hutcho, Not sure as to why it is doing that. I just followed the directions I posted above from this thread http://www.insanelym...showtopic=52954 and had XP pro boot up fine. Maybe the steps after step 7 in the above linked thread would help you with the issue you're experiencing.
Ok, just read your comments fully, and i'm following the same steps you made in install with dual boot.
XP 30GB pirmary partition 1
OSX 30GB Primary partition 2
shared FAT32 logical partition 3
XP boots before installing iatkos 10.5.7.
When installing iatkos I follow the steps shown in this thread. and as you said the default boot loader is Chameleon not Darwin so I guess i don't need to continue past step 7 in http://www.insanelym...showtopic=52954
I will let you know how I get on.
Update so far.
I have OSX installed and at the moment I boot both OSX and XP.
I havent yet completed the full install steps detailed on this thread.
-->> i'm here at the moment.
So now that OS X is installed when the Acer 150 reboots you will see the Chameleon boot loader. press any key to enter setup. Once you press any key you then type -s (you should see boot: -s on the bottom left hand side of the screen), now press enter and it should boot you into single user mode.
with you get the command prompt it will look like this:
now type /sbin/fsck -fy and press enter
after it does its thing type: /sbin/mount -uw / and press enter
don't forget that / after -uw or you will not have write access. (also make sure to put the space between the w and the /).Do this exactly to make things easier
Type: cd System/Library and press enter
Type: rm -r Extensions.mkext and press enter
Type: cd Extensions and press enter
Type: rm -r AppleIntelGMA*.* and press enter
Type: rm -r AppleIntelIntergrated*.* press tab and it will fill in the rest for you and press enter
Type: shutdown -r now
This will remove the kext cache and all of the Intel Graphic drivers because they do not work correctly (stuck at 800x600) and the system should now reboot. If all went well you should be at the screen to enter in all of your info and user account =)
