    Default The Very common Chain Booting Error

    Where to start.

    Yes I'm getting that Chain Booting Error!

    I have been at this for three days straight now with no luck.

    First My Specs:
    Intel Core 2 Dual Core 6600 2.40Ghz
    3 Megs Ram
    Asus P5B delux MB
    Primary HHD 400 Gigs with Vista Home Prem
    Second HDD 40
    G-Force 8800gt Video Card

    OSX Build
    iATKOS V1.0i (Mac OS X86 Leopard 10.5.1 9B18 Installer)

    Install:
    Every thing went well with the install
    I installed on my second HHD



    Followed these instructions for several attempts to install with no luck.
    Hack Attack : Dual Boot Leopard and Windows Vista | dailyApps

    Darwin Boot Loader


    Are these following selections OK?


    Looks Like it installed ok


    Second last step before I boot into vista


    Booted into Vista to perform
    Code:
    bcdedit /copy {current} /d “Mac OS X”
    bcdedit /enum active
    bcdedit /set {GUID} PATH \chain0
    bcdedit /copy {current} /d “Mac OS X” DID NOT WORK other two did

    Im at a loss to what to try next, can anyone with a smidgen more brain power than me see any step I missed.


    I also tried EasyBCD
    No Joy there either


    Regards...

    Question

    I'm having issues too. I've looked all over the internet and have also looked at the link above, but don't seem to find any answers. My big problem is that I am getting a persistent "chain booting error" message after installation and updating the boot record with bcdedit. The boot just stops there and does nothing else. Following what I read, here's what I've done:

    1) Downloaded the "JaS OSx86 10.5.4 Client Server Intel SSE2 SSE3" iso file and burned to cd.
    2) Have Vista installed on a SSE2 quad core system with two 500G drives, so I took the second drive (non-vista) and made it inactive in the Disk Management tool.
    3) Booted with the JaS cd, and hit F8 to get to the boot: prompt. Then entered -v -f on the command line and hit enter. I had to hit -f because -v started and then just hung at some point along the way.
    4) The Mac Installer started up and I went to the Disk Utility, chose the available disk, erased it formatting as Mac OS Extended (HFS+), exited the utility, and then chose that disk and completed the installation. The installation went without any errors, and then told me that I had to reboot to complete.
    5) Rebooting went back to Vista. Downloaded a chain0 file and put it into c:\. Then at first I tried using EasyBCD to add the mac startup, but I got "chain booting error" on rebooting and choosing the mac osx. Then I went back to Vista, deleted that entry in EasyBCD, and tried what I read online:
    - Opened a command window as administrator and typed the following
    - bcdedit /copy {current} /d "Mac OS X" (just as it is written)
    - bcdedit /enum active
    - bcdedit /set {GUID} PATH \chain0 (where {GUID} was the guid for mac os x from the list given)
    This all seemed to work fine. The I rebooted and again chose mac os x and still have a "chain booting error" message and it just sits there.

    I tried going back to the JaS install cd and typing -s at the boot: prompt, then I got into fdisk /dev/rdisk1 (since the mac disk is the second one) and types flag 1, then write, then exit. Rebooted and it didn't help.

    I am at my wits end at this point. I am really not at all sure why this is not working. Everything I've read online says that my steps are correct. If anyone can give me help here so that I can get this working I would be very grateful.

    Thanks...

    Default My Fix

    Hi - I fixed this by simply running the Netbook Installer again once I had copied over my OS X with Super Duper to the Mac formatted hard disk. Then i could select it in easy BCD on startup and i didnt get the chain booting error
