Dual boot XP/OSX on 2 physical disks

15 July 2008 - 10:46 PM

I have OSX kalyway 10.5.2 on one disk and XP32PRO on another disk (not partitions, separate physical disks.).

I have searched everywhere and can't find a practical guide to dual booting with this configuration. I don't care if I use windows bootloader or darwin, I just want to be able to dual boot. right now, I have to go into BIOS and set either physical disk as primary boot drive to switch OS's, it's a pain.

any tips or links on the subject would be of great help.

Dual Boot OS X / XP on 2 separate HDs

23 March 2008 - 10:41 PM

I have a disk with kalyway leopard and another separate, physical disk with XP on it. Right now, with both disks plugged in Darwin goes straight to OSX, if I unplug the OSX disk, windows does it's thing. How do I get darwin to recognize the XP disk and allow for an option to boot to it? If this is not possible, should I be using chain0 method? I just wanted to check before I went through with chain0 in case it was as easy as adding an entry to boot.plist or something.

Areca ARC-1210 RAID Controller on Kalyway?

18 March 2008 - 12:04 PM

I have a Kalyway installation running great right now and want to get a hardware RAID controller card to host 4 disks in RAID0. Is there any reason the Areca ARC-1210 SATA RAID card (PCI Express x8) wouldn't work on the kalyway install? they supply drivers for the mac pro so I am assuming these should work.
thanks for any advice.
