Hi, i have success with F8 , new 2.0 Bootscreen and selecting an XP (NTFS) Partition for booting. Worked !
Be sure that you select right partition for the install of chameleon. My HD has 3 Partiitions, 1. XP,2 +3 OS X. I installed chameleon on 2. partition (OS X) NOT! the first XP.

System boots more quickly.
SMBIOS patching work perfectly. Now I finally got rid of SMBIOS enablers.
GUI is beautiful. I changed my theme right away.
I just wish I could move from the bootloader screen to OS X without the screen going black (to change resolution).

Thanks a lot to the whole Chameleon team for the hard work. It works great on my DP35DP motherboard with SATA hard disk.

I have created a convenient shell script to install the Chameleon 2.0-RC1 boot loader to your EFI boot partition.

It may prove useful if you have followed this tutorial by Munky to setup your EFI partition as the boot volume.

Note that the script is provided for instructional purposes only. Use at your own risk.

Do NOT ask the Chameleon team for help with this script.

Works for me with EFI Partition and Vista on a separate harddisk.

smbios.plist works partially (shows MacPro3,1 in System Profiler but Geekbench recognizes still "Hackintosh").

Shutdown works fine (for the first time with this Mainboard), reboot does it too.
Sleep works, wakeup not (like before)

One huge issue: CPU- & FSB frequency is not recognized correctly, i overclocked my system to CPU at 4,25 GHz and FSB to 2,12 GHz.

MSR-Tools show the frequency correctly, also the temperature seems to fit to the overclocked specs but System Profiler and "sysctl -a hw.cpufrequency" fails:

Does anybody know how to set a default Disk to Boot? It starts everytime with the wrong hdd...


Edit: so, the frequency issue and the recognize in Geekbench could get fixed by editing the smbios.plist as i`ve been told by kabyl, thx for that :)

Only problem is still wakeup from sleep, but this is only a disfigurement as i don`t use sleep with my pc

Well yeah, very nice but since it doesn't have SSDT override I'm not yet switching...
I'm waiting for the eventual release...
Very cool though...

DropSSDT=y and add your SSDT stuff to the main DSDT.

Works.. nice nice :)

If someone knows how to boot an Ubuntu installation on a second hdd, please tell me.
Chameleon recognizes the FAT32 partition on the second disk, but not the ext3 partitions.

TIA

Yeah I'm pretty sure you can't wait for source to change something and mark it(like dogs) with your name, like you did with old one and others work.
I wonder if you can write some kext or something from start to finish, if yes prove it if no please don't make me vomit again.
I will ask chameleon dev's, beg if necessary, to add a special note in license: "The usage of this source is forbidden for Andy Vandijck, DO NOT touch it!"

Yes I can write kext's and more from scratch...
It's not that hard really... just see Apple's IOKit kext tutorial...
BTW: I allready made 2 apps from scratch... just take a look at my PPF-O-Suite.
Anyhow... I don't have anything to prove to you...
If you think you are so great why don't you make anything huh...
That's my opinion anyway... besides... the stuff that I would add to it would be simple and I wouldn't change the name with this one...
Last one I did lots of changes and found it necessary to change the name...
This one is different...
Please go bother someone else with your {censored}...

like what? :) we want to hear from you, or you prefer not to tell? (I'm fine with either).

Well proper Mac id data and SSDT override...
That's what I would add for the moment...
If needed also clean up the warnings in the source (if any)...
I like stuff to be perfected so....
