20GB MAC Jrnld
XP Installed and via Disk Part (VIA RUN>CMD>DISK PART>SELECT DISK>SELECT PARTITION>(SELECT PARTITION)>ACTIVE
MACOSX Set to Active (Note OSX Not Yet Installed)
REBOOT WITH MACOSX CD IN DRIVE
Restart OSX Then:
MAC PARTITION MUST BE THE ACTIVE ONE!!!
(1)Loaded Mac OSX CD -
(2) Then select, from the menu, Utilities -> Terminal. You will get to the tiny command line of Darwin
(3) Then type: "diskutil list" (as always, without quotes). Keep note of the EXACT DISK/PARTITION where your MacOSX partition is, it will be something like: disk0s2 (Disk 0, partition #2 here).
(4)Then type "fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0". The 0 is the number following the "disk" in disk0s2. Hint for the Noobs: replace the number, here 0, with YOUR OWN MacOSX disk number!
Note: you will be in the sub command prompt of the fdisk program.
(5) Then type "p", it will list the partitions of this HDD. Verify the number of your MacOSX partition just be sure that it will be your OS X system partition and not another you will make active. The active partition (here Win XP) will be identified with an "*".
(6) Type: "flag 2" where the 2 is the partition # in the "disk0s2". Hint for the Noobs: replace the number, here 2, with YOUR OWN MacOSX partition number!
This will mark your partition as the active partition for the boot sequence at PC start-up.
(7)Type: "write" to write your changes (it will ask you if it's OK to set the changes on the next reboot, indeed, say Yes).
(8)Type: "exit" to exit fdisk program.
(9)Type: "exit" to exit Terminal.
