Hi Andrew,

Can you be a bit more specific? What happens when you leave the *Vista* partition as active and use EasyBCD's OS X feature?

Souds like OS X didn't properly create the bootsector on the installation partition.

i can only get it to boot osx when my osx partition is active and when my osx dvd is in my drive

and when i was in paragon partition manager it had an option to unhide my osx partition but i cant apply that as it is just a trial version

Please don't double-post.

What this means is that the OS X bootloader was not installed to your drive; which means you didn't install OS X correctly.

This is a known problem with people using warez'd OS X install disks which don't even install it right.

NeoSmart Technologies doesn't provide support on installing OS X on a generic PC.

These install disks (like JaS) are highly modified to work on non-legit systems. These modifications often result in bugs like this - we can't help you getting that fixed. Different discs/releases have been modified in different ways and each have their own bugs. This particular issue is practically a JaS trademark.

No problem; don't worry about it.
Don't know if you know, but the forum you linked to (InsanelyMac) is a great OS X resource, with really helpful people.
