    Snow Leopard partition as the boot drive

    Awesome, thanks Cinner! Well i have discovered my Dell BIOS does not support changing the boot priority order, it must be on SATA port 0, which is why when SL is installed i have so much trouble selecting the 2nd SATA drive. So, my next theory is to go through the guide you linked to, get the USB setup, install SL then physically switch SATA cables so SL is in SATA port 0. SHould work in theory at least in my mind :-) Thanks again for your assistance!
  2. Good Day, OK, I completely ditched my windows 7 dual boot situation. So, only have guid partitions now, no windows, no mbr (want this desktop as a hackintosh only) Just did a clean install of Kalyway 10.5.2 on SATA drive (for the umpteenth time) Now I want to install SL onto my other SATA drive, now here are my questions. - since i just installed Kalyway is there anything i need to install bootloader wise on this partition, or just leave darwin as is? -once i install SL - do i need to set the Snow Leopard partition as the boot drive? If so, how? I think the partitioning is where I am getting confused, cuz believe me, i have been running leopard and windows for sometime without issues. But i really want Leopard and snow leopard to work on this box. I have tried every chameleon version known and after installing SL, it just never shows up for me to select - so i am missing something, somewhere. Thanks for reading and thanks for any suggestions.

    One small step for Mac

    Thanks for the input Lord. Just to clarify, is this the PC EFI 10.1 from Dr. Hurt? Can i use it? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183325 Thanks again, appreciate it!
  4. Ok I am racking my brain here, have used the AMD install guide and installed SL to a seperate SATA drive, have leopard and windows 7 on the other SATA drive. Using mach_kernel.test7 Installed chameleon RC 2 to SL partition as per guide instructions, when i boot up though i don't see the SL drive at all so i can't tell if it is going to boot or not. When I am in leopard or windows i can see and access the SL drive without issues. i have done so much reading its now bogged down my brain and i cannot figure out why chameleon is not loading at startup. Also copied correct boot file to replace chameleon RC 2 boot file. if anyone has any suggestions it is most certainly appreciated. if I haven;t provided enough detail let me know - just a little ancy to get this working or at least see if SL will boot. Thanks in advance
  5. Used this guide to insall SL on seperate SATA drive. have windows 7 and leopard 10.5.8 running on the other SATA drive. upon reboot I don't have the option to choose SL, it's still using my default bootloader, in fact i am so confused now not sure what its loading. I have easy bcd on windows 7 so it is loading that, does that have anything to do with it? Do i install chameleon on my leopard partition to? I should have chameleon loading at startup so i can select whatever os but its not doing that. I installed chameleon on SL as per the guide but am confused if i should install on leopard as well. Anyone? Thanks in advance and appreciate this guide.
