    Default [iATKOS] Chain Boot Error

    Alright guys... I just finished installing iATKOS and everything seemed to run perfectly. I installed this on my HP dv8000t laptop. The laptop has 2 hard drives; 1 has my Vista install and the 2nd is just for backups and such. I partitioned the 2nd hard drive with 20 gigs of space for the OS X install.

    The install went ok, I'm able to boot into OSX if I keep the iATKOS disc in, press F8 and then type in rd=disk1s2 (found from someone elses help queston)...

    I've been following this how-to: http://inihilist.wordpress.com/2008/...nd-fool-proof/

    From what their FAQ says... it means I don't have the darwin bootloader installed correctly. So I go back to the install process where you would install the bootloader and the instructions say:

    12. Now close this disk utility and click on Utilities->Darwin_Boot

    13. Click on the terminal, to activate the cursor and type Y.

    14. When it asks for disk no press 1

    15. When it asked for partition no press x+1

    Note: x is the partition no in windows and x+1 is that in MAC OS. So if it was Partition 3 in windows and disk0s4 in MAC OS then you should type 4

    16. Click Y and Y. If its succesful, you will get a message saying so.. So and so blocks copied blah blah etc. and Process completed at the end.

    17. Close this window and then close the terminal.
    I guess my question is... How does this work since I'm running off 2 hard drives... or doesn't that matter? The partition is the 2nd one on the disc, which would be 1 for Windows and then 2 for OS X. When I try that, I get an error message and it doesn't seem to copy correctly.

    Any help?

    I did a fresh install and used EasyBCD. Boots up perfectly. Just a few minor issues to sort out now.

    preface : doing a triple boot VIsta, ubuntu, and OSx86

    Ok, I am having a "chain booting error" I also using EasyBCD, what i got is vista installed works great, boots into ubuntu just fine, and loaded os x Aitkos v1.0i in the designated partition installed just fine.

    Boot into vista choose the mac entry and apply it and reboot , choose the mac entry and that's when I get the error.

    any help is much appreciated.
