Bootloader for BIOS?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I need to find botloader for BIOS.

Reason is simple: I have installed OSX and Linux.

Linux bootloader cannot see (U)EFI bootloader and never boots into OSX, it can can call bootloader but Grub is written for BIOS and calling is impossible. Selecting OSX causes only reboot.

Exist any OSX bootloader for BIOS?

 

Thank you for help, reply or comments.

I am not quite sure if I understand you correctly.

You can't boot OS X from a PC natively. However, bootloaders like, for instance, Clover will let you boot OS X as well as windows and linux.

Clover still supports Legacy BIOS mode, i.e. non-UEFI mode. It's a simple matter of selecting the correct config mode at Clover's installation time.

So, to have it clear:

1. installed OSX

2. installed Linux

3. Grub bootloader active - choices 1. Linux / 2. OSX

4. at OSX selection it only reboots instead entering OSX bootloader (default - not Clover or other)

5. reason: Grub cannot see (U)EFI so cannot load OSX bootloader

It seems there are two partitions. One is Linux and second contains OSX.

You have to install legacy boot Clover on the second partition and boot second partition as a bootable partition.
