Default No Dual Boot; need help debugging - 07-03-2012, 08:31 PM

I thought I followed this guide in detail. After getting to the last step of the guide, I booted successfully into SL 10.6.3 and saw no problems with the OSX side of things.

When I shut down, then power up, I do not get an image of a disk where I can press RETURN to select a boot option. Instead it proceeds directly to OSX every time.

If I boot from my USB drive, I do get boot options: the USB drive and my Dell mini Mac partition.

So, it appears that Chameleon doesn't think my XP partition is bootable anymore.

I've run NBI 0.8.4 RC1 several times with no change in results.

I started out with XP in a 30GB partition; the rest of the disk was the partition of OSX. I'm using a retail version of 10.6.3.

I'm new at this. Can someone suggest some initial steps for me to determine what happened?

Dell mini 10v (1011), A06 Bios, 160GB HD.
