    Question [disk utility] How to transfer a MBR partition to a new one on a new disk

    After succesfully instaling Leopard (Kalyway) on a small partition in a secondary drive in my work PC, I decided to purchase a 320GB SATA2 drive to have more space to check Leopard properly.
    I plan to partition this new disk in this way:

    P1: 100gb partition for Leopard, MBR so I can dualboot with windows & MAC using XP boot manager
    P2: 220gb for XP

    So, my computer now has the disks partitioned as follows:

    1) XP Boot Disk (SATA2)
    P1: 30gb System Partition (chain0 file located in root here)
    P2: 290gb Data Partition

    2) Old 160gb P-ATA (IDE) disk
    P1: 148gb XP
    P2: 12gb MBR MAC partition (working fine)

    3) New SATA2 Disk (This is the brand new disk)
    P1: 100gb partition for Leopard, MBR
    P2: 220gb for XP

    Now... how can I clone and expand the 12gb partition located at D2P2 (Disk2Partition2) into the freshly created D3P1 ?

    I tried a lot of things:

    using diskutility I restored D2P2 into D3P1, process took about 20 minutes, but after booting (removing D2 from the machine) I get chain booting error. To do this I dragged D2P2 into origin and D3P1 into destination.

    Then I tried (after repartitioning again just in case) Symantec Ghost to clone D2P2 into D3P1, it was a partial success, it booted fine, but I ended with a 100gb partition that Leopard recognizes only as 12GB, the remaining 88 are in limbo, since they cannot be reasigned nor accessed.

    Tried using diskutil resizevolume [drivename] limits and it returns error 9989 if I recall, further reading indicated that this feature can only be used on GUID partitions and it does not work on MBR ones.

    Did a lot of other trickeries using fdisk but they all failed, mostly at boot time when I get chain booting error.

    What else can I do besides reinstalling everything from scratch in the new SATA drive?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi peu,

    Try look for Hatchery Clonetool, it can be good for your case.

    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id...etool-hatchery

    Or, try use a ./startupfiletool to create a bootsector in your HDD (same process to add a netkas's pc_efi on HDD)

    Best wishes ,

    That bad =((

    Well, you can try create a image from your HDD and restoring in Disk Utility (i think you have this).

    After that, you need a bootloader for it (Disk Utility don't copy hidder sectors). I recommend to you grab a netkas pc_efi and apply a bootsector using that.

    You can download that from IRC (server chat.osx86.hu port 6667) #leopard room.

    Now I have a simple question (I guess its simple) how do I change the default mach_kernel to the one Im using now: sleepkernel so it loads by default?

    Thanks

    Have two ways:

    #1:

    Edit your /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

    in:

    Code:
    <key>Kernel</key>
    <string>mach_kernel</string>
    choose for your kernel that you want, ex:

    Code:
    <key>Kernel</key>
    <string>mach_ToH.922</string>
    Or;

    In Terminal in sudo su mode type:

    Code:
    cd /
    cp mach_kernel mach_backup
    cp (some_kernel) mach_kernel
    Goodluck,

    I just did the second option, it works like a charm BUT now at boot time Darwin tries to load the second partition on the new SATA disk, when Leopard is in the 1st one. I use boot options and select the correct one, but I guess this also can be solved by editing some file. Do u know which one it is?

    Thanks!!

    Hi,

    Do in Terminal:

    Code:
    diskutil list
    Check partition number of 1# or smth other partition

    And in Darwin prompt do:

    (Example for first partition)

    Code:
    rd=disk0s1 -v
    (-v for verbose boot)

    Right, in this case you can use:

    rd=disk0s1 (for Leopard [NewLeopard]);
    rd=disk1s1 (for Windows C Viejo);
    rd=disk2s1 (for Windows System disk);

    Result for type in Darwin prompt:

    rd=diskXs1 -v

    x = 0 , 1 or 2
