I can format my drive and still have chameleon boot. Where as if the boot is on the root of the drive good luck.
If you have the need to completely wipe the HD, you will lose boot anyway.
Why are you against having the boot on the EFI? I know this is actually not the way as in a real mac right?
No i'm not against it, i just think it's a big waste of time;from
the pain in the rear, that's having to mount it (when it's not supposed to be mounted after boot process) just to update stuff,to
formatting it as hfs, which completely invalidates the UEFI specification, thus invalidating the GPT, which can cause recognition
problems for other systems (like Windows starting showing it on the Explorer) and even OS X,going through
the fact that people insist in spreading that it's a FAT32 partition when it's not (read
that to keep 3 patched system kexts there (or in Extra, for that matter) i have to add 6 other as dependencies**
(not counting with AppleHDA.kext plugins, 3 of them if i do remember), etc, etc...
And then there's the "keeping the system vanilla" justification; even Mac users hack the system to change/add functionality,
therefor killing vanilla so, were do we stand here??... there's no vanilla! (imho)
Etc, etc, etc...
Yeah, i have many reasons to call it "non sense", but i'm not against it... i just don't support it!
You are free to do as you please, as much as i'm entitled to have an opinion.. that's all.
Now, let's quit the talk and go do something really useful, like lunch and try to code a bit
