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.

1. insert the DVD given with mac book pro
3. before rebooting (restart musical cord) press alt (option) key, when the display appears
4. now you have to select which source disk you wish to start
5. must select the DVD you were insert
You have the same problem, when you connect the power connector?
Make sure you see the light go on, before you try to start the mac.
I sometimes have to start twice or even three times, because my battery is getting old. but till now it always started.
The time bar may be telling you that there's damage to the hard drive, or perhaps just your hard drive's main partition. If your Mac is running OS X Lion or Mountain Lion, you should have a recovery partition with Disk Utility on it. Restart your Mac while holding down Command-R to boot into this instead of your regular partition. Follow Apple's instructions on how to use Disk Utility to see whether the hard drive is damaged or just corrupted (and potentially corrupted).
The first part of the message is saying that you can't have a start up hard drive that is already partitioned. Did you try launching Boot Camp Assistant? If you look in your "Applications" folder and open the "Utilities" folder, it's there. I believe Boot Camp Assistant will create the partition you need.
Boot off the install disk with nothing else attached to the PC. ( external hard drives especially ). Choose ‘Terminal’ in the ‘Utilities’ menu Then (substituting the correct values for your setup), type: diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk0 1 GPTFormat JournaledHFS+ my-hard-disk 111G It’s all one line and hit return at the end. You should see progress information, followed by a neat table giving the new formatting that has been applied. ‘/dev/disk0’ is how the operating system refers to the first whole disk
in the system.
Then, the ‘1’ here signifies that you want one volume only on the drive.
replace ‘my-hard-disk’ with the volume name you want to use. This is
the name of the disk as it appears in the finder.
Replace ‘111G’ with the size of the disk in
gigabytes. It’s usually about the same as the disk, and as the
partitioning software will stretch a single partition to fill the disk
it doesn’t matter too much. 111G was the value used for a 120GB HDD, because I knew that it wasn’t really 120GB.
Hope this is of some help. If not a solution ( hard one to do over the net :) ) hopefully it will point you into a solution.
I suspect that your issue is that your external optical connects via USB. You can't boot from a DVD in this device because the device cannot be selected for boot -- PowerPC Macintoshes cannot boot over USB.
There are multiple ways to finesse this. Some (use target disk mode or network boot) require a second Mac. Some (copy the DVD to an external drive) require an external FireWire drive. Or you can obtain a FireWire DVD drive for under $70. Any way you cut this, you are going to have to buy or borrow additional hardware to do this job.
You have probably formatted the hard drive when trying to install XP, XP is not compatible with Mac hardware. You will need to purchase a copy of the Mac OS or try and locate the restore disks that should have come with your computer.
If you did a clean install on the whole volume, you wiped your Tiger installation. The best bet is to install your preffered operating system first. When you do it, partition the drive into two of about equal size. Install the other OS into the other patition and have a menu to start the wanted OS when you turn on the computer. You will have to do some research on dual boot computers.
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.
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.
