I already have several machines that have a very small (50MB) MacOS 8.5
partition to use BootX.
MacOS was installed on the first possible partition (mostly /dev/sda5) with
linux on sda >= 6.
I'm going to initially try quik with a MacOS clean setup, but I'm wondering
about these machines I've already setup.
Since OF looks through the partitions for a bootable one, will it skip the
HFS partition and continue looking to find the Linux partition?
