  1. Does installing this Kext allow you to boot retail snow leopard 10.6.7 with bios set to AHCI mode disabled? I replaced the default appeintelPIIXATA kext however i just get still waiting on root device...over and over again. However when i switch the bios to AHCI mode, it will load with no problems. I have a gigabit ga-ep35-ds3p Mobo. I am dual booting windows xp, which i why i want to keep the the ACHI disabled? I know snow leopard can boot with ACHI disabled and IDE mode, because hazard 10.6.6i has no issues at all booting. do i need a updated AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext to stop the waiting on root device or what? EDIT: The answers to my questions above is yes. I used Kext helper this time to install the updated AppleIntelPIIATA Kext and it worked. All works fine with bois set to ACHI disabled and IDE on a gigabit ga-ep35-ds3p.
  2. Im a little confused, just to confirm, because i want to format my drive as follows: GPT/MBR See questions in ()'s 1 BIOS Boot Partition (how do you create this? is there a partition code type called "EF02"?) EDIT: I found a post: Download the magicparted CD. (The Sourceforge downloads page (http://sourceforge.net/projects/gptfdisk/files) 2 EFI System (isnt this created automatically when you format a GPT/GUID hard drive?) 3 MacOsx 4 Ubuntu home ((Partition code 0700?) 5 Ubuntu swap 6 Ubuntu root (Partition code 0700?) 7 Shared data (Partition code 0700?) 8 Windows ((Partition code 0700?) Setting up your partitions like this does not allow XP to see the two MBR/Hybrid partitions at the end. The MBRs have to be in the first 3 i think. some feel free to chime in.

  5. Triple Booting

    hello Im trying to do something similar with two hard drives hard drive 1 will have xp and ubuntu hard drive 2 will have OS X i already had xp installed with a little bit of unpartitioned space left over, so i will use that for ubuntu i currenly use a seperate hard drive to run os x, so basically i just unplug the xp hard drive when i want to use os x. so now i want to use ubuntu's GRUB to triple boot them all. I dont know where to start. should i install ubuntu with or without the 2nd hard drive in? Please tell me the steps for this to work with the least risk!! I dont want to mess up xp or os x at all.
