Ok heres how I fixed a few things with the dual boot. I installed XP on the hard drive.

Then I used a partion program and divided the hard drive in 2.

I then ran the Toh RC2 install DVD, and let it run its course.

After the install it would load up Os-x. It hit F8 and got the dual boot

menu from os-x. I then loaded into Xp. I then set the partion for Xp to

Active and Download Tboot. (google Tboot) I then copied that to C: folder.

Then went to desktop right clicked on my computer properties. Went to the

advanced tab. Clicked on Startup and Recovery Tab "Settings"

Clicked the time to display list of operating systems 30sec

then I hit the edit button and added this command under the last

entry: C:\tboot="Leopard"

Done enjoy


Next was the disapering ethernet card in leopard after loading up Xp then going back to

Os-x. Here was my work around.

In Windows.

Right click my computer, Goto hardware tab Click it. Then click Device Manager.

Scroll to the Network adapters Double click the card you are using.

Click the advanced tab. There should be a list there.

Here is what you are looking for scroll down to

Wake-On-Lan After shut down - Enable this setting.

WakeUp on ARP/Ping - Enable this setting.



Zboard works after the os-x load up but not before. It's useless anyway.


As far as the audio goes see link below for my other post.







There you have it
