Have my Mini 9 with Win 7 beta, OSX 10.5.8 and DellEFI1.25a. OSX running fine but I wanted to upgrade to the Win 7 release. I tried but then my OSX wouldn't boot. I'm guessing it doesn't like DellEFI. So I've been try to transition DellEFI to NetbootInstaller.

I did all the above, including removing .dellEFI and /Extras and running in Safe Mode. But when booting OSX, I get a circle w/ a line through it. I reboot w/ '-x -v' and it gets all the way to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment: init complete. Then I get 'Still waiting for root device' and it just keeps repeating.

Any way around this? I've got a well established OSX partition w/ programs and the like and I've been trying to avoid a full reinstall.

I tried to be clever and just install Win 7 and it worked. But then when I tried to run OSX, Chameleon was gone and I couldn't get into OSX.
