    How to edit Darwin Boot Loader

    Edit your XP VIsta Grub bootloader http://insanelymac.blogspot.com/2008/09/ho...-grub-boot.html ___________________________________________________________________ Guide 1 : Adding OSx86 to the Windows XP bootloader. ___________________________________________________________________ Adding OSx86 to the boot loader is an easy task. The instuctions below may seem long but the process is basically adding chain0 to boot.ini and that's it. Whilst grub is more powerful, the extra features are not needed so XP's boot loader will do just fine. 1) Boot Windows XP 2) After Login, Insert the Mac OS X86 DVD and Copy chain0 to the root of the C: drive. You should then have the file C:\chain0. (Chain0 is found on the Mac CD in /user/standalone/i386 but Windows can't read Mac formatted Discs. It seems that this folder is formatted differently so you might find chain0 in the root of the DVD. Copy /user/standalone/i386/chain0 from this. 3) In the explorer window, go to the "tools" menu and select folder options. Under the "View" tab, check "Show hidden files and folders" and deselect "Hide protected operating system files". 4) In the root of the C:\ drive, you should now be able to see boot.ini. Right click this file and click "Properties". In the window that appears, uncheck "Read Only". 5) Double click boot.ini so it opens in notepad (or some other text editor) 6)On the last line of boot.ini, add C:\chain0="OSx86" ___________________________________________________________________ Guide 2 : Adding OSX86 to Vista Boot-loader. ___________________________________________________________________ 1) Boot into Vista. Copy the chain0 file from the Leopard DVD to C: 2) Open the “Command prompt” with “Elevated Admin” privileges from the Start Menu. 3) Type the following into the prompt bcdedit /copy {current} /d “Mac OS X” bcdedit /enum active bcdedit /set {GUID} PATH \chain0 4) In the first command type {current} as it is, literally..nothing else..just {current} with the brackets. In the 3rd command however, replace the {GUID} with the alphanumeric GUID you see in the enumerated list under MAC OS X. You can see this list on your terminal as soon as you type the 2nd command above. 5) Close the Command Prompt and Restart Vista. 6) You Should now be looking at a screen with two options to boot into Mac OSX or Vista. Select Mac OSX to see if you can boot into it. You should see the familiar Darwin boot Loading screen with the timer going down. If you dont do anything, then it counts to zero and again shows the menu screen with Vista and MAC OSX options. Dont panic! Again select MAC OS X, and now as the timer counts down, Press F8. You would see a list of partitions on your disk with their names. Select the partition with MAC OSX installed by using up/down arrows and press ENTER. ___________________________________________________________________ Guide 3 : Adding OSx86 to the GRUB Bootloader. ___________________________________________________________________ To add OSx86 to the GRUB menu do this: 1) Copy the folder "i386" from the OSx cd (which is located at /usr/standalone/i386)and put it in /boot/grub/ The i386 folder is hidden normally so ensure you can see all hidden files in whatever operating system you are currently in. What I did is copied the files over in windows to a flash drive and then copied them from the flash drive to my home space and then used the following command in the terminal: cp -r /home/i386 /boot/grub/i386 2) Go To Applications > System > YaST 3) Go To "System" and select "Boot Loader" 4) Click "Add" 5) Select "Other System (Chainloader)" 6) Type in OSx86 for your Section Name and for Device select browse. 7) Browse to where you saved your i386 folder and select the chain0 file. This means you should have /boot/grub/i386/chain0 in the field where it says device 8) Click OK and you're done. NOTE: If you try editing the menu.list file straight, it will not show OSx as a choice. You must initially use Yast in order to get the option to show in GRUB then if you desire you can edit it manually. .

    Dual Boot Guide OSX & VISTA.

    worked for me DG33FB INTEL BOARD C2D E6750 Processor XFX 8600 Graphic card
  8. This guide is taken from here http://insanelymac.blogspot.com/2008/09/ma...way-iatkos.html http://insanelymac.blogspot.com/2008/09/ma...way-iatkos.html :censored2: This guide is based on Diskpart i which is intergrated with VISTA. Follow this guide and taste the success. Disclaimer. Use this guide at own risk. This guide will show you how to make a Dual Boot 10.5.X OSX86 System with WINDOWS VISTA . Use this guide with your favourite distro { Kalyway | iAtkos | Leo4all | Jas | iDeneb } Personally I found Kalyway and iAtkos more effective than other distro's. 1. First of all you have to install Vista. It's easy and I m sure that you are familiar with it. 2. Partitioning have an vital role so take care of it for installing OSX you need to have a partition of minimum 10 gb. The partition must be formatted as FAT-32 Primary Partition. You can use Partition Magic for partitiong also. 3. Boot into Windows installation and open Command Prompt { Start < All Program < Accessories < Command prompt } With Administrative Privillage and run following commands. 4. In command prompt type DISKPART and press enter. Now you are in DISKPART utility . So here we are using DISKPART for making HFS compatible Partition. Command Preface DISKPART> list disk " This will show you a list of selectable disks. " DISKPART> select disk n [where n = the disk number] This will specify which disk to create a new partition on DISKPART> create partition primary size=n id=af [where n = the size in MB of the partition, For 20 gb space n will be 20000 ] [where af = hfs+ compatible] Will proceed to create a bootable primary partition for the Mac DISKPART> list partition " This command will show you the partitions on your selected disk " DISKPART> select partition n [where n = the newly created OSX partition] This will specify the partition DISKPART> active " This will make your OS X partition the first-boot active partition " DISKPART> Exit Exit from DiskPart........... 5. In Windows Vista you must disable User Account Control [ UAC ]. 6. Put your DVD in rom and restart your computer with the DVD in Drive,now you should see Darwin load screen. 7. As counting starts press F8 key and you will be able to have some more option's. 8. Now type –V and press enter now enterd in VERBOSE mode here you are able to see any error if your screen freezes for more than 15 minutes than note last three lines and google them to find out a solution for your problem. If every thing goes fine after 15-30 minutes installation screen appear's hold your breath we are not quit yet here. 9. On the top a menu bar appears click Utilities . 10. Here select the destination drive where u want to install Mac OSX. 11. Now click on ERASE on right hand side and under the format option select " MAC OSX Journaled Extended " and click Erase. Now the disk will be erased and mounted once this done you are very near to near to your destination. 12. Now close the disk utility and click on the partition which you created at previous Step. 13. Now your disk will be checked for consistency than installaion begins. It will take 30-45 minute's as your hardware. 14. Once the installation finishes . click on restart with the DVD inside in drive.Don't remove the disk. 15. computer restart's don't click anything even you see the boot screen. Yes you done it enjoy………. ___________________________________________________________ Now you have two option's Boot with Darwin Bootloader or use VISTA bootloader. ______________________________________________________ For Darwin bootloader follow these instruction. Darwin has its own dual-boot menu which is easy to activate, just press F8 on your keyboard before the Darwin boot loader prompt and Apple boot logo.The dual-boot menu might appear by itself depending on whether or not the install disc automatically sets the time-out period for you. If you want to create a time-out that will allow you to select which OS to boot from without pressing F8, follow these instructions: Firstly, load up Terminal (Applications/Utilities/) from within OS X, then type: sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist edit the Darwin time-out flag accordingly: <key>Timeout</key> <string>8</string> Press CTRL+O and then Enter to save the file, after which you can safely close the session by pressing CTRL+X. - x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x For VISTA bootloader use this guide .

Command Preface DISKPART> list disk " This will show you a list of selectable disks. " DISKPART> select disk n [where n = the disk number] Select the disk which Windows Vista is installed to DISKPART> list partition This will show you the partitions on your selected disk DISKPART> select partition n [where n = the Windows Vista partition] This will specify the partition DISKPART> active Will make your Windows Vista partition the first-boot active partition DISKPART> Exit Exit from DiskPart........... Reboot into Windows Vista. Next, you can either follow the command line BCDEDIT instructions below, or use EasyBCD. Copy CHAIN0 from your Mac OS X partition or Installation Disc to the root of your Vista partition C:\. - x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x For Vista Bootloader you can also use BCD-EDIT. 1) Boot into Vista.
