kalyway dual boot XP and OSX - Soooo close I can taste it!
First off, forgive me if I am revisiting something that has been covered, but my searches have come up for nil.
I have been trying to get my Gateway CX210 tablet to dual boot xp and osx. I have the kalyway 10.5.1 disc. Here is what I have done so far:
1: XP was pre-exisiting, so I used gparted to shrink the size of the partition and made a 50gb blank partition for osx. Rebooted, did a chkdisk on boot, and XP working fine.
2: Booted from OSX disc, waited, went to Disk Utilities, formated partition as mac extended journaled with mbr. named the drive "mac" (original, I know).
3: Installed OSX, with only vanilla_kernal, Vanilla_ACPI_fix, SSE2_System, and BOOT_efi_mbr checked under customize. Installation went fine.
Now for the problems:
a: upon rebooting after the install, the OSX install just constantly reboots. It happens too fast to see the exact details, but when I use the -v flag, what happens is that the darwin loader comes up, some text comes up then the screen clears, more text comes up in a smaller font, then after a paragraph of text, there is a line that says something like "mac framework successfully initialized", then one that says "using ###### buffer and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers", then it reboots. Wiith no flag, I get a brief view of the grey screen with the logo, then reboot. Tried re-installing with sse2 and boot_efi_mbr checked, same results.
b: When I hit any key for startup options, I get a listing of all my partitions, starting with the recovery partition, then my windows partition, then the mac, listed as such:
hd(0,2) Windows NTFS
Selecting mac takes me to the aforementioned reboot dance, but selecting the windows partition takes me to windows boot, where I am immediately informed that:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing
Please re-install a copy of the above file.
So my laptop is lying in a netherworld somewhere between a brick and a wicked cool laptop. I assume that I can use my recovery options to fix the windows problem, and since I have an image of the disk from before I started all of this, going back to square one is a time consuming possibility. I'd like to fix things, though, so any help would be appreciated. Here is the hardware listing in the laptop:
Core Duo 2ghz
ATI radeon x1400 pci express
Audio Chipset: SigmaTel 9250
Integrated Intel 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG 802.11a/b/g Mini PCI Express Card
DVD±R/±RW/CD-RW (8X Double Layer)
14" 1280x768 display
Integrated 7n1 card reader
Thanks in advance!
Well, after the flurry of responses, I decided to try Kalyway 10.5.2 after seeing what was included as far as drivers.
Installed over the 10.5.1, with the following options checked:
Kernals - kernel_9.2_sleep
Graphics_Drivers - Ati_Radeon - Ati_radeon_X1000Series
Audio_Drivers - Intel NVIDIA VIA ATI HD Audio Controller
Nvidia AC97 Audio
Realteck Sigmatel Conexant AnalogDevices HD Audio Codec
Networks_drivers - the defaults
Mobo_Chipsets - the defaults
Thirds_Applications - the defaults
SSE2_Jas1048_ACPI_APIC - selected
Patches - Default plus power management
After installing, I got a lot further in the boot, and it doesn't reboot constantly.
I will be trying to grab a shot of the verbose mode, but what is happening is that the system continues past where it was, far more text, and then goes to a black screen. It doesn't seem dead, as I see flickers of life on my hd light. I left it alone for the evening, and when I came back, the system was asleep. I hit the power button, and the system came back, but with no screen still.
Soooo close. I can smell the yummy goodness of OSX wafting across the room...
Got XP back up.
Based on what I saw on some other boards, I tried booting with an XP disc to get to the recovery console. The problem, though, is that no XP install was found by the console.
Same thing occured after switching the active partition to XP with gparted.
I took a closer look, and thought that the partitions might be counted starting at 1, kind of odd since the hd's are counted starting at 0. My CX210X came from the factory with a recovery partition, I wondered if the boot.ini was changed by the OSX install and was now somehow looking at the recovery partition for the xp install.
I used EditBINI off of the Ultimate Boot CD to edit my boot.ini file and changed the partition to 2 instead of 1, and there is my Windows back.
Now to solve the black screen on my osx side.

Success, to a point
While trying to catch what is causing it to stop loading, I saw flashes of something starting with "ATI"
Well, having nothing on the partition of value, I booted off the kalyway 10.5.2 disc, went to disk utilities and erased the partition, and re-installed, this time, with no display drivers and using the second kernal option.
And it worked.
Now to play with drivers and settings.
Sounds like your progressing pretty well there. I'm just about to start booting the OSX so your info is pretty helpful. Let us know how you're doing!
Good luck with your install! I hope you have the 10.5.2 version.

Yeah I was able to d/l the 10.5.2 version. So far, I had to bum a USB DVD Drive and its working to a degree. I get to the part where it asks, "Where do you want to install OS X" but for some reason it doesn't show me my HD. How's yours coming along?

If it isn't seeing the hd, remember to:
a: create a partition on the drive to make a mac drive. I used gparted, a linux boot disc to shrink my main partition and then created an extended partition in the blank area,
b: leave the partition blank, don't format it for fat 32, hfs or anything.
c: when you get to the installer, use the disc utility command to find the partition, format it for mac os journaled, and use mbr.
d: when installing, chose the partition and go.
Ahh... thanks for the help. Well I too took a little break, but I posted this same question on a other thread. LoL.

I click continue and the "Install Summary" comes up. I click "customize," check mark the following: Vanilla Kernal 9.2.2 and Third Party Drivers. I click "done" and then "install."
It then goes through the process of checking the installation DVD, but stops and says " There was a problem reading your disc" and the install fails."
I go through the whole boot up and then it says "Verifying DMI Pool Data....... Missing operating system."
Am I missing a step? Maybe I should re-burn the CD I was using?
Grrrrr going nuts trying to get my Tablet M285 (cx200) to work
On the 3rd install now-- gave up on Vanilla and am now trying kernel 9.2 sidestep. Is it safe to assume that I can't get the x1400 working either?
Got 10.2.5 loaded perfectly on a GM6478 desktop and a Sony Vaio AR 630 e laptop. Any updates on the configuration you get on your tablet would be great!
