Open up the terminal, and type this in.

 

diskutil list

 

Remember the name of the HDD.Should be disk0 by default.This is only if you have Mac OS X86 only on your HDD. If you dual boot, then remember the name of the partition you used for X86.

 

Open a new shell, and type this in now.

fdisk

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 or the name of the partition, or HDD.

write

It will ask you something, I forget what, but just put y

Should say offset something.Can't entirely remember.

Reboot your machine, and it should boot up.

I think you need to do "sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0" and before you "write", you set the partition active with "f 1" (the whole purpose of this exercise)

 

Go to my Fdisk guide for step-by-step instructions:

thanks i finally changed it!

 

damn, i installed linux last night so now that boots and not osx86, i guess i have to edit the boot loader?

 

i think i'm just going to re-format everything since i installed linux in vmware.

 

install osx in vmware, then install linux after native.
