Been having the Xp or Leopard option on boot up since i installed leopard months ago. Then the other day while switching HD i noticed it booted straight to Leopard with no options. and the Xp harddrive is still accessible from Leopard.

 

How do i get the dual boot option back again? i remember its adding something to a file but i forgot which one. thanks in advance.

I have a dual boot with Vista and Leopard. Have a file called boot.ini in C:\ with this in it:

 

[boot loader]

timeout=0

c:\chain0="Mac OS X Leopard"

[operating systems]

c:\chain0="Mac OS X Leopard"

 

and also make sure you have the chain0 file in C:\

my boot.ini file says

 

[boot loader]

timeout=30

default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS

[operating systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

C:\chain0="Mac OS x86"

 

is this correct?
