I have two boot drives, one Tiger and one Lep. My Tiger boot drive is FAST when booting up or logging on to the net. My Lep. partition boots up slow and is slow on the net. I did a test, bypassing my airport and the dia. box states, "Built-in Ethernet has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect."
Network settings, I admit are my weak point, however, things work fine with airport and Tiger. Any suggestions?
Depending on the amount of RAM that you have, you may need to add RAM. If you have less than 2GB, you should upgrade the RAM. The other issue could be memory in general since you're running both systems and obviously have a smaller drive than would be available if you were only running one. I would remove the partitions and use one boot drive to see if that makes any difference. Just back your files up first.

Mostly brand new computers after a few months of using, they are getting slow, right. The big reasons why is the performance of the CPU and how fast it is, is not match with the quantity of the hard drive. Let's say, 1Ghz CPU and your HDD is 180 Gb, that's too much long to read by the CPU. Computers when booting up, it only read the C: not all the drives quantity, only to detect. So, I suggest to partition your HDD by matching your CPU. Ex. CPU-1Ghz. - HDD- 180Gb. Partition: C:=60Gb D:=60Gb E:=60Gb
When configuring a Multi-boot configuration using Windows operating systems, you need to install Windows Versions oldest to newest on separate partitions. In doing so, Windows 7 is going to be installed to Drive D: or E: or such. In all previous versions of Windows, if you have a multi-boot configuration, the drive letter for that OS is always the same as the drive where it was installed.
Windows 7 does things a bit differently. EXAMPLE: I have 3 partitions on my hard drive. C:, D: and E:. XP on C: Vista on D: Windows 7 on E: When I boot to XP, the boot drive letter is C: When I boot to Vista, the boot drive letter is D: (Simple) Well, I learned the hard way that when you boot to Windows 7 from a partition other than C:, it will show the boot drive as C: in Windows 7 (It swaps drive letters with the boot drive and C: transparently). When you boot to the other partitons, the drive letters are as they should be and the change is only effective while booted to the Windows 7 Partition.
place XP CD into your CD Drive that is set to boot first in your Bios. And reboot, When prompted (usually one of first things) press any key to boot from CD" do that.... once you get to the screen that loads press ENTER to "set up XP now" Then press F8 for the user agreement The next page will show your previous installs. choose yours.. Select "Install a Fresh Copy of XP without repairing" the next page will show some options with your drives and partitions listed below. from there you want to select the partition with your current XP install, Then smash "D" on your keyboard to delete the partition (this is where all data is lost on the drive)! you will need to press Enter on the next page to confirm. and another confirmation press L next you will see your drive press C to create an new partition next
you can just hit Enter to create partition the full size of your drive.
(suggested) or you can change the size and have multiple partitions.) once you have created the partition press Enter to install windows will tell you the drive is not formatted and will offer you some choices... choose NTFS Quick or Slow ( I use slow on smaller drives and quick on the big ones.)
If you have the original XP installation disk with SP2 just install it in your primary CD drive and then boot from the CD when prompted. You may have to enter your setup to change the boot sequence if your computer doesn't boot from the CD. I'd have to know what computer manufacturer and model to tell you how to enter setup, but assuming you have a legal version of Win XP SP2, it's as simple as booting from the disk, letting windows install the temporary files and it will then identify your drive and whether there are any partitions. At that point you select the partition if one is shown or it will tell you the disk size and that there currently is no partition and ask you if you want to create one. folow the prompts until you get to the format option. You can select either normal or fast NTSF format and let the installation process complete. You'll have to enter the key and do some other user input required things like your time zone etc, but that's about it.
Usually, the beach ball indicates low memory, but it can also indicate lots of disk retries.
First stop would be Disk Utility, to see what the SMART status for the drive is If it shows bad, that's definitely your problem - if it doesn't show bad, it's still inconclusive.
You can also look for disk retries in the Console log, but that requires knowing precisely when the symptoms were happening, and is pretty boredom-intensive.
I'd boot this machine off an external OS drive and see if it showed the same symptoms. If yes, I'd look at testing the memory. If no, I'd replace the hard drive.
Permissions aren't going to be the problem if you've freshly reinstalled the system.
Its GRand Unified Bootloader used in Linux OS. Normally you get this error when GRUB is not able recognise the partition from which you are trying to boot the system. Make sure the boot partition on your system is recognisable by GRUB (such as EXT3).
You can try to restore the GRUB using the LIVE CD
Boot From Live CD
Open Terminal Window
type >sudo grub
then type : find /boot/grub/stage1
you'll get something like: (hd0, 1)
then type : >root (hd0, 1)
type: > setup (hd0)
Remove the Live CD and reboot the system.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
Try booting into single user mode by pressing Command+S while booting. You should then be at a prompt. Type in:
and press Return. Let it run and see if it corrects any filesystem issues, then reboot when it's done.
I think the hard drive has no operating system on it or the MBR :Master Boot Record" is corrupt. Try downloading "Hirens Boot CD" and burn to cd and boot from it. It has a lot of useful Utilities on it for restoring MBR and formatting and partitioning
The Clamshell iBook 366 doesn't officially support Tiger, but can usually be installed using 'XPostFacto'. (You can get it here http://eshop.macsales.com/OSXCenter/XPostFacto/ It's open source software but you still might find some aspects of Tiger don't work.
