Dual Boot (Windows+Mac) Keyboard,Mouse package post install

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am using a Dell Inspiron 15R (N5110) with the following config


Core i5-2430M 2.4GHZ



Dell Wireless card

Nvidia 525M 1GB


Now i installed OS X using the iATKOS v7 DVD. I could not use it directly as i was getting a real time clock initialization error, hence i had to use the flags cpus=4 and busratio=34.


During installation i used the chameleon 2 setup and installed it on the mac os x disk.

Also i did not choose any custom packages.


Now after installation and reboot, i have two problems.

First one is that the installed OS X does not recognize my keyboard and mouse.

Second thing is that i am not able to understand the process of getting it to dual boot. I mean after i could not get my window installation back, i booted from the DVD again and i used the -s mode. In the command line i typed.

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0

flag 1



This got me back to booting window by default, however i want to get an option to boot both. I know i can use BOOT0, but i am not able to get that.


Apart from that what to do about the keyboard and mouse driver problem? Any way of installing the correct packages WITHOUT re-installing
