I now know why it is like asking someone to have root canal, when I even mention big brother a_PP_el in the same sentence as anything other than using it on their over priced equipment.
They don't know it yet but will find out in the not so distant future that people are sick of buying their over priced new hardware every 2 years just to get their newer OS to run on it.
I have Linux Mint on 1 seperate HD with grub2 as the bootloader, and Snow leo on another drive with Chameleon for the bootloader. I googled around for dual booting and whether or not I should delete one loader or the other.
Well I read that for grub2 to find any other drives and mount them you have to run 'sudo update grub' providing you have grub 2. Then upon restart if your grub drive is set as the first drive, it will give you a choice of whether to load Linux Mint or Mac OS in 32 or 64 bit mode.
The problem with that is that when it loads Mac OS the screen resolution is all off, the screen is an inch smaller all around the monitor. I can't make any changes in the monitors settings, also it reads my CPU as a 4gHz cpu single core, not the Core2Quad 2.66GHZ that it is. In short the DSDT file is not being recognised when booted from grub. A custom DSDT was created when I instlaled chameleon. Now if I go into the BIOS and set up my Mac drive as the first in order it will load up Mac OS just fine and everything will work just fine, the only problem is when I do that...Chameleon will not recognize or load my linux mint drive, it wont give me a choice and when Mac OS loads it says there is an unredognizable disk.
I am sick to death of A_ppel and its mission to control the world in everything. Now they want to put a chip in your sneaker and tell you when you need a new pair, (I kid you not) God rest SJ he was a god man but never went this far.
I moved to Linuz when A_ppel decided to drop security updates for Snow Leo and refused to sell me Mountain Lion, saying my hardware was incompatible. Bull dung!
If anyone DOES have a way to dual boot both of my OSes and have them both work I would be so greatful to hear it, I am sick of hearing about eula agreements. I always paid for my OSes. And have been buying Mac products since Mac OS8, and a 6400, before the G3 came out. They should just sell their OS and do like Microsoft does if it is for a home builder you supply your own tech support for the OS. But they are not happy with just selling the OS they want you to pay for their over priced hardware too.
