Chain0 and Dual Boot

Recommended Posts

I am trying to do a dual-boot solution right now. Here is what I have done.

 

1. Installed Windows 2000 on 1 partition.

2. Installed Acronis Disk Director,

3. Forgot to install OS Selector

4. Rebooted and installed OSX

 

My system no automatically boots to OS X. How do I modify chain0 temporarily so I can choose Windows as my boot OS so I can install OS Selector.

 

Everything I have found on chain0 talks about calling it from boot.ini, but I am in the opposite boat right now as my default boot is to OSX.

I think you don´t need another bootloader, just use the Darwin bootloader. When OSX86 is booting press F8 (be quick) and you can choose the volume you want to boot.

Give yourself 8 seconds to choose rather than having to be super quick:

put this in your /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

 

<key>Timeout</key>

<string>8</string>
