  1. Bump. Can anyone help me here? I really would like to have XP running along with my Windows 7 and Snow Leopard installs..
  2. This situation is very confusing for me. I've been trying to work on it for about a week now and cannot figure things out properly. I want to triple boot Snow Leopard, Windows 7, and Windows XP on my Dell Latitude E6400. I've previously configured Snow Leopard and Windows 7 properly with Chameleon 2 RC3 bootloader but now I've got a new issue. I would also like to start from scratch and add Windows XP but instead of reinstalling XP from scratch, I need to use an Acronis .tib image file instead. Through research I found that you can only incorporate Acronis image files into a GPT formatted disk with the enterprise version of Backup and Recovery 10. I learned that you also need to place XP onto the fourth partition (the 1st being the EFI partition) if you want it to work properly. So I booted to my Snow Leopard install disc, opened Disk Utility, and formatted it like so: 1.) EFI 2.) Mac OS X (10.6) Snow Leopard - HFS 3.) Windows 7 - FAT32 4.) Windows XP - FAT32 (Which becomes NTFS when the image is extracted to this partition) After finishing, I rebooted the machine into the Acronis Backup and Recovery 10 Enterprise environment to restore the old XP volume into its allocated place on the drive. I only restore the volume itself and choose to not include the MBR from the image because when I created the image, it was the only OS installed and that would throw off the GPT formatting I just did in Disk Utility. I can install Windows 7 from the disc that I have and it works just fine. XP is giving me the problems here! I cannot for the life of me get it to boot. I've tried booting into it from the Chameleon 2 RC3 CD that I have and it does not load at all. What do I need to do to make it active?
  3. Intel 5100 wireless Users

    As far as I know, the Intel 5100/5300 802.11a/g/n chipsets do not have any kext support currently.. I am willing to send money to support and help test drivers for the 5300 a/g/n chipset (my Dell Latitude E6400 has no WiFi) Any coders out there? HELP US!

  6. Well I fixed the multi-boot problem.. You MUST format the Windows partitions to FAT in the OS X Disk Utility (from the install disc). I was previously formatting them to HFS+ (Journaled) and then trying to edit them from Ubuntu later. It turns out that the Windows setup refuses to install on a drive with GPT but if you format the partitions correctly, it's a hybrid setup that allows the Windows setup to run even though the drive is formatted with a GUID Partition Table. Starting from scratch, I didn't even need to use an Ubuntu LiveCD! New news: upgrading to 10.6.1 has been smooth but last night when I tried going to 10.6.2, I experienced a kernel panic! I believe it has to do with the SleepEnabler kext but I could be totally wrong.. I'm new to the OS X and OSx86 scene in general but here is the general idea of what was on my screen after upgrading to 10.6.2: panic(CPU 0 caller 0x2a86f7): "Version mis-match between Kernel and CPU PM"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1486.2.11/osfmk/i386/pmCPU.c:681 Debugger called: <panic> Backtrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) Kernel Extensions in backtrace (with dependencies): sk.triaxis.kext.SleepEnabler(1.0.0)@0x2e837000->0x2e838fff BSD process name corresponding to current thread: Unknown Mac OS version: Not yet set Kernel version: Darwin Kernel Version 10.2.0: Date/Time information...

  7. Now the guide says 'delete the first partition' but I am not deleting the ACTUAL first partition. The first partition for me is EFI so I am actually just deleting the second partition which is my space for Windows 7. I've got it set up for 3 partitions (but there are 4 including the EFI partition). 1. EFI 2. Windows 7 3. Windows XP 4. Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) After deleting the Windows 7 and Windows XP partitions in Ubuntu, pulling up the Vista install disc (which I will upgrade to 7) it says I cannot install to any part of the disc if it is GPT. I set the drive to GUID Partition Table when I installed OS X and it seems as if I cannot install Windows at all if the drive isn't set up with a MBR.. =( Could it be that I'm using Windows Vista Business SP1 vs Windows 7 Professional?
  8. I got everything working on the Snow Leopard side of things but when trying to complete Step 2 of dual booting, I've run into some issues. When partitioning the drive initially before my Snow Leopard setup, I made both partitions HFS+ Journaled and made sure to use GUID instead of the other 2 (MBR and something else).. With OSX running perfectly, I pulled up Ubuntu and followed the directions for deleting and reformatting the partition for Windows. Popping in the Vista CD to install the OS on that empty partition, I got an error saying I cannot install on a drive with GPT.. How do I install Windows Vista/7?!?! I verified in Ubuntu that I chose NTFS for that Windows partition but the overall drive is GUID Partition Table.. Please help!
  9. Thank you so much for making this SO simple! Unfortunately, being a college student, the wifi is a big necessity of mine so I'm anxiously awaiting a kext to enable it properly... PLEASE keep this project going for the E6400/E6500 models
