    Unhappy Neogrub + Efi_pc = no joy?

    I wanted to have multiboot capability on my system, as I have to enter to bios each time I want to swap systems.
    I heard from some user that using neogrub with EasyBCE from vista, it was posible to use the pc_efi exactly the same as grub for linux.
    I tried, but neogrub cannot mount the partition, no mather what I put on menu.lst
    This is my config:

    (hd0,0) -> Leopard 10.5.1 (with efi_pc already installed on boot using startupfiletool)
    (hd1,0) -> Vista
    (hd1,1) -> XP
    (hd1,2) -> Tiger
    (hd1,3) -> Blank Partition for storage (ntfs)
    (hd1,5) -> Hfs+ for time machine

    I tried this on menu.lst and directly in the console;

    Title Leopard
    kernel (hd0,0)/boot/boot_v5

    Result = cannot mount partition (19)

    Title Tiger
    kernel (hd1,2)/boot/boot_v5

    Result = cannot mount partition (19)

    Tried with root (hdx,x) and got the same error

    Needless to say that I have the boot_v5 on the root of both drives

    Any indeas??

    Thanks

    I guess neogrub doesn't know hfs+
    place boot_v5 to fat32/ntfs partition

    netkas, thanks for your info.
    Now it boots, but partially. I mean, Leopard boots wich is on a standalone drive with an already installed pc_efi, in the case of boot_v5 is the drive 0x81.
    If I try to boot tiger from 0x80, always boots into the vista bootloader.
    How can I get to boot tiger if vista bootloader is on top of it?
    Maintaining vista bootloader aswell of course.

    Thanks!!
