Leopard and XP dualboot

Hi guys, I´m new here.

 

First of all, I really appreciate your work, making Leopard work on x86 Computers.

I have downloaded the Kalyway 10.5.1 iso. I´m installing right now, i hope it will work later on.

 

Here my specs:

Gigabyte X38-DS5

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750

2GB Kingston HyperX 1066Mhz

2 x ATI HD 3870 Crossfire (I installed the ATI Drivers at the customization menu, was that right?)

1 x 320GB SATA

1 x 250GB SATA

 

I Partitioned the 320GB HDD to:

 

1.Partiton 15GB - currently installing MacOS X

2.Partition 15GB - want to use for Windows XP

3. Partition 98GB (it has to be much more, or not? MacOSX setup deteced both HDDs with 128GB, why?)

 

the second HDD is full of games, apps and music.

 

What do I have to do, to get a Dual Boot with XP and OS X?

Is there a chance to get a "nice" bootloader? Like installing Vista and XP? Or is it just possible, to press F8 during booting?

 

best regards,

Johnny_

 

EDIT:

The setup failed! I got an error message at the end of the setup. At the Customize Installation I installed the whole Vanilla stuff and the GUID Bootloader.

Was that wrong? Please help me.

HI,

I am dual booting xp and 10.5.1

windows wont install on GUID partition. so you have to partition MBR.So using XP CD create 2 primary partitions(MBR).Install XP first to one partition

Followed by kalyway 10.5.1 to second partition. on reboot Darwin bootloader will ask you to press any key(not F8) within 5 seconds to select a start up volume.now You have a dualboot menu!!. no need to install third party bootloader.no need to do any thing else. GOODLUCK
