2.0 Beta 78 Mac EFI: Defaults to HD0,0 and fails. My mac partition is #6?

#1
[Excuse my name, I didn't grow up until now :smile: ]

I install the Mac EFI Entry and I tried even the custom drive numbers and it still tries loading HD(0,0): NTFS -- This is message is shown for a quick second and it loads GRUB prompt. :x

Please have a look.


How to fix?

I was just about to comment on your name but consider yourself excused :smile:

OS X isn't supported in cases where it comes *after* a logical partition.

You can have 4 primaries or 3 primaries and an extended.
You can't have what your screenshot shows.
There was a Vista DM bug (presumably propogated into W7) that incorrectly displays complex partition layouts.
Have you had a look at the layout with another partition manager ?

Nice catch, Terry! I was referring to a limitation of the OS X chainloader, but you pointed out a more important issue...

OK, OS X is on a logical partition - unsupported configuration, it needs to be installed to a primary partition.

I do have to mention, until Beta 64, it worked fine (for Leopard).

However, When I add entry, it loads darwin correctly and gets stuck on "Loading darwin/x86..." :x

Anything changed in latest builds?

Yes. OS X support is partially broken in the latest builds, but an existing setup should have remained working.
