    Default CANNOT boot from a partitioned USB HD

    I am fairly new to the OSX86 community but i am glad to have made the switch until I get a real Mac! Anyway, I have a 80GB USB drive with two partitions. Decided to Mac to it.

    Partition 1 40GB = (MacOSx.EXT.Journaled) Mac OS X

    Partition 2 40GB = (Fat32) Storage

    Now my problem is that MAC won't boot! i just get a BLINKING cursor during start-up. Although if the drive has no partitions at all it boots fine. Is there a way to make it boot with 2 partitions one being a mac os and the other a simple fat32 storage?

    Yes it is empty. I've tried setting partition 1 as Primary but it still did not boot and I still get the blinking cursor during boot.

    Ive finally got it working!

    I don't really know what went wrong the first time but what I did was I re-installed Darwin Bootloader and it's loading fine now.

    Thanks to icchansan for helping too.

    I just need to figure out now why I couldn't find "Don't Steal Mac OS X.kext" line under InstallAtStartUp/script/1 after I installed the Mac 10.5.5 update.

    Should i post a new thread?

    I've tried using the command
    "while sleep 1; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext; done"
    but I always get "Permission denied" so I decided to delete the file in the extensions folder. If I really need to use that command how can i bypass denied permissions?

    EDIT: Tried it again now i still get permission denied and a few seconds after i was prompted to reboot. It gave a message, something like hold the power button for a few seconds to reboot. After that it was basically time to re-install.

    I typed it in. This is the guide that I followed:

    http://ihackintosh.blogspot.com/2008...for-osx86.html

    I'm trying your guide again as soon as my install completes.

    BTW, i using iATKOS v4i installer. Do you think I should change to leo4all?

    EDIT: I just noticed that your guide used the COMBO Update whereas the guide I followed used Mac OS X Update 316MB.

    hey guys, sorry to bump onto a thread, yeah iAtkos v4.1i is 10.5.4 and from their website they state that they have built in a work around that fools the apple update making it safe to update without it killing you machine.
