  2. boot0: error after partitioning

    i fixed it already. i set the windows partition as active and that solved the problem
  3. boot0: error after partitioning

    Hi guys. So I installed a successful mackintosh with windows 7 dual boot. Howevr, I feel that the partition for the mac os x was too little, so I took away some space from my D: drive and plan to merge it with the macintosh partition later. However, when I boot into the installer and click disk utility, there was no partition tab (it was a lion installer). So, I renamed it with the same name as my original mac partition (thinking that it will auto merge or something (it was stupid i know). Then i realized it was stupid and renamed it another name, and wanted to reboot into my original mac os x and merge it from there (using iPartition). However, when i rebooted, there was a boot0: error. However there was no boot0 testing. It was just a boot0:error, nothing else. I try reinstalling os x, but when i open up disk utility, the original partition was gone. so i installed it in the other partition which i sliced off from the d drive. After reboot, i still cannot get past the boot:0 error. However, i can boot into is x (in which i am posting this from) using the installer thumbdrive (after reaching the darwin screen, i pressed f8 and selected my os x partition). I checked using iPartition, that the original mac os x partition is now just unallocated space. and i can't seem to do anything with it. I tried to use the normal boot0: error fix already, reinstalling the chimera, but it failed. Help please! *os X sorry error in line 6

  5. Hi people, I recently installed OS X Lion on my acer aspire 5750, and it wouldn't boot up. It always fails with acpi_smc_platformplugin timed out.
