ok after you partition the drive of after install unmont your os partition and run these commands in termminal


fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (enter) replace 0 with your drive number, unless it is 0


update (enter)


f 1 (enter) replace 1 with the patition leopard is being installed or already installed on, if its not 1


w (enter)


q ( enter)


Remember this only works for mbr, and it will set the drive active and bootable


Ok in addidition to install the efi boot ,if you have rc 1 ,just add 1 to your hd number so if its rdisk0s1 assume its rdisk1s1 and if its rdisk2s2 assume its rdisk3s2 for the efi boot loader install.

Well, this other method worked for me on my iATKOS:

Download Hirens boot cd version 9.3, aprox. 80 MB (extraordinary repair and recue tool) burn the iso on cd, boot it from cd.

1- Go to page 2 (#9 next enter)

2- Select MBR tools (Master boot record tools)

3- Select #7 (partition doctor)

4- On operations click on "Repair MBR"

5- Restart and take out the disc

6- Congratulations, there is your Darwin bootloader

This is thanks to MilesR from Uphuck forum
