Recommended Posts

Found my boot cd in post #500

 

 

 

Dell Latitude D630. GM965 x3100 3495abg T7300

 

i get snow leopard working, everything but wifi/"airport", using this guide:

http://byteco.de/2009/12/06/successful-ins...d-on-dell-d630/

 

it uses:

iHack

the chameleon 2 bootloader

Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2.0-RC3 r658

Build date: 2009-09-06 14:04:42

3061MB memory

 

Kext Utility x64 for Mac OS X

v2.4.2 © cVad 2009

 

SATA = AHCI

Flash Cache Module = Enabled

 

i don't know what i'm doing when it comes to hackintosh. i really don't much about bootloaders. to get this working, i'm going to my friends house who has a mac, and taking my HDD out and plugging it in to their mac as a usb drive.

 

BUT I NEED WIFI. So I've been looking for a dual boot.

 

Thank you.

 

I'll update this post if I get everything working.

Simple Dual Boot Guide: Windows XP + OSX86 (Hackintosh)

 

***Please post your feedback here, after following the guide.

 

***Make sure that you already tested osx86 to run with your specs, or that your specs are osx86 compatible.

 

 

 

This is the best ever dual boot technique that I've tried and used.

It is so simple to setup and plus no Dual Boot Software required.

 

You may choose the following:

 

A. Using Darwin Boot Loader

B. Using Windows XP Boot Loader

 

***Users who have windows xp already installed on 2nd partition of their hard drive, use my created bootcd to move the windows xp partition to the first part of the hard drive making it the first partition. After that, update the MBR.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Things to be on hand before executing the following procedures:

 

1. OS install CDs

- WinXP

- OSX 10.4.8

- Clean and Unpartitioned Hard Drive, no data/files in it.

 

 

2. My BootCD (3.5mb)

 

- post your request here, download link will be sent to you

 

- download and burn it.

 

3. Chain0 File

 

- necessary when using windows xp boot loader

 

4. OSX Boot File (com.appleboot.plist)

- necessary when using darwin boot loader

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Procedures:

 

A. Using Darwin's Boot Loader

 

 

1:

  • Boot windows xp install cd and create a partition and allocate at least 5gb (5,000 mb) or depending on your preference and resources. If there's any existing partition, delete them all until you only see one unpartitioned hard drive, before doing this step.

2:

  • Create the first partition for windows xp installation as mentioned above, and leave the other partition untouched, or leave it unpartitioned.

***The first partition is for windows xp

The second partition is for osx

The third partition is for all your files to be stored in

 

3:

  • Proceed with windows xp installation procedures, make sure that It will boot properly after installation. Boot the newly installed Windows XP, and input a volume name for your windows xp partition.

4:

  • After Installation, boot from my created bootcd.

a. press enter when "

b. press enter when
MY TOOLS

7:

 

  • After successful installation, restart your system and eject the install dvd, darwin will boot osx and will take you to account creation, etc.

12.

13.

  • You're done.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

B. Using Windows XP's Boot Loader

2.>

  • Insert my created bootcd and boot from it.

3:>

  • Upon reaching Partition Magic's user interface

  • Right-click the windows xp partition.

  • Click Advance, then

  • click Set Active, then

  • click OK, then Apply, then Yes, and finally OK.

4.>

  • under Default Operating System, click on EDIT

  • at the end insert: c:chain0="MAC OS X Tiger"

  • it should look like this:

[operating systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)0000="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

c:chain0="MAC OS X Tiger"

 

-------------------------

***do not alter the blue text, just add the red text. the one above is just an example of the contents of my boot.ini file.

 

***you may change MAC OS X TIGER to other names you like. ie. OSX

7.>

  • Click Ok and close all dialogues, reboot to test. Good Luck!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

***This whole procedures had worked for my machine.

***PLEASE POST YOUR RESULTS HERE IF YOU'RE SUCCESSFUL

 

***ERROR LOADING OPERATING SYSTEM, when booting osx

 

solution:

use the bootcd to make windows parition active, and then reboot, then boot again from the boot cd.

use again the bootcd to change back osx parition into active. reboot again, osx should boot now.

 

HEYYY
