Problem setting up dual booting Morphos/Leopard
I am trying to set up a dual booting Macmini with Leopard and Morphos2.7 but am having trouble.
I am using this manual: http://dreamolers.binaryriot.org/dualboot.pdf
I followed it to the letter with a clean install of Leopard with the 3 partitions it said to do. But Leopard would not let me make a partition of less than 1gb even though i tried using a decimal place. But i don't mind about this.
I got all the way to Step 3 when i came across something. It says select the first partition which on the picture is the 64MB partition but on my screen the first partition is the 128Mb padding for osx. Maybe the manual needs to be updated? Anyway i did what it said and did the first partition. I followed the manual until i got to the Mounter. It says select DH0 and change the type to NFS but when i tried it would not let me instead forcing me to use NFS+. DF1 worked fine though. I kept on going formatting both DH0 and DH1 then clicked next only to find DH1 with no DH0 present on the iwizard install screen. Where is the Boot disk? I followed the instructions exactly
Today i tried the entire process from scratch doing a fresh install of Leopard. This time when the manual said to select the first partition which on the picture is the 64 MB but on mine is the 128MB padding i selected the 1 GB partition which was the second. Then i followed the instructions all the way through and ended up with the same result - no boot disk on the iwizard install screen
I don't get it. I thought maybe i did nothing wrong and maybe the manual just needed updating because i could see the boot disk icon on the Ambient screen. I didn't know what else to try so i clicked install. I rebooted after it told me it had successfully installed and held down ALT but it went straight into Leopard and it said "Unable to repair boot disk".
OK what have i done wrong
