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

#1
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)
HFS (OS X)

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 [thread=642]latest EasyBCD 2.0 build[/thread]?
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.
