Autoloads at boot. With Chameleon 2 RC3 you may or may not need to make a mkext first.


hmm doesn't seem to work. i see a tool here for making mkexts, i should just package it and toss it in the extra folder?

Seems like you're probably missing some needed kexts. Sorry I can't be more of help.

I got some help in another thread.
The bios setting for the USB drive detection had to be set to 'detect as HDD' instead of auto detect.

So now it starts to load the gui but its just beach balling at the first grey screen.

Ha Doc, Can you fix the loader so I can add the options? They say you can use RC 2 loader but I do not know how?

You mean bad in terms of hardware? Because the hd i use is a brand new sata drive.

Yes. The hard drive was working but kept putting 10.5.8 on two other hard drives in panic. Did everything to hard drive threw Mac side on on system disk repair but still did it. I have in the past several had hard drive go out in 3 days in the world on Microsoft

I just got mine working. Well kind of. I did a manual install to both raid slices but no matter what I try, only one of them will boot properly. Other one just does this...

Boot0: GPT
Boot0: Testing
Boot0: Testing
Boot0: Done

Then it just sits there an I have to reboot.

Can you share your install method please?

Thanks

Interesting. That's the exact same result I got (non RAID setup). It might get installed alright, but Chameleon RC3 won't startup.

is there any way to remove this from my system? I screwed up and now my previously working system under "life hacker" method was working great. Installed this now having major problems.

Thoughts?

Thanks for this package Dr. Hurt! I found that by using Show Contents I could add in exactly the kexts I need and tweak the postflight script to fit my system perfectly.
