Can't boot XP - 07-27-2010, 04:35 AM
I reinstalled everything on my 10v tonight to set it up for dual boot: Installed XP on a 50BG partition, updated it, created a primary partition for OSX, installed, updated to 10.6.4, restored from time-machine backup. All worked great and OS-X runs perfectly as it did before.
But when I reboot and hold 'shift' I only see my OSX partition. The XP volume isn't there an an option. Is there a way to find it?

Did you ever find a solution? I'm in the same situation.

Screen brightness - 08-05-2010, 05:03 AM
Just realized that I cannot adjust the screen brightness on the 10v. Function keys don't have any effect and the Displays Preference screen does not show a slider for screen brightness. Is there a keyboard command? I looked for one but did not find it. Or is there some other method to enable the dimming and brightness control?

Hi there, I'm close but no cigar!
I've followed the instructions on the first page of this thread but the installer freezes after I choose the language.
I'm pretty sure it's to do with the OS install file as, when I removed the file the installer loaded but obviously wouldn't let me install onto my dual boot MBR hard drive. I've followed the file path to the letter and used the file from the link on page 1 of this thread.
I've got a retail version of 10.6.3, is there a different 'OS install' file for SL?
Frustratingly close and any help would be gratefully received!

Can someone please help I have followed the step above and it just does not work! Can someone please help?
After partioning the drive, I insert my usb with OS X everthing works until I run the disk utility it wont let me format the partition for "GUID" unless I reformat the entire drive which erases the Xp partion.
