Hello

I'm sure you've been in my position before, whence, for no apparent reason, the Boot-Loader doesn't load.

You could always use your Installation disc, which would have a timeout till booting to the 1st detected partition. However there are certain disadvantages to this, including;
  • Can't choose between the different partitions
  • Need the DVD in your drive 24/7
  • Can't select certain boot paramaters you may need
So my idea to solve this problem is, Installation of Chameleon from a LiveDVD

If you have any ideas on how I could pull this off, or if there is already a solution out there that can do this for me, I'd be grateful if you could share with me the information.

Thanks in advance,

Panarchy

Once you are booted, download the chameleon bootloader (Chameleon-1.0.11-installer.zip).

Now, make you partition active.

Good luck, boot without DVD.

Ended up not helping, but after 4 or so reinstallations I can now boot up!

Got 4 of my 9 OSs installed!
