Re: Crunchgang Waldorf Imac 5,1 Intel Core2 Duo (OSX 10.6 SL) via USB

Actually since trying that USB created using the method above and attempting to reboot into OSX the mac no longer finds OSX. So a total install of crunchbang coming up.

IF I can get it to load the USB install. So back to my initial question: Is it possible to install GRUB onto both partitions of the USB as described using the Puppy Linux method in the OP ?

Error: Not Found returned from legacy loader
Error: Not Found from LocateDevicePath
Error: Load Error while (re)opening our installation volume

The firmware refused to boot from the selected volume. Note that external hard drives are not well supported by Apple's firmware for legacy OS booting.

Re: Crunchgang Waldorf Imac 5,1 Intel Core2 Duo (OSX 10.6 SL) via USB

Yeah it's certainly 'possible' but most people install from the live CD. I am yet to find someone running 10.6 and being successful via usb.

I'm trying a few further things on the imac, namely single user mode and verbose mode:

verbose mode (pressing cmd/super v on startup) printed this:

Running fsck on the boot volume...
	Executing fsck_hfs (version diskdev_cmds-491.6.3).
** Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.
** Checking extents overflow file.
** Checking catclog file.
	Keys out of order
(4, 490)
** Rebuilding catalog B-tree.
[Bluetooth::CSRHIDTransition] transition complete.
CSRUSBBluetoothHCIController::setupHardware super returned 0
AppleYukon2: Marvell Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053 Singleport Copper SA
AppleYukon2: RxRingSize <= 1024, TxRingSize 256, RX_MAX_LE 1024, TX_MAX_LE 768, ST_MAX_LE 3328
** The volume OSX could not be repaired.
Launchctl: Please convert the following to launchcd: /etc/mach_init.d/dashboardadvisoryd.plist
launch_msg(): Socket is not connected
DNSServiceRegister("afpovertcp"): -65563
DNSServiceRegister("afpovertcp"): -65563
DNSServiceRegister("smb"): -65563
launch_msg(): Socket is not connected

and single user mode (pressing cmd/super s on startup) gets me to the command line as root#

Hmmm. To what extent can I work as root?.. time will tell

Re: Crunchgang Waldorf Imac 5,1 Intel Core2 Duo (OSX 10.6 SL) via USB

I should said 'to be continued' or similar..  I'd left this to gather dust until this week when I ordered a CD of Crunchbang 11 off a guy on Ebay. Installs fine.. but now it can't find my harddrive. So I may need to see if I can reverse my edits done with all that refind malarky.
