After some tweaking and experimenting I got full R/W access to a NTFS drive (With no OS installed on the drive). I have played with NTFS drivers for Linux in the past, they do work but can be buggy. In OS X though it seems very stable. Mac .app folders (applications) run great from NTSF. The only downside I found was when deleting files they are deleted immediately and not moved to the trash.
I did this on my MacBook Pro not a hackintosh/OSx86
Yes, I know the icon is that of a network drive, but read it's a firewire drive ;)
After I fix some stuff and no one else does it 1st I will post a full guide and all the tools you will need.
_________________________ _________________________ ________
MAKE SURE YOUR NTFS DRIVE WAS UNMOUNTED IN WINDOWS 1ST
Code:PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin export PATH
Code:sudo ln -s /System/Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/mount_fusefs /usr/local/bin/mount_fusefs[use disk utility to find you drive name and identifier (see IMG A-1)]Code:sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g /usr/bin/ntfs-3g
Mount:Code:sudo mkdir /Volumes/"YOUR NTFS DRIVE"
Code:sudo ntfs-3g /dev/disk*s* /Volumes/"YOUR NTFS DRIVE" -o ping_diskarb,volname="YOUR NTFS DRIVE"
Edit fstab as need: (I will not tell you how, because it could cause lots of problems)
