I have a fully-functioning HP G60 635US running 10.6.5. Wifi, native resolution (no CE/QI, only thing not working), audio, I use insomnia so I can close my computer with VoodooPower, disc drive, and boot without CD. However, booting without CD was a huge issue for my computer as I couldn't (and still can't) figure out how to get Chameleon to work at all, let alone dual boot my windows installation (never got far enough to try). Darwin didn't work either, and using EasyBCD would let windows boot, but not Mac.

 

So, for anyone else having problems getting their computer to boot without the need of a CD or USB stick, I have found a temporary solution. This is a very simple fix and I can guarantee it to work, but you MUST have a windows installation of some kind.

 

To Download:

EasyBCD 2.0.2 (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1)

This Guide Assumes You Already Have Windows and Mac OSX Installed. If you can boot into them with the help of a boot CD, this is for you. This is not for you if have not installed OSX yet.

 

1. Download and install EasyBCD.

2. After setting it up, hit add entry.

3. For the entry, on the bottom select screen, select to boot to an .iso file.

4. Save, exit, and restart.

5. Restarting, choose to boot from your .iso.

6. Pick the partition that your OS is saved on, and it will boot.

 

 

Does not require anything but EasyBCD, and it works if you have your OS's on seperate partitions on the same hard drive.

 

Questions or comments, post below, I'll answer to the best of my ability. My goal is to be able to boot to this .iso without depending on EasyBCD, but for now this works wonders.
