10.4: Use a free utility to easily boot into Windows
Authored by: jaguarcy on Jul 18, '07 09:44:48AM
I should really do a bit more homework before posting comments...

I found the answer to my last question, which is BootChamp does NOT change the startup volume... good.

I also think I've found the reason my Windows partition isn't being detected... MacFuse and NTFS-3G?

$ /Applications/BootChamp.app/Contents/MacOS/BootChamp --verbose
2007-07-18 19:42:26.871 BootChamp[3439] Unsupported? hfs
2007-07-18 19:42:26.871 BootChamp[3439] Unsupported? devfs
2007-07-18 19:42:26.871 BootChamp[3439] Unsupported? hfs

The second hfs (or maybe the first, no way of knowing), I assume is my FileVault dir. Which leaves only my Windows partition... devfs??

BootChamp's only been tested on NTFS volumes, and they have to be mounted when the app runs in order for the app to see them.

Well, the drive IS formatted NTFS, and I did try running it while the drive was formatted... I'm not sure as to why the report says 'devfs', maybe it's because of ntfs-3g and macfuse?
