Very few motherboards support boot chimes (music) on boot, so it's very unlikely. I guess we just have to stay with our BIOS beep instead.... LOL

OT really, but does you MB actually beep when you turn it on? Never had one that did that and it would drive me nuts if it did. I mean, seriously why would it need to beep? So that even the dumbest idiot would notice when the PC is actually turned on (in case he misses the sound of the fans and the brightness of the display)?

OnT: This is really cool, but I don't really need it as I'm not dual booting.

Motherboards have all kinds of beeps if i recall. Their are individual ones to tell between types of hardware faults. RAM, Processor etc.

One beep means all is well.

Wow this is truly exquisite! I definitely look forward to it as I've got several Operating systems and my boot change method is to use the bootloader from the BIOS since I dedicated OS to their own hard drives.

This will be great!

I'm not to fond of the chameleon on the top...if they could make one that emulates the mac bootcamp bootloader that would be amazing

Theme support was added for those that want a bootcamp theme. It can't be included by us because its would be a copyright violation. To stay legal it has to be this way. It shouldn't take anyone longer than a few hours to create a bootcamp theme either (just copy some files to the same volume as chameleon is installled on).

But what about the chime? Is that possible to do in the future maybe? This would really begin to bridge the gaps as well.

I hope that the countdown will be added automatically instead of having to add it to the Boot.plist... Hopefully :)

I'm curious how the images will be implemented as well. Will the images need to be built-in to the bootloader somehow or will there be a directory you can just drag and drop. I'll be all over making a bootcamp theme. :D

Also, forgot to ask the mother of all questions...

I think the chime appeal is more the nostalgia than it actually being necessary to tell if the machine turned on.
