Boot two OSX's
Authored by: bumper314 on Mar 26, '07 05:42:21PM

I'm trying to use this hint to boot two different installations of OS X Tiger, without much luck.

Scenario 1) Two installs are on different partitions.
If I hibernate one installation then try to boot into the other (by holding down the option key during power up and selecting the second installation) it looks like it's going to boot (I see the grey screen with the apple logo), but then just resumes the hibernated partition.

Scenario 2) Two installs are on different physical drives.
If I hibernate one installation then try to boot into the other, I do succeed in booting, but when I go back to the first installation, it does a cold boot (doesn't restore the hibernated state).

Anyone else try either of these scenarios with success?
