  1. Hi Folks, First of all a BIG thank you to u all!!! First post in here, Im reading us from a quite while now, amazing work u do. Used to have kalyway versions iatkos and idenevs but this is just LOVELY!! I'm really impressed My question is about loading the mac osx system using Grub bootloader ( no probs with mac installation nor chamaleon for hdd utility). I know it can be done as i used to have it on my system. For some reason i had to reinstall ubuntu and since then i cant load my lovely mac from GRUB, have to do a quickboot from BIOS if I want to, and that's not as good as it used to be!! Anyway, here's my fdisk output: Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders, total 488397168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00000000 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 1 488397167 244198583+ ee GPT /dev/sda2 * 0 0 0 0 Empty Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.

Here my GRUB config: ## ## End Default Options ## title Apple Mac OSx Leopard 10.5.6 root (hd0,0) map (hd0) (hd1) map (hd1) (hd0) chainloader +1 makeactive title Ubuntu Linux Intrepid 8.10 kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=ab8b36da-41fb-4741-9513-5f638203a976 ro quiet splash initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic title Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic (recovery mode) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=ab8b36da-41fb-4741-9513-5f638203a976 ro single initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic As far as i know the chamaleon for hdd creates a fat32 partition flaged as boot, isn't it?? i think i should boot my system using that --> hd0,0 isn't it?? tryied without the map thing and different combinations (removing chainloader & makeactive) but no luck at all. Anyone out there knows what im doing wrong in here?? i would really apreciate some help as im fed up of presseing F8 and to do the quickboot thing to boot my beauty mac. Thanks!!
