    Hi.

    1) Install Vista (If you havn't already done so, if its already installed then you dont need to reinstall it)
    2) Make a new partition and install Leopard. (If you have not done this part, say and i'll explain it in more detail)
    3) Make sure vista is set as the 'active partion' using fdisk.
    4) Boot into vista and download and install EasyBCD.
    5)


    6)

    If you need me to go into more detail, don't be afraid to ask
    THIS GUIDE DOES NOT ALLOW DUAL BOOTING WITH XP & OSX86 ! IT ONLY WORKS IF ONE OF THE OS'S YOU WANT IS VISTA

    *** UPDATE:
    This method does not work on CD's that automatically set OSX86 as tHe active drive, once you add the new entry you get "Chain Booting Error". Avoid using this on iAtkos v5i. I've tested it and it DOES NOT WORK! ***

    Hi,

    i followed your steps and installed LeoV3 on my HP 8510w. Now if i select leopard in the boot menu i get the Darwin boot loader, and after the 10 seconds it goes back to the BCD boot loader. I recon i am missing a step but i can't seem to pinpoint it. Can you help me out here?

    Thanks

    Hi There.
    When you'r at the darwin prompt, hit F8 and choose leopard. If you leave it countdown it will, by default, go back to Vista.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks TJ2K7! You say that "ONLY WORKS IF ONE OF THE OS'S YOU WANT IS VISTA". What about if you have both Vista and XP installed, along with OSX, on separate primary partitions on the same disk. Should it also work then?

    In my case, Vista (default, partition 2) works, XP (partition 1) works, and the OSX (partition 3) entry I've created using EasyBCD fails with "boot1: error".

    Here's the "Overview" display of my EasyBCD settings:
    Code:
    There are a total of 3 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
    Bootloader Timeout: 10 seconds.
    Default OS: Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium
    
    Entry #1
    
    Name:  Windows XP
    BCD ID:  {ntldr}
    Drive:  D:\
    Bootloader Path:  \ntldr
    
    Entry #2
    
    Name:  Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium
    BCD ID:  {current}
    Drive:  C:\
    Bootloader Path:  \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    Windows Directory:  \Windows
    
    Entry #3
    
    Name:  Macintish OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
    BCD ID:  {583fb6f2-b5c9-11dd-93af-a34274538bb9}
    Drive:  D:\
    Bootloader Path:  \NST\nst_mac.mbr
    According to Vista, "D:" is the XP partition.
    System: Gateway GT5426E | Chipset: MCP61P, GeForce 6100 NVIDIA nForce 430
    Motherboard: ECS MCP61-P AM2 | CPU: AMD Athlon 64 Processor X2 6000+
    Disk (main): Hitachi 320 GB 7200 RPM SATA II | Disk (aux.): IDE 80 GB, USB 250 GB
    Video (main): nVidia GeForce 7600GT 256MB PCI-E | Memory: 4096 MB DDR2, 533 MHz, PC4200

    How do you make sure that vista is the "active" OS using fdisk? and is this method better than doing this through cmd prompt doing bcdedits? if after I installed osx I get a "boot0:error" what does that mean?


    UPDATE: Nevermind, I just fixed all this, except my OS X loads up to the gray apple loading screen and then gets a circle with a slash through it by the top of the apple. Bummer
