boot loader looping


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I installed to my third partition for a triple boot solution using Win XP, Vista, Mac OSX.

I used bcdedit to setup the vista bootloader. I can boot to xp or vista, but when I choose Mac OSall that happens is it loops back to the vista bootloader.


Any help that you can offer would be most appreciated.


Here is my bootloader setup.




Windows Boot Manager


identifier {bootmgr}

device partition=D:

inherit {globalsettings}
