Installed OS X, then Win 7. Can't boot back to OS X with EasyBCD


New Member
I installed OS X (Snow Leopard) on my Dell Mini 9, and then Windows 7. The partition layout is:

GPT partition (created by the OS X install)
NTFS (Win7)

Using EasyBCD 2.0 B65, I added an entry for "Mac OS" using the defaults. When I boot and select this, some text very quickly flashes on the screen and then the system reboots.

I managed to take a video of the flashed text, though it is not clear. It looks something like this:

Try (hda0,0) [something I can't make out - three lower case characters, a dash and then MS?]: skip
Try (hda0,1) NTFS5 (not sure about the 5)

and then it reboots. It does not appear to see the third partition.

What do I need to do to get OS X to boot again? I can boot Win7 no problem. Thanks.

Hi Holmes, welcome to NST.
Are you using the latest EasyBCD 2.0 build?
If not, then please download, install, and then use it to delete and re-add the OS X entry.
There is more support for OS X in this build than 1.7x.

Sorry for that. I guess I missed that.
I skimmed your post, instead of reading it.

Since you're already using the latest build, please post the contents of the EasyBCD View Settings->Advanced(debug) mode.

Interesting. Thanks for your feedback, we're still working on the OS X support in 2.0 beta.
