HFS+ Partition Error


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've installed OSX 10.4.8 Jas version on my vista. While everything go smooth during my installation, I found that I faced this error after trying to boot into OSX86. I'm trying to make it dual boot with Vista. Already set Primary and Active the partition for OSX86, tried insert the OSX86 disc while booting. But the problem still persist. I've searched the forum with "HFS+" but nothing seems to come out, is there any solution for me? Thanks.
