Updating boot support partitions required mac
I have reboot, reformatted the drive back one parition using the disk util program and I still have the same proble...
Resizing (enlarging) Mac boot partition I'll preface this by saying I am not a Mac expert by any stretch of the imagination.
I've googled and searched the usual suspects, but I can't find it.
Are there any utility programs available that can expand the Mac's boot partition, or at least non-destructively add additional partitions to the drive to make the additional space usable? Several features will be missing at launch, including support for Mac OS X.
One program we found called "i Partition" seems like it may be able to do this. The post does not specify when, or if, Mac users will again be supported. Hi Group, Decided to reinstall OSX today on my MAC Book.
Now in the installer when I come to select the drive to install on I get the message "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume.
Mac OS X cannot start up from this volume." There is a red explaination mark on the drive.
Somewhere I saw a floppy-bootdisk which allowed you to boot off any other drive in the system, including a CD-ROM. No Support for USB Pocket Drive Booting: Boot Selector on Fixed Disk with XP Partition I have seen a lot of information (particularly on various implementations of GRUB) about how to get a boot selector program that helps to boot USB pocket drives where the machine BIOS will not support the boot, as in the case of my laptop.
