HELP ON BOOTING!


2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Here's the deal:

 

I installed 10.4.4 and then updated to 10.4.7 JaS update.

 

Everything was OK, I was using Windows XP bootloader to load chain0 to be able to select Mac's partition.

 

Suddenly, chain0 stoped working.

 

I tried Acronis Disk Director, Boot Loader and got HFS+ Error.

 

Then, I set Mac Os partition active (Windows were active before).

 

Now booting is ok direct to OSx86 but I can't get Windows options like there were in chain0;

 

My partition table is the following:

 

3 primary partitions (first NTFS, second FAT32 (data), third HFS+);

 

Any help?

If by this you mean a selection menu for OSX and Windows, then:

 

Setting the timeout parameter will force the Darwin (OSX) bootloader to appear so that you can choose OSX or Windows to boot.

Boot into OSX.

 

Edit the boot.plist file at "/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist" and add the following:

 

<key>Timeout</key>

<string>10</string>

 

You can edit the file by dragging it to the Desktop and editing it with TextEdit, then dragging it back, answering the 2 resulting dialogs - Authenticate and yes to replace, then followed by using Disk Utility to repair permissions on the OSX partition.

 

Or you can do it via Terminal with this command:

sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
