Vista/Leopard Dualboot with rEFIt?

Recommended Posts



Well I successfully installed iatkos Leopard on partition 1 and Vista on partition 2.

Now my only "problem" is that i don't like the bootmanager much;

I have only 5sec to choose Vista or it starts up Leopard and I don't like the text layout.

I want something more visual with icons...just like the rEFIt screen.


When I installed rEFIt everythng seemed to go smoothly but when I did a reboot nothing happend.

I mean, I got the normal bootmanager with the 5sec - and then it just started Leopard.

So, Am I missing something? I read something about "bootcamp"- do I have to install this too?

Or do I have to delect a folder with the old bootmanager??



Partition Inspector gave me this:
