Cant get boot loader to work... Inspiron n5040 10.9.1

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i have tried about a thousand times to get my boot loader to work on my inspiron n5040.


Intel Core i3 M80

Intel HD Graphics

4GB DDR3 Ram


I have tried chameleon and chimera.. usually I just get a boot0 error, but a couple of times i have gotten a boot loader to load by changing something in terminal but then when i try to boot in to my mavericks install I either get a kernel panic or the dell immediately reboots. 


I have been trying to follow this (attached PDF) , and a few other ways.



Basically what I'm trying to do is make 2 partitions and dual boot mavericks and win7. What should I install first? than what?

Help please!
