  1. Anyone know how to fix the boot 0 error when using GUID instead of MBR?? I have VISTA 64 bit dual booting with H4ck1nt0sh via Kalyway. I used GUID instead of MBR though. W0lf
  2. Thx for a perfect install. Installed 10.5.1 and updated to 10.5.2 with no issues. Now for the fun. Trying to dual boot with VISTA (on the same drive, separate partition). When I boot I get the following options hd(0,1) hd(0,2) Foreign Boot hd(0,3) MAC hd(0,4) Apple HFS I have no clue where the Apple HFS came from; however, when I hit Foreign Boot to try and get into VISTA I don't think it is finding the partition correctly. I get Non-system disk. Is there any way to reset these options so that Foreign Boot finds the correct partition and boots VISTA? Thx in advance. W0lf
  3. I posted earlier about using Parallels to boot my second partition (VISTA) in a bootcamp like configuration. When the VM boots I get the error: Boot from hard drive... b0 error_ A couple of google searches brings up the following article related to the error but for Fedora instead of VISTA 5. After the smooth install process and rebooting I landed on a boot error at startup: saying “b0 error”. Turns out this simply means the newly installed partition hasn’t been marked as bootable. The error reminded me of when the MBR is currupted in Linux and LILO (an older style Linux boot loader) says: “LI” and then fails to boot! Anyway the simple solution to this was to boot OSX in single user mode (feels a bit like linux again) by booting off the install disk. To do this: Select “custom install” and then at the boot prompt type -s Eventually you will arrive in a root shell (no password required? this is dodgy!) Then type: fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (assuming /dev/rdisk0 is the disk you installed on)[/i][/i] Obviously this solution won't work since I am using GUID and not MBR, but the solution to mark the Vista partition as bootable seems like a solution to the problem but a.) this might break something else and b.) I have not clue how to fix this using GUID (sorry I'm a GUID newb). Anyone have ideas??? Below is a copy of diskutil list from my system #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *298.1 Gi disk0 1: EFI 200.0 Mi disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS MAC 200.4 Gi disk0s2 3: Microsoft Basic Data 97.2 Gi disk0s3 W0lfm4n
  4. Great guide. I have been wanting to get dual booting done for a while and this did the trick!!. Two questions though: 1.) Using the latest parallels environment, I get a boot error when I try to start up the VISTA partition. Is this b/c I installed Vista 64 bit or just that Parallels doesn't support guid?? 2.) When I boot my machine and press F8 to select an alternate O/S, I have three entries. The first leads to booting nothing...a dead end. The second is MAC and the 3rd is VISTA as they should be. Is there any way to list out these entries and remove the bogus entry?? Thanks again for the great work and help W0lfm4n
  5. Exact same problem: ECZ 945GZT-M 945GZ Express Chipset&nbsp GEForce 7300GT Any ideas??
