If, in the NeoGrub prompt/console, you type in rootnoverify (hd0,0) it should print back the filesystem.

So what's the text?
 
Booting 'find /NST/menu.lst

find--set-root --ignore-floppies /NST/menu.lst
(hd0,1)
Filesystem type is ntfs, partition type Ok?
configfile /NST/menu.lst
Turning on gate A20...Success.
starting cmain()... rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader+1
boot

I don't get it - there is no error message?

You say you're then put in a command prompt. If you manually typed in the same commands (from rootnoverify to boot) what happens?
 
no, it stops here. even if I wait for 15 minutes. I don't understand it at all. I think I did everything all right. Don't I have to install something on my Mac harddisk?

Addendum:

isn't there a way to quickly, tempraraly disable/disconnect a harddrive?

You can, from the BIOS. Just change the boot drive from drive 0 to drive 1.

But I don't get why this isn't working.... :/
 
the code you gave me on the previous page is the only I have to add?

Can the problem be that the mac osx harddrive isn't in a harddrive cable? I have put it in the cable of a cd-romdrive. I did that because there was no cable like the one in the harddrive, it is an old one. (btw. I can partition and see the drive in vista, and I have booted mac before, but is it possible that this is the reason why EasyBCD can't boot from there?

If it's on the CD-ROM cable, it won't be drive 0.
Try different numbers,.
