    That might be true for easybcd to detect osx. I have mac osx installed in a primary second partition on my laptop (first primary partition is xp) and osx boots just fine as default OS. To boot xp i only have to press F8 at boot and choose xp from teh darwin menu. Of course I don't have vista on...

    Maybe when/if I get a new computer (that won't be a mac; hmm slim chance). vista is an elephant which I don't want on my puter. Thank you!

    hey, we obviously don't speak the same language. I did not format any disk from acronis. I issued the commands you told me from the windows xp disk. that rewrote the mbr on the wrong disk. Simply because it was plugged in and the internal hd was not recognized. However when i booted from the...

    I am afraid those commands won't help me since the osx partition is set as primary/active and fdisk and i suspect diskpart in nt based systems won't see my partitions although they are there. Booting from a Gpart disk it shows my disk as unallocated. I have an acronis boot disk at home which i...

    That's how it ended in the internal HD in the first place. Unfortunately i need xp for work. i need to use lots of software that are not developed for mac. Anyway I didn't quite do what I said unfortunately, to remove vista and osx. So, I managed to screw up my system again. This time I setup...

    I will remove vista as well. It's too hardware demanding. there is no decent video driver for my radeon 9000 mobility card either. ATI has no plans to make a driver for my card for vista. It looks nice but I guess i would need a newer puter to run it well.

    It is gone. Nevermind. I deleted the OSX partition. It just didn't work and don't have time to waste with this anymore. I have osx on an external hardrive and that boots fine with no BCD and other vista crap. Thanks anyway

    easybcd is till awesome because at least i can restore my mbr to xp if i want to get rid of vista. i assume microsoft wouldn't do that automatically unless you upgraded windows to vista from xp and then unintall vista. If you have two oses as i do if you wipe out vista you can't boot xp. So...

    yes you can run it on a PC and before i installed vista everything was running smooothly. Puter would boot by default into osx. if i wanted xp i could press F8 at boot to choose xp from teh darwin bootloader. with vista bootloader I only have two choices(xp and vista) and easybcd did not help.

    I uninstalled from vista and from xp. I booted in xp and reinstalled it only there. Mac os x still doesn't boot. Nevermind. I guess I cannot have both vista and macosx. Thank you anyway. I told you a couple posts above that I had NST on both partitions. It wasn;t taht the problem. The mbr file...

    I am sorry I don't understand your letter assignments. The "boot" folder is on xp partition and NST is on both as I mentioned (both xp and vista partition). From vista, when I run ebcd vista is c" (obviously any booted microsoft is C). Xp partition is D:. Mac os does not have a letter and does...

    Btw, I appreciate a lot your help and the time you put into this. i appreciate also the fact that you made a software which you give for free. I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to name teh partitions as they are in windows or grub, so that there is no confusion when you set Oses. letters are...

However OSX partition botts fine using a system disk as I mentioned and checked...

    What is vista dl? I installed easy bcd in xp (have vista on a logical partition) and everything was working fine before easybcd. I wanted to be able to boot osx too (installed already). From easy bcd in xp in rewrote mbr after i added mac os x and now can't boot anything. How can I fix this?
