Multi-boot with Leopard & BrazilMac

Having some trouble configuring Leopard to multi-boot, I've installed using the BrazilMac ISO, over-writing the Tiger partition I had before. The laptop is currently setup in a quad-boot configuration, with two NTFS partitions for Windows Vista and XP, one ext3 for Fedora Core 7 Linux and one FAT32 Data partition, as well as the Leopard partition, using the Vista bootloader and chain0.

 

The error I get when I select Leopard from the bootloader is "chain booting error". I've searched the Wiki and found it could be a possible partition filesystem error, has anybody got any idea how to fix it?

 

Cheers,

MaidenFan

Vista - 20Gb Primary

XP - 20Gb Primary

Fedora - 10Gb Primary

Leopard - 15Gb Extended

Data - 46Gb Extended

 

Maybe Leopard should be Primary? Tiger seemed fine with booting to an Extended partition?

I've read that Leopard should be installed to an MBR partition and not GUID, but to be honest I don't know how that relates to primary partitions. I think it has to do with what you mentioned, about primary and extended partitions.

 

It seems that Leopard, unlike Tiger needs to be on a primary partition.
