Grub and multiple OS


4 posts in this topic

I have two SATA hard disk drives (same channel) in my PC.


One one I have Windows and Linux (Ubuntu) installed; to be precise, I first installed Windows, then Linux.

During the Linux install I installed Grub into the MBR of this hard disk drive.


On the other hard disk drive I installed Kalyway 10.5.1.

There is only one partition HFS+; the format scheme is MBR.


From Grub I can boot Windows and Linux, but not Leopard.

But I can boot Leopard when booting from this second hard disk drive directly (via switching the hard disk drive boot order in BIOS).


The message I get when trying to boot from within Grub is: HFS+ partition error


Here is my grub.conf (menu.lst):


title		Microsoft Windows XP Professional
root		(hd0,0)
chainloader	+1

title=Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.1
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

title		Ubuntu Linux 7.10
root		(hd0,1)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=30f629ec-0e7d-4d94-84eb-ee8fdd8c588b ro quiet
initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic


Please help!
