first of all i have a MBP 1.1 with my DVDReader BROKEN! so i just can use a USB memory
i'm kinda out of ideas.. for today.
0k here's the thing.. a year ago (maybe more) i've installed openSolaris like this http://bit.ly/50uAG
now i try to install windowXP but fails to install with a bluescreen of death but then i realise that of course windows can't beacouse the partitions..
i use to have a 70Gi for MacOSX and 22Gi for openSolaris.. and my bro without knowing says i found another partition of 200M or so .. is "new" now and FAT
and i look and found that was EFI partition (i think!, not sure)
well DiskUtility (even commandline) and others App can't do nothing about it! i mean the only thing i can do was format..
i've start to get help on internet.. everywehere and the only thing i could do was that get some things work.. like diskUtility now can erase the second partition.. but fail to create a new one.. then did it but this is what i had right now.. i've fix some problems with gdisk and fdisk, could make boot ANY rescue distro but fail in boot in the second step.. i mean BOOT
weird things happend in my partition table but i don't know anymore
i fix the NO GPT partition table present and that now this is what i got
*** Report for internal hard disk ***Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 47375591 Mac OS X HFS+ 2 47637736 48047335 EFI System (FAT) 3 48309480 195109383 Mac OS X HFS+Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 39 ee EFI Protective 2 * 40 47375591 af Mac OS X HFS+ 3 47637736 48047335 ef EFI System (FAT) 4 48309480 195109383 af Mac OS X HFS+MBR contents: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootablePartition at LBA 40: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 1, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 2, type af Mac OS X HFS+, activePartition at LBA 47637736: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 2, type EFI System (FAT) Listed in MBR as partition 3, type ef EFI System (FAT)Partition at LBA 48309480: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 3, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 4, type af Mac OS X HFS+
after i "fix" not complety! i use diskutil just beacuse i what to that utility make the partition table for it self and.. now i have a 2nd EFI..
and.. before i forget i that moment i was trying to make GPT "NOT" hybrid to could sucefull install win
somebody can't help me??
btw: when rEFIt appears on boot and choose the USB to boot winXP or Gparted-live or whatever says something like booting "Linux e.g" from HD < ???
