The setup:


First HDD - Windows Xp


Second HDD - OSx 10.4.5 - 250 Mb primary partition, AF type, BOOT flagged (with linux knoppix)




For some reason the partition with OSx on it even that is bootable it doesn't have some information on it or something. To boot OSx I need to swich the HDD boot order in BIOS every time and insert the DVD to boot from it.




Of course when I need to boot in Win XP I have to take the OSx DVD out and change the order in bios again and place the HDD with windows before the OSx one.




Booting OSx:


If I have the DVD inside it will ask me if I want to start the install or F8 for options. I choose to wait and it boots from DVD then starts the OSx from hard drive.


If I do not have the DVD inside is trying to boot from HDD and I get the black screen with the blinking coursor in the left hand side of the screen and the led is on and on searching continouously something on hard disk.




Inside OSx the Startup Disk crashes.




Any ideeas?
