Dual Boot Windows XP and Mac OS 10.6 on Acer Aspire One

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a dual boot of Windows XP and Mac OS 10.6 on my Acer Aspire One netbook. I have installed Windows XP and Mac OS X on separate partitions on the hard drive and they both run. However, I can only access the Mac OS X partition from my USB Mac OS X install disc/pen drive. Loading the installer from the pen drive allows me to use Chameleon to boot into OS X.


Booting normally goes straight to Windows XP and selecting an operating system from the BIOS only allows me to choose XP. I have changed/flagged the the Mac OS X partition as the active drive using terminal from the install disc but it still won't boot from the hard drive.


How can I use Chameleon or Chimera as the default boot loader for both my Windows XP partition and Mac OS X partition?
