Boot from APM drives
Authored by: aqsalter on Feb 22, '06 05:35:27PM

If we can boot from APM external drives, does this mean that we can boot from the internal drive APM?
Isn't that a major hold up in the dual-boot problem?

Boot from APM drives

Heh that was what I tried after doing the iPod and FW boot trick;-)

Yep you can. Intel iMacs will boot from their internal drives if they're formatted with APM partitioning schemes rather than GPT. So EFI DOES support booting from both partition maps. Had to as the Install DVD you get is APM formatted
