Ok...this is rather odd. So I'm trying to triple boot XP, Ubuntu, and Leo4All. Now, I've gotten Mac to work on my computer before. Now I'm just multi-booting. So my partition set up is....:

(In order on my hard disk)

Windows XP - NTFS - 30GB

Extended Partition -

............Linux - ReiserFS - 30GB

............Linux-Swap - 2.83GB

Mac OS X - (not installed yet) - FAT32 - 50GB

DATA - FAT32 - 120GB

 

Both Linux and Windows are already installed. So, when I load up Leo4Allv2's setup I go into disk utility to format the 50gig FAT32 partition to HFS+....or so I think. Nothing happens really...it still thinks its FAT32. So I go into GParted...GParted says it's HFS+ though... I then when back into disk utility in the Mac setup. Still reads it as FAT32. And when I go to Verify Disk in First Aid it says "Invalid BS_jmpBoot in boot block: 000000".

 

Thanks in advance!

Ok...so I got all three operating systems on there. (Now remember, I have gotten Leopard to work on this same computer before, just it was ONLY Leopard) I have a SATA drive and I get the oh so famous "Still waiting for root device"....but why? My BIOS are the same as before! It SHOULD work but I don't know why... I'm using the vanilla kernel if that means anything (I have SSE3) I have both Windows XP and Ubuntu fully working so if I need to patch anything I think I can...please, point me in the right direction!

 

Thanks in advance!
