hello,

 

I recently installed Mac OS X on a Asus Laptop

everything works perfectly except booting

my Pc does't recognize my HDD as a bootable medium anymore (it doesn't appear in the BIOS)

the only way to boot in Mac OS is by booting from the USB I used to install Mac OS on my laptop and then selecting the HDD

 

why doesn't my laptop recognize the hdd anymore?? is there a way i can boot Mac OS without using the USB??

You can't really install any Mac OS on non-Apple hardware. There are some hacks that allow this, but there are also copyright issues if you do this.

 

In your case, it's possible that the BIOS doesn't recognize the hard drive format because Macs use a different formatting from PCs. However, since the Mac OS is very similar to Linux and uses a similar drive format, that shouldn't necessarily be an issue. I suspect you've run into the non-Apple approved hardware issue.

So there is not really a fix for it?

also, I made a partition in NTFS format and installed windows XP on it but this won't show up in the bios either
