Question about Computers & Internet
A solution to the problem is to insert the OS X install cd without pressing any key. When the install times out, OS X should boot from the harddisk. To make a partition active, do this:
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (the disk number may be different on your installation, eg. rdisk1)
print (list all partitions)
flag 1 (sets partition 1 as bootable - might be a different number on your installation)
quit (answer y to save settings)
When this solution does not work, try this:
Start the computer with the CD.
Wait until you can start the Terminal from the menu
fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0 (or any other number if it is not the first disk)
Quit the Terminal
Quit the Installer
A dialog box apears
Click "Choose Startup Disk"
Choose your first disk
Click Reboot . . . . . .
