later the chan0 method for boot, what you think? i hope this help to everyone.. Thanks.

How do you manage to restore the Boot-132 USB from post #63? :( I just realize that I have uploaded dmg file with Read/Write mode & I found out it cannot be restored to a flash drive with this mode. I will update post #63 & write a guide on how to convert Boot-132 USB from Read/Write to default mode (compressed). With default mode it can be restored to a flash drive.

You can install XP on partition #4. Simple step-by-step guide:-
1) Boot your PC with Windows Vista DVD.
2) Choose "Repair your computer".
3) Just click next & open command prompt.
4) Enter "diskpart" in the command prompt.
5) If you only have one HDD, enter "select disk 0". OR If you have more than one HDD, enter "list disk" to know which HDD is your GUID disk and then enter select command (if it is second HDD, enter "select disk 1").
6) Enter "list partition".
7) Enter "select partition 4".
8) Enter "active".
9) Exit from diskpart & command prompt. Reboot with windows xp cd to install xp on partition #4.

Before doing above process, make sure you create a bootable Boot-132 CD or USB. Because you will need it to boot your Mac OS X. After windows xp installation, just follow the same process to set back "active" partition to your EFI partition or Mac OS X partition; whichever you use to boot Mac OS X.

Thank you very much! I will try it... So, after boot in leopard active partition, and have to reinstall the bootloader chamaleon - darwin, which will manage the dual boot, right? Thanks so much.

You don't have to reinstall chameleon. After XP installation, you just need to set your EFI partition or Mac OS X partition active; which ever you use to boot Mac OS X; by using Windows Vista DVD.

I just don't remember if the bootloader (chameleon) will be broken or not after XP installation. That is why I want you to create a Boot-132 CD or USB so that you can boot to Mac OS X if that happen. If the bootloader broken, we can fix it without reinstalling it.

I really don't know how I managed to do it but it seemed like I did it :( Anyways, I followed your guide and made the stick again and also tried it and it's booting fine.

I'm going to add it to the EFI partition later.

Thanks for your help, I'll keep you posted.

Referring to your system log file earlier, only this message appear which is normal if you use Disabler.kext or IntelCPUMDisabler.kext:-
kernel[0]: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
But from the picture there is new message:-
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed
I don't know if it contribute to your problem.

There is nothing different between EFI bootloader & Boot-132 CD or USB. The content of the kexts is the same. I will check again.

EDIT: I don't think kexts file for Extra folder is installed to the EFI partition. Did you follow exactly EFI bootloader step-by-step guide at post #63?

To check the Extra folder in EFI partition, boot your Mac OS X using Boot-132 CD or USB and enter this command in Terminal:-
sudo -s
mkdir /Volumes/EFI
mount_hfs /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI
ls -al /Volumes/EFI/Extra/
You should see something like this (please post your output):-

After that enter this command:-
ls -al /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions

thecos,

As I thought, the kexts for ASUS P5Q Deluxe is not installed in the EFI partition. Please post your "install.log" (/var/log/install.log).

So problem is, my OSX isn't disx0s1, it's actually disk5s1

Somehow it cannot find "mount_hfs" command in your Mac OS X. It failed to mount EFI partition. This only for GUID disk only. Are you sure yours is GUID disk? Have you restore any image to your EFI partition? How did you installed the kexts file? Did you run the package from the retail Mac OS X?

If you are using Retail Mac OS X with GUID disk, the EFI partition is always disk0s1. Unless if you have installed the kexts file from another Mac OS X.
