  1. I can dual boot if I want to boot Vista and Windows 7 fine, but when I want to go to use Snow Leopard for PC version, I get this error. I went to install OSX after creating a partition for it, then formatting it to what it recommended. After installation was completed sucessfully, it told me to restart my computer, when I went to the screen to pick Snow Leopard to boot, I get a Grub error screen. What is this? I couldn't get passed this error??

    Is this on a PC and not a Mac? Not many people do that here (if anyone) and its in a pretty gray area for legality. I hate to suggest other forums, but I think in this case it is necessary, the guys over at Insanely Mac forums can probably help you.

    I think the problem is in your windows. Is that an original one? You can try reinstalling it.

    You're correct, they have tips, tricks, and Tutorials.

    You might need to download and install X86Tools. Since the type of hardware the Mac OS uses, it's all built for compatibility, just about any other hardware will not work, and cause a Kernal Panic.... Choose your hardware carefully.
