    Please Help With GRUB


    Hello
    could you guys please help me?
    I have windows xp sp2 and I created 25 gigs of unformatted space on which I want to install MAC OSX( Yes I have a working version for Intel)

    Now previous time when I installed MAC I couldn't boot into windows anymore...

    So I'd like to use grub, so I can boot both in windows and mac.

    thanks!

    I don't know if GRUB is able to work with just XP and OS X, GRUB need a controlling partition in a file system it supports (like ext3) and I don't believe HFS+ is supported (because if you want to dual boot Linux and OS X you need to chainload OS X)

    And I don't know why you came and posted in a Linux forum??

    Not sure if you already tried this, but here is a link about boot camp.
