do this:


1. erase the leopard partition with disk utility from your active tiger OS

2. install a fresh tiger OS on the leopard partition (i used XxX)

3. boot into your activ tiger OS and erase all the files on the leopard partition (do not erase with disk util)

4. install leopard on that partition

5. do the post-patch on your active tiger

6. boot leopard


it solved the "ERROR LOADING OPERATING SYSTEM" for me.. probably there are other ways to do it..
