I install ideneb osx 10.5.5 as well on my computer, which motherboard is Gigabyte ep45-ud3p, q600, 4gb ram, wd400 sata.


bios set sata to ahci model.


the hd has 3 partitions. partitions 1 was install osx, partition 2 was installed xp (xp installed before osx). partition 3 is ntfs, has 275gb data, Partition Map Scheme is Master Boot Record.


today I am going to install vista on partition 2.


after I boot to the vista install cd. I got the error "windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation".


I clone partition 1 to partition 2, using partition 1 for install windows, but I still got the same problem. I ghost the xp to partion1, and set the partition 1 to boot partition, it does not boot.


Then I boot with xp install cd, change R to repair it. I did FIXBOOT, FIXMBR. it still not works :unsure:


Thank you,

Thanks MacNutty,


I did, it still not works.


In what way do you mean it wont boot?

I currently boot iAtkos 2.0i 10.5.2 Mac OS X + XP.. i have the mac os x partition to boot and when i get the Darwin Boot Loader, press any key to select boot options (this might only be on iatkos) and press ENTER and choose the windows or mac partition to boot,\


Hope this helps
