Thank you. I will continue to test when you maybe work all the kinks out with EFI. And again, great app, very VERY helpful. ;)

I had windows and osx on same drive in GPT. This CHameleon Wizard broke my Windows every time (4 reinstalls) no matter what option I used. It couldn't have been particular to my setup.Maybe it will tolerate MBR better. If there's no Windows, it works like magic.

Even Update broke Windows?
Are you using EFI Partition?
No one else reported me such a problem...

I use standard commands, I have no idea what could cause that...
boot0hfs:

fdisk -f boot0hfs -u -y /dev/rdiskX
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY
cp boot /


boot0:

fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskX
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY
cp boot /

fdisk -e /dev/diskX
f Y
write
y
exit

Thanks, that seems to be the problem...
I used normal one :)

Edit: New BETA version 1.7. Added fdisk440. Shouldn't break windows anymore. (Update in previous versions was safe, fdisk isn't executed when that option is selected.)

Shouldn't "write" just be "w"? When I use those commands I use "w".

Write also works. Tested about 15 times on external hdd. Active partition was changed without problems.

Ah, finally becoming a formidable tool! I am adventurous so I fear nothing. It worked this time. Janek202, I don't mind doing OS X install a dozen times for there's Carbon Copy Cloner; but Windows is the untamable beast when it comes to reinstall.
Anyway, this little tool is heavenly.

What do mean by that?
Removing /boot file?

Currently I don't plan this feature.

Well, a friend of mine told me that he had XPC boot loader on EFI partition to boot Lion on a secondary HDD and he used Chameleon Wizard by mistake on that HDD and now when he tries to boot from XPC on that HDD it boots chameleon instead. I don´t know how he can revert that and I don´t want to mess my system doing the same to help him.

I don't want to mess with my system either.

I don't know how to do that. I don't use XPC.

That can happen if you have older chameleon than RC5.
Should be ok now.

Couple minutes ago I realised, that I forgot about one button: "Mount and Check".

http://dl.dropbox.co...er/en.lproj.zip

/* MountCheck */
"Mount and Check" = "Mount and Check";

I'm really sorry about that, and thanks to all who made translations. :)
