Dual Boot OSX XP Im Very Close!EDIT://SUCCESS! - 03-22-2009, 04:31 PM
First off, thanks for all the geniuses here on the forums for even making this all possible. U guys are my heroes!
so followed the woohooo tutorial all the way up to where he manually configured the efi partition. which i could not do because the filenames in the new efi discs are all different.
woooohoooooo-dual-booting-os-x-&-xp-on-the-runcore%C7%83-t1699s30.html <-- the woohoo tutorial.
I have a 32GB SSD configured as follows :
partition 1 = EFI 200 MB HFS+
partition2 = OSX hfs+ 15gb
Partition3 = WinXP 14gb fat32
when I boot xp boots by default.
if i boot from boot132 v 8.01 cd, and choose option 80 (my SSD) and choose partition 1 (my EFI) I get the list of partitions, and can choose either winxp, or osx either OS loads just fine.
I also tried to set up my winxp boot.ini and put entries in for the efi and OSX partitions:
But those just cause the mini to reb ootimmediatly
Possible i need to point the boot.ini to a folder or file? like this "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\osxloder. pkg or something="OSX" ??
So in short its like my mini just automatically boots to partition 3 (winxp) rather than partition 1(efi) If i could get the dang thing to boot to partition 1 (efi) by default I think im all set. Maybe i just need to mark partition 1 as active or something??? wouldn't THAT be nice.
I would REALLY apreciate any help anyone can give as i have spent a lot of hours on this wonderful lil mini9.
