The voodoo team has finally released the Chameleon 2 RC3 boot loader which is the first boot loader to have proper Snow Leopard support, including proper extensions loading. This means no more .mkext needed (for some 32-bit users) and fewer extensions-related problems, leading to a smoother and easier OS X Snow Leopard install.

Many thanks to the Voodoo team and everyone else who was involved in making this possible.

This is an unofficial installation package.
PLEASE don't report any problems related to the installation package to Voodoo team. The Voodoo team is responsible for the boot loader itself only.

Use at your own risk.

Same problem here! No solution found yet....back to EFI10.2 for now.

EDIT:

I fixed my network! It seems the -x32 kernel flag in my com.apple.Boot.plist didn't work anymore so it booted up in 64bit and then my network doesn't work.
I changed the flag to arch=i386 and now it boots in 32bit with fully network.

It gave me "still waiting for root device", but Chameleon-2.0-r431 works great with PCEFI 10.1 in Snow.

I'll be quite honest about it.

Been quite old in the scene but only on the install and trial side.

But I just completed a Snow Leopard installation and a guide too.

But had used the Chameleon-2.0-RC2-r640.pkg

Have a fully working Snow Leopard Install with major apps running in 64-bit mode and also 32 bit ones like
Himmelbar, iStat Menu, Blitz, Microsoft Office 2008, iWork, iLife 09.

QE/CI enabled. using EFI strings and NVEnabler.kext in /Extra/Extensions.


Will try this one out soon.

Regards,


Freaky Chokra

PS: My respect to Kabyl for his extensive work in Tiger and Leopard.

How to get EFI64 with Chameleon-2-RC3-r658?

previously with Chameleon-2.0-RC1-r431 + PC_EFI-10.1 (with/without -x64 bootflag)

About the “Sound assertion” message:
That’s because we didn’t implement 64bit EFI System Table, and EFI Runtime Services,
I have done some work on it but didn’t get around to adding it yet.

Installer works as intended. Thanks for taking the time to put it together. :unsure:

I've been using -x32 flag in my com.apple.boot.plist so I got a KP on boot due to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement as this flag is not recognized in RC3 and my NullCPUPowerManagement was 32 bit.

Thanks for the installer.
I've still have trouble with my videocard (Gainward 9800GT 512)
When I start with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" my video is just fine. When I use an EFI-string I get a black screen.
Is there a way to boot always with this bootoption "GraphicsEnabler=Yes"???

I've tried so many things to get it work but none of them worked as it should!

Ed

p.s. I have a vanilla SL install via USB-boot-Install

Also my signature is from another machine
