This is what you need;


Partition Magic 8 (or any app like it)

UBCD 3.3 (or just any app bootable that can handle partitions)

The Patched markland-tiger.iso (generic install patch 1)

of course, a pc running xp


so this is what i started of with;


1 Partition for storage -> Disc0 partition1

2nd Partition for XP -> Disc0 partition2


I used partition magic 8 do downsize partition 1 by 10gb's

then, used diskpart to create hfs+ partition of 8 gb's of the unallocated space with the

"DISKPART> create partition primary size=8000 id=af", make shure you have navigated to the right disc though. look here -> http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...F2003_method.29



This pushed my partition nr#2 down and actually made it partition nr#3 and created the new hfs+ partition as nr#2



Edited boot.ini using the chain0 method and put my XP partition as nr#3

read here -> http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...bootloader_boot

get the chain0 file here -> http://www.360hacker.net/chain0.rar



Used the "Osx86 generic install patch 1" dvd to install to the new HFS+ partition 2.



Rebooted and watched my pc boot in to OS X by default.



Booted with UBCD 3.3 and changed the boot partition from 2 to 3 using some partition app under "F3".



Used the win xp bootloader to get into the darwin bootloader to boot OS X.



Works like charm!






Abit IC7 Mobo, Intel 875P chipset, Socket 478

Intel Pentium 4 3,2 ghz (Prescott, SSE3)

Realtek "Family" Nic 10/100 Mbits

Geforce 3 Ti

Seagate Barracuda SATA disc



sound, lan, firewire and USB2 working flawlessly!

os X uses the full HFS+ partition size and can acces both ntfs partitions.
