Snow Leopard partition as the boot drive

09 September 2009 - 01:56 PM

Good Day,

OK, I completely ditched my windows 7 dual boot situation.

So, only have guid partitions now, no windows, no mbr (want this desktop as a hackintosh only)

Just did a clean install of Kalyway 10.5.2 on SATA drive (for the umpteenth time)

Now I want to install SL onto my other SATA drive, now here are my questions.

- since i just installed Kalyway is there anything i need to install bootloader wise on this partition, or just leave darwin as is?

-once i install SL - do i need to set the Snow Leopard partition as the boot drive? If so, how?

I think the partitioning is where I am getting confused, cuz believe me, i have been running leopard and windows for sometime without issues. But i really want Leopard and snow leopard to work on this box.

I have tried every chameleon version known and after installing SL, it just never shows up for me to select - so i am missing something, somewhere.

Thanks for reading and thanks for any suggestions.

One small step for Mac

Ok I am racking my brain here,

have used the AMD install guide and installed SL to a seperate SATA drive, have leopard and windows 7 on the other SATA drive.

Using mach_kernel.test7

Installed chameleon RC 2 to SL partition as per guide instructions, when i boot up though i don't see the SL drive at all so i can't tell if it is going to boot or not.

When I am in leopard or windows i can see and access the SL drive without issues.

i have done so much reading its now bogged down my brain and i cannot figure out why chameleon is not loading at startup.

Also copied correct boot file to replace chameleon RC 2 boot file.

if anyone has any suggestions it is most certainly appreciated.

if I haven;t provided enough detail let me know - just a little ancy to get this working or at least see if SL will boot.

Thanks in advance
