    This is one of the best posts I've ever seen on this site; not only wonderfully useful, but wonderfully well-written. Thanks. However, it had a counterintuitive result: I'm going to stop trying to get SL to work now. I'm going to assume that you've achieved pretty much the current pinnacle of SL usefulness on the BX2, and it sounds like more headache than it's worth right now. But you have seriously saved me god knows how long coming to that conclusion. Only wish I would have read this before investing the 20 hours or so I've put in so far. Anyway, maybe you can help with one other thing: I want that 10.5.8 rocksteady install you describe. I have a Kalyway 10.5.2 install that I brought up to 10.5.5 and I cannot get the gd thing to boot 10.5.8. Do you have a pointer to something that would get me to where you were? Thanks again for the post.
  2. Thanks a million for this post; I knew there had to be a simple way to get this done! However, I'm not quite out of the woods yet. I installed Windows/OS X/Linux, in that order. Linux installed grub, which apparently did something weird to the Darwin bootloader. Grub right now is set to boot: Linux: hda0,2 Windows: hda0,0 OS X: hda0,1 When you select OS X from Grub's menu, it then boots into the Darwin bootloader, which in turn gives me the option of booting OS X or Windows. The result of all of this is that when I follow the instructions you posted, I *do* get the option in Fusion to boot from Boot Camp Partition (yay!) but when I actually try to do so I get this: ---- GRUB Loading stage1.5 GRUB loading, please wait... Error 17 ---- I take it that VMware is trying to boot grub, which sees the filesystem as some kind of weird VMware virtual thing and gets confused, and pukes with an error 17. My question, therefore: do you know how to fix this? I will happily lose the ability to boot into linux and reinstall the darwin bootloader on MBR if only I could figure out how... Help is much appreciated.
