Default 3 partiton problems - 09-29-2009, 09:22 PM

i formatted my 160 gb hdd with 3 partions in os-x.

partion 1: 1 gb (raw, i believe) for dellefi

partion 2; 75.5 gb (GUID) for os-x

partion 3: 75.5 gb (Fat, then NFTS) for win7

installed os-x, no issues, into partion 2, will boot up with dellefi bootlaoder on usb stick

installed windows7 into partion 3, no problems, boots up immediately when you turn on dell mini10v

now, my problem.....

how do i get to the first partion to install chameleon of dell efi bootloader so when i turn on dell mini10v i get choice of operating systems?

do you need to access thru os-x?

i tried cmd, disk part on win7, but it only shows the win7 partion (to me this makes sense, as it only see's partion 3 with windows 7 installed.

i have no clue how to get into the first partion to install dellefi... or what format it should be...fat, guid, ect.

any help/advice/suggestions appreciated, as i am out of ideas....

thanks, appreciate any help and your time....

i think you have to change your main boot partition back to the osx partition. then re-run the chameleon program.

try following the info on post #100 http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...tml#post105138
