Hi,

I am using Clover as the boot loader for my multi-boot hack (Windows 7 / Mountain Lion). I read that I should install Clover to a boot flash and work out any issues before installing clover to the hard drive. I have one hard drive which, if I do not use the Clover boot loader, boots into the 4th partition (Windows 7, EFI boot). The 1st partition is the EFI one created when I installed Windows. The 2nd partition is the Microsoft reserved partition. The 3rd partition is the HFS+ partition. 

1) My questions are, once I get the boot flash working the way I want, how do I get those settings installed onto the hard drive?

2) Further, where should Clover go on the hard drive?

Thanks,

Bernie

Hi TechManiaco,

I had already looked for the answer in the first document you listed, but did not find anything that pertained to the way my partitions are set up. If you think I may have overlooked something there, let me know. I will check the other two, though.

Thanks!

Bernie

Resolution:

I abandoned my idea of using one hard drive for the multiboot system because of stability concerns. I installed a second hard drive for the Mac OS (drive 0) and copied Clover to the EFI partition there. I set the BIOS to boot from drive 0 before any other hard drive and all is well.

 

Thanks for the assistance!
