hfs+ partition error

Recommended Posts



I am, new to this forum and this is my first post.


I installed OS X 10.5.2 to my HP DV9500 and everything went as the

guide (http://dailyapps.net/2008/03/hack-attack-d...-windows-vista/)

said it would and as of right now, the computer boots into OS X exclusively and only from

the DVD. I am unable to dual boot.


I would like to try the whole "fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 flag 1quit reboot" thing that seems to work

for everyone else how ever when I depress F8 at ANY point once the computer is turned

on (nevermind when accessing the DVD) it just ighnores me and continues with the

lines of text that seem to come from the Darwin loader followed by OS X.


I think I am missing the whole single user thing but I do not see where that option would

come from.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply.


The suggested fix you posted in the other thread will apply

in my case?


It seems from the note you made at the bottom that your not

sure about the booting from the DVD. As with the other post, my

Leopard OS will only boot from the DVD but it runs off the HDD once

loaded. I have no access to the Vista OS also on the HDD.


I would prefer a boot menu where I can choose between the two

rather than defaulting to Vista unless that DVD is in the drive

where it will default to Leopard.
