    Read the onmac.net FAQ. It says that you will have to rebless the xom.efi file.

    Remember that Apple has said they will not prevent others from running windows on a Mac.

    Please use a more descriptive thread title next time!

    Not a problem, I certainly don't mind if people are receptive to forum etiquette. And, frankly, you'll get more replies this way, too.

    Yeah you gotta go to www.onmac.com and look at the "How To" section, then follow the instructions again, only the part regarding putting the XOM file in your home directory and blessing it via terminal, you will need to complete only that short section of the install, as when you re-installed OS X it would've changed preferences and not called upon this file at boot-up. The partition and all files are still on your drive, this just needs to be completed because it is the file that gives you the option of booting a different OS at startup.

    Hope that helps.

    You're right. The link is www.onmac.net.
