:DDual boot Windows Xp with Mac OSX :D


Using disk utility create two partitions with Partition Map Scheme : Master Boot Record

and erase them as :-

1.Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for installing mac

2.MS-DOS (FAT) for installing windows

now install mac on partition 1 and after successful install of OSX reboot.

now reformat the partition as NTFS (during installation of xp) and install xp on partition 2

after installing xp go to \ (root) and paste CHAIN0


open boot.ini and add

C:\chain0="Mac OS X"


your boot.ini should look like this


[boot loader]



[operating systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

C:\chain0="Mac OS X"

now reboot and choose Mac OS X to boot into mac and select harddisk partion hd(0,1) for boot into mac .
