2x MBR with WinXP and Snow Leopard on Dellmini9 - 12-15-2009, 10:05 AM
after 24 hours of devastating research for guides how to install snow leopard and winxp on a dell mini 9 I finally got both operating systems to work. But I wouldnt be opening another thread, if I hadn't a problem. So here's the clou: I can't get the chamelon bootloader to load before WinXp is starting.
I used the MBR-Multinoot method as described in merklots Guides: Advanced 2: Multi-Boot Configuration | Guides | OS X | mechdrew
This means that both os are functional but I could only boot into snow leopard when I insert the usb installation key and chose it from the menue there.
I already installed the netbookinstaller a thousands times to the correct partition but it is useless.
Since it isn't a GUID-Structure I would guess that only one of the mbr can be active at once. How do I get a working bootloader.
Im using: Dellmini 9 (16 gb Stantec), Snow Leopard (10.6.2), WinXp (SP3 Slimmed down) and Netbookinstaller RC4.
I would apreciate your help.
