    Default [Hackintosh Support][Dual Booting][Tutorial/Help Needed]

    Dual Booting Vista and Leopard ?!

    Hi,
    I'm still unable to dual boot leopard and vista after many attempts.
    I have finally found a CD that boots which is Kalyway 10.5.1 using cpus=1 -v
    All others i have tried and have failed to even boot are iAtkos (v1,v2,v4) JaS 10.5.4 and Leo4All.
    Last time i tried to dual i messed up something and was unable to boot into Vista OR leopard but after hours of trying i successfully fixed it somehow.
    So does anybody know a proven tutorial for dual booting vista and leopard using kalyway.
    I've seen so many and they all do something differen't and do not want to risk following them and then it messes up.

    I've got an idea but not sure if it'll work.

    If i install Leopard on a seperate partition without running any commmands to change the mac partition to active, can i still boot into Vista and then use EasyBCD to add the x86 boot entry to my bootloader ?

    Lucky for you, I just went through dual boot hell and learned a lot.
    Here is a jest of it.
    1. Whoever installs last will control the boot menu.
    2. If OsX is installed last, OsX will create an entry in boot menu for you to boot into Vista - Nice.
    3. If Vista is installed last, you must copy CHAIN0 from the OsX dvd and create an entry using bcdedit utility. -- see dualboot on OsX86Projects.org
    4. If OsX is installed last, you must repair the Vista's startup problem using install DVD.
    5. It is almost impossible to change OsX's default boot option. Timeout is possible but you cannot change the default boot OS.

    But, since I like Vista's boot loader, I did following.
    1. Install Vista on Partition 1
    2. Install OsX on Partition 2
    3. Repair the Vista startup error using install DVD's rapair startup option
    4. Boot into Vista
    5. Copy Chain0 file from OsX DVD and edit boot options.

    Now, I can startup in Vista boot loader to boot into OsX. If I wish to use OsX boot loader, I just make OsX partition active.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info.
    For some reason my recovery disc always says "this operating cannot be restored with this recovery disc"
    Is it because i upgraded to SP1 ?
    So now i cant do the tutorials as i cant fix the boot.

    Default Need someone's input...

    What's up guys! So, I'm reading a bunch of posts putting the Mac OS onto a PC. Being on a budget, I will surely save a couple hundred bucks! I'm looking at PC's and was hoping you guys would give me some input. Here's the specs on the PC I've been looking at:
    System Configuration:

    Processor: Intel Quad Core Q9550 12000K cache 1333FSB 45nm CPU
    CPU Fan: Intel Heavy Duty Cooling Fan With Heat Sink
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G 1333FSB
    Memory: 8GB DDR2 667 PC5300 RAM
    Video: nVidia GeForce 8500GT 1GB 16xPCI Express video
    Hard drive: 500GB 7200RPM SATA 8MB Cache
    CD/DVD drive: 20x DVD +RW/-RW drive (DVD-burner drive)
    Sound: AC 97 Full duplex digital sound
    Network: 10/100/1000 RJ45 onboard network (Ethernet, cable or DSL)
    Ports: Six USB 2.0 ports,1 serial, 1 parallel, 1 microphone jack
    Case: Neon Mid Tower with front USB

    I want to primarily use the Mac OS for photography, but be able to duel boot if I install XP or Vista. Do you guys think this PC is good? Thanks!

    Sounds great! Do you think that the PC specs that I'm looking at is good enough?

    I don't know about this config. Try install and report back problems (if you had).

    Goodluck,

    HI,
    I am using currently triple boot : Debian Lenny with Mac Osx86 and WinXP 64 Pro
    Debian and Win work just fine, Mac OS need 3 boot managers to get to the system (but till tomorrow i stuck with upgrade to 10.5.5 whitch i did straight from Apple and i need to connect my drive to Mac to fix it)
    I think that u can boot all systems using proper boot manager mine is grub that loads linux and win, then i redirects to pc_efi_v80 for Mac (then its darvin boot that switches to Mac OSx86)
    I would try in your place installing only pc efi v80 or (my way) grub with-to pc efi v80 redirection (u can try doing it with USB bootable memory stick)
