I just finally got Kalway 10.5.2 installed as well... having the same problem.

 

But when I try to reboot, it just takes me back into the installation DVD from the beginning again. And if I take the DVD out of the drive, it hangs on my BIOS at 'Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key'

 

Also, I'm pretty sure my BIOS won't detect my USB keyboard anymore...

 

Any thoughts?

get it booting with MBR:

 

in terminal type:

 

diskutil unmount diskXsY

 

fdisk -e /dev/rdiskX (X=hdd number

update

flag Y (Y=parition number)

write (confirm with Y)

exit

 

dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY bs=512 count=1

find / -name "startupfiletool"

cd /PATH_TO_STARTUPFILETOOL

./startupfiletool /dev/rdiskXsY /usr/standalone/i386/boot

 

get it booting with GUID:

 

in terminal type:

 

diskutil unmount diskXsY

 

dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/GUID/boot0 of=/dev/rdiskX bs=400 count=1

dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/GUID/boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY bs=512 count=1

find / -name "startupfiletool"

cd /PATH_TO_STARTUPFILETOOL

./startupfiletool /dev/rdiskXsY /usr/standalone/i386/boot

 

 

should then boot up fine :)

Wanted to try this... as well as anything else...

 

But without my keyboard being detected, there was not much I could do. Can't even get into my BIOS anymore, so I stuck in an XP CD, blew out both my Leopard partition and my XP install (which I can no longer get to boot either, and no usb detection even after I blew out the Leopard install) and am now in the process of reinstalling XP.

 

After that, I'll want to give all this a try again.

 

But I'm a bit of a noob about all this. How do I get to boot from MBR? (And what is MBR?)

 

And everytime you have rdiskXsY listed, does it mean rdisk(disk number)s(partiton number)?

 

I think I might be able to do this, but I am a terminal/command line novice, at best!

MBR = Master Boot Record/MBR Partition table

GUID partition table is standard for mac os, but u will have to install pc_efiv8 to get it booting up on a guid partition table

correct :)

So let me ask you this... how different/easier would the process be if I just owned two hard drives, rather than using a partition on one drive? Anything different to this process?
