Dual boot issues with mac osx and windows 8

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a similar problem with my dual boot, but I only can boot into Windows 8. I only can see this message: "boot: done", and nothing else, it boots into windows 8 and I need a DVD to boot into my ML partition.

 

What could it be??

 

PD: This is the Chameleon_Installer_log.txt:

Very easy fix. Boot into Windows install DVD.

1. Choose language and select Repair your Computer.

2. I don't think it will find any installations but click next without windows highlighted.

3. Open CMD and type this:

diskpart.exe

list disk

select disk 0 (or the drive windows is installed on)

list partition

select partition 1 (You should select the partition what's around 200MB.

active

exit

reboot and done

Select System Reseved to boot into windows and not the partition windows is on.

 

Isn't the Windows 7 partition always hidden in chameleon and System reserved is always there?

Hello, I followed the steps, but the problem is still here, Chameleon doesn't appear (only 2 messages: "boot0: test" and "boot0:done") and only boots into Windows 8. :wallbash::(
