I am having problems with this Release, i guess cause of:

"Added radekg’s HFS filesystem fix to handle 2GB+ file sizes."

I could boot and wake-from-disk when i had two harddrives in my system. I had to remove the second harddrive. Now, the bootloader hangs at the Cham-Boot Screen after selecting the boot partition. The Chameleonpicture is shown and a line saying "loading HFS+ File Systemconfiguration.plist" is visable, then the system freezes.

The only way to boot was to copy the PCEFI 10.5 boot file back :(

Can someone reproduce this?

I used your installer for the RC5-pre and it installed just fine. Two questions tough.

First, can you point to any doc for the new options etc..

And, second, how do I change back to the Theme I had been using? Not that I don't appreciate your red apple, but, since my Boot.plist does not appear to have been changed I don't know why it is using your default theme.

THANKS !
I read in yoor blog that the DSDT,aml (most will have) must now stay in /EXTRA and not in / (root) ?
Also, please note that you will need to move your DSDT.aml to the /Extra folder instead of the root folder. Or you can specify DSDT='path to your DSDT.aml' in com.apple.boot.plist.

Does this also be a must for all other newer "clones" of PC EFI 10.5 / 10.6 ?
(http://prasys.co.cc/ prays offerts also an newer Chameleon Clone since yesterday)
Not loading DSDT.aml may be an problem - so good to know which realeses need that in /EXTRA and which not.

WOW - has an PrefPane for much ++ things too ! GREAT+ MUCH THANKS


Q: The function to set the startvolume will set that partition active (to change boot from). GREAT. no more FDISK by hand needed.
Also there is an function to swap HD 0 <>1 or 2 if the list in that window isnt the list of OS X.
And now my ???: The list in the chameleon start volume TAB is correct , meaning same as Diskutil . But the active is my OSX_Snow_Leopard (1,1), second listed in that window list.
In which case is that HD 0 <>1 needed ? For my understanding i dont need that swap option but unsure.

HINT to DEVS: Would be really nice if they check (by fdisk call) which partition is current active and mark that somehow as active in that Volumes list. So that we can see which is current active.

Screenshoot of that new Prefpane with Chameleon RC5 Pre8: You can see, that that dev of the prefpane even LOCALIZED ist already - PERFECT!!!

I really like this. I had always tried to rely on some older version and Lizard to make changes to boot behavior. Now the Preference Pane is included. Also most importantly, Netflix's Silverlight works properly. What a job from Dr. Hurt + BlackOSX.
BTW, Dr. Hurt, I hope your earn an A in your second year of med school and your grade in this forum has always been A+ anyway.

I just tried the installer from Dr. Hurt for the Chameleon2 RC5-pre. It ran fine but on re-boot my system stalled waiting for the root device. It did not do that with Chameleon2 RC4 or the one a few posts earlier by tonymacx86.

I tried to boot using rd=disk0s3 but the boot process went into a loop with messages that it found disk0s3 but could not mount it. Thankfully, my SL pre-boot DVD works :D

I agree with mitch_de - the prefpane is GREAT! I just hope I can resolve the waiting for root device problem.
