Ok here's the background info:


eMachines T3612

Intel 945G chipset

GMA 950


SATA recognized and working


Now I installed with JaS 10.4.8 DVD with semthex 8.8.1 kernel


I formatted my WD 120GB SATA HD to HFS+ journaized


Install went fine but upon reboot it won't boot.


I want this computer to be an OSX only machine so I don't need to dual boot. I assume I need a bootloader but which? How do I install it?

No bootable device found error


Kind of like when you don't have a HD hooked up and no bootable drives.


No loading of anything on the HD at all.


Like I said... should it boot without a bootloader?

I set the mac partition active using:


Use osx86 dvd then boot, after a welcome screen

Click 'Utility" menu then choose terminal,

I Typed:

mount -a (enter)

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (enter)

print (enter)

f 1 (enter)




edit: I did not do the MBR selection - I checked around disk utility after booting with my DVD and partitioned the drive into 2 since it uses MBR - I had 1 GUID partition. Hopefully this will work.... reinstalling now
