  1. Hey thanks for your guide, quaestor! I know its not much, but thank you. I don't own a G60, but have been eyeing the one at my "friendly" brick and mortar Bestbuy for awhile. Hey I was wondering, though, are you dual booting with windows or not? And quaestor, if its true you are running windows with osx, which windows, and which bootloader? In addition, did you end up with a GUID hard drive or a MBR header? Thanks!
  2. Hey guys, I used Kalyway 10.5.2 on a laptop with an Intel Core 2 Duo, with Vista, Linux, and XP preinstalled. The installation went through, and I was able to get into OSX afterwards, but as I wanted to retain the Vista bootloader, and “winload” was corrupted, I put in my Vista installation CD and “Repaired My Computer”. I was able to recover back into Vista and quickly went to EasyBCD and added OSX to the Vista bootloader. However, I can’t get back into OSX. If I set in EasyBCD my OSX installation as MBR, when I choose my OSX installation on the Vista bootloader, I get the BLINKING CURSOR ERROR. I’ve scoured almost all forum posts and none of the suggestions work for me. I’m even unable to access my OSX boot even with the Kalyway boot CD inside (which is the most suggested trick). If I try and set in EasyBCD my OSX installation as EFI, when I choose my OSX installation on the Vista bootloader, I get: Grub> I’m honestly out of ideas and hopefully someone actually understands what to do with a blinking cursor error. I’ve already tried the EasyBCD “HFS+ Partition Error” fix and that didn’t work. Thank you so much in advance.

  4. Hey guys, Using Kalyway 10.5.2, I've gotten through the installation process but unusually, I am unable to boot to anything. My Vista bootloader remains intact, but anytime I select my Mac OS on the bootloader, I'm sent to a blank screen with a blinking cursor--no Darwin whatsoever. Note: when I finished installing, unusually, Darwin did not write itself on my computer. Rather, I was able to access the Vista bootloader from the start, which is seemingly already something wrong. Thanks in advance if anyone's got any ideas.
  5. MacDrive + Transmac Not Detecting HFS+J partition

    In addition, I do not have the SPTD.SYS file in: C:/Windows/System32/Drivers folder. It's not even in there. I also do not currently have 120% or DT installed, but did before a long time ago, but I still don't see the SPTD.SYS file in there, so I don't think that's the issue.
  6. Kernel Panic at Shutdown

    Whenever I select: "Shut down", everything shuts down, but leaves my wallpaper up, and then all of a sudden, kernel panic pops up. If I select: "Restart", this doesn't occur. This is on a Gateway laptop, and I've seen other threads, but they seem to refer to desktop motherboard BIOS setting issues, and my available BIOS setting changes are limited and do not include the things discussed. Anybody have any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  7. Okay, I have a dual boot config so its pretty important (convenience wise) that I'm able to access my HFS+J on my Windows, hence, the MacDrive installation. However, MacDrive doesn't show that there's any HFS+J drives in Windows Explorer. So, I tried TransMac. Also no luck--it doesn't detect any HFS+J drives either. When I use MacDrive Disk Utility though to check disks, it does notice there's a "system32" disk that's the same size as my HFS+J...except my HFS+J drive is called "Mac" and not "system32". I don't see that anyone else is having this problem. I am able to boot into Leopard and I am able to see my Vista drive from Leopard. I have given full read+write access to "everyone" in Leopard's sharing and permissions on the "Mac"-HFS+J. Any thoughts? I thank you all in advance.
