  1. hi again! i got this problem fixed! i changed the queues of the 2 ATA-Busses: XP on disk0 - bootdisk and first master, osx on disk1s1 and first slave, DVD drive as secondary master, DVD burning drive as secondary slave... ... and that's it! i've got dual-booting with no problems! with that mentioned chain= method. now i have a new problem: osx seems to have difficulties to recognize my second ATA-bus... both DVD drives are not mounted! :-) i have "only" all my partitions mounted (NTFS & HFS+)... any suggestions? joern
  2. problems with dual boot after a clean install that works fine as a standalone... hi! i got my osx 10.4.3 installed on a second harddisk on the first partition (normally disk1s1 or secondary master in that bios). but... i only got it recognized and installed when i changed the hd to the first master or disk0s1... i opened my pc and changed the bus cable... in this combination i can boot osx really fine and some kinda fast... but... in this configuration i don't have that win xp disk (which is normally disk0) at hand (cause it's unplugged) and my secondary slave which normally is my second DVD drive and burner will not be recognized in osx (only my first DVD drive which isn't a burning drive)... when i reconfigure my drives (XP on disk0 - bootdisk and first master, DVD drive as first slave, osx on disk1s1 and secondary master, DVD burning drive as secondary slave) windows will load correct... i get that boot menue and choosed osx... the darwin boot loader is appearing and counting 5 secs... then starts darwin, the apple sign comes up and after ca. 3-5 minutes it hangs with a no parking sign... i used boot.ini and that chain.0 file to try dual boot and in that bootfile.plist of darwin/mac i statued a time countdown of 5 secs. i tried the same procedere in verbose mode... and after showing up some drivers (usb and firewire) it hangs again... then that well known message appears: “still waiting for root device”... thats my problem! why is the hard drive not recognized??? darwin boot loader shows after stroking F8 the right start partition and begins to load drivers... but i think darwin IS using the start up informations from the right partition... (i don't have another osx drive or osx DVD running) any suggestions? i don't like that idea of always having my pc open and unplug and change manually drives on the bus cable... btw... if i got osx started it works pretty fine... and relativly fast so that you can work with InDesign and Acrobat for example... joern
