Another Boot 0:Error - Install problem
I have been trying a iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5 install for a couple of days now with no valid results and really need some help.
The install works great and the install log looks clean.. However, upon the initial restart it stops on a Boot0:Error screen.
I am trying to dual boot with Vista and have a partition set up via Gparted as a Fat32 primary drive with it being formatted HFS+ in the installer. After OS-X install and after the first non-restart and error message, I set the partition up with bcdedit to be active, display in the Vista bootloader and tried again with the same result.
My system is new and that old hardware kext issues shouldn't be an issue as they didn't show any problems in the install log as it was performing the install. The firewire driver struggled a bit, but was ok in the end.
My first question is, will this distro run on a Core 2 Quad system? I have researched the errors and there are only a couple of them mentioned in any thread and I can find no info on the quad as opposed to the duo.
My next question is, Instead of a distro, would I be better off with a Boot 132, Retail approach?
Any help is very appreciated. (Sys specs below)
