hi everyone, i downloaded the jas 10.4.8 image and im attempting to get it running on my computer.
cpu is an amd athon 64 3500+ 939.
i took the following steps to install it:
1.made partition in windows with diskpart. with an id of af.
2. booted install cd, formatted with disk util and installed. everything went fine.
turnd comp back on, got grub errors so used super grub disk to restore grub to mbr. tried adding osx86 to grub using chain0 and chainloader+1 with no luck.
tried booting using xp bootloader using chain0....didnt work got a chain booting error.
i think the cause of the problem is that my extended or logical drives are before my primary lol...i cant fix this as id lose all my stuff n dnt hav another hdd 2 backup onto.
and finally heres the output to fdisk
