Hi guys,

I have a wierd situation here. After I succesfully installed Leopard and then rebooted. My system didn't want to boot from the harddisk. It gave me an error message "?0 error". The guestion mark was some letters/numbers that I can't read; because the text displayed on the left side, byond the monitor could display.

The system can only boot with the Kalyway 10.5.1 install DVD inside the DVD drive. After the boot up, the system worked with no problem. I can even eject the install DVD and turn off the system.

 

But at next boot I need the install DVD inside the DVD burner.

I did the install in 2 set up situations. The only difference of them are the type of the hard disks. Both set ups need the install dvd to boot up everytime.

Did I do something wrong? Did I forget something?

 

Here are the informations:

 

Leopard version: Kalyway 10.5.1

Differences between my install settings:

My settings: I didn't choose; I just toke a parttion (the first one, the hard disk already partitioned in 3 FAT32 partitions), erased it and made it in Mac partition. The reason I didn't choose MBR or GUID Partition Table; I don't want the other partition will be erased. I plan to install an dual booting system: XP + Leopard.

Sounds like the bootloader isnt installed, did you use guid or mbr and did you tick the appropriate bootloader on custom installation of the kalyway disk.

 

if you used guid you can follow this guide

If you installed mbr and definatly ticked the bootloader check that your partition is flagged as bootable.
