    Default BOOT-123 to load DMG or How to make portable disk into bootable osx86

    BOOT-123 as we all know, is a way to boot from retail DVD to install Leopard.

    anyone know how to get it to access a DMG image file on NTFS hard disk partition??
    OR
    how to make a whole portable disk into a bootable (by Boot123) osx86 install disk?

    i would like to install Snow Leopard because it's the only one that supports my graphics card. but i don't have a dual layer DVD.

    not sure I understand the question but to access an NTFS partition, you need to use NTFS-3G.
    Boot-132 is just a bootable CD that you use to boot up first then swap with retail LEO DVD.
    You need to format the partition as GUID.
    After install, you can install chameleon bootloader if you wish.

    sorry my question wasn't very clear.

    i would like to try to install Snow Leopard beta using the Boot-123. because boot-123 have the ability to read snow leopard DVD, i was wondering whether it is possible to have it mount a DMG file OR have it boot from a Mac install partition to install snow leopard.

    thank you for the guide, they are very helpful in what to do after installing using retail DVD. but my question is about without a retail DVD. (because im tring to get snow leopard working)

    Yes is possible modify a boot-132 to install Snow Leopard. Use a second HDD to restore/install system to destiny HDD.

    did you say modify?

    what modification is needed?

    i thought i'd just "Restore" using this method to my external eSATA disk. then select 84 in Boot-123 (got 3 internal disks) to initialise boot from the eSATA device.

    EDIT: after selecting to boot the eSATA drive, it just hangs. so my guess is that Boot-123 doesn't support snow leopard at all.
