OSX

#1
Hi everyone,
I've tried adding an entry to my OSX installation which I can boot from if I use F12 during post.
If I try using the entry I end up with the error,

Calling chainbooter
Bootmgr is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart.


Now, during the boot process there is a point at which it says

Press any key (Where is the any key?) within 2 seconds for options.
If I then type in "81" it boots fine.
I have noticed during the very quick screens that come up it is trying to boot "80".
What can I do to change the "80" to "81".

Thanks

No,Build 55,I'll see if I can find it,I had quite a job finding 55.

Addendum:

OK,build 60 made no difference.
The problem is quite clear.
After selecting the OSX entry there is a screen that clearly states,

Boot device 0x80

It then gives me 2 seconds to change the boot device.
If I change the boot device to 81 it carries on and boots OSX fine.
I need to know how to make the boot loader boot 0x81 on its own.

Re-add, checking the "Use custom drive number" box and providing 81 for the number on the Mac tab thats on the Add/Remove entries page.

The only numbers I have to choose from are 0 - 9.
The 81 I need to enter is a HEX number.
I noticed I have 10 partitions which would corrispond to the numbers 0 - 9 and so I tried using both 5 (counting form 0) and 6 (counting from 1) but no luck.
The problem is it is looking for the file to boot on drive 80 not 81.

I have already made it very clear that this is a known issue in the current builds of EasyBCD 2.0 and I'm working on a solution. Complaining about it won't solve it any sooner.

keinerdoof, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies. Hang in there, we're hoping to address the problem soon.

Sorry,I didn't know it is a known issue.
My old pc was multibooting fine with the old bcd so I haven't been keeping up with the posts.
I have just come back to bcd because I have built a new pc.
Thanks for all the work you are doing.
