Of course you do, but it doesn't work like that.

Stating that you are in a hurry and want everything handed to you on a plate is the best way to prevent people from helping you.

In your new, much nicer version of your first post you are now referring to a mysterious guide and a "program".

Nobody will be able to answer your question unless they already know what guide/program you are talking about.

You can use a real Mac or a working Hackintosh to install Chameleon to your USB flash drive. There are plenty of guides for manual install, and also some great automated/point and click installers available.
If you don't have access to a Mac you can probably use this:

Yes, you can install OS X in a virtual machine and use that to prepare a real install.

Head on over here for more information:

You could just burn the ##### CD for Chameleon Bootloader.
And you could have used Transmac (or tried, doesnt always work) to restore the Snow Leo DMG to a USB Drive.
Launch ##### with USB plugged in and selected the USB Drive from iBoots chameleon Bootloader.

If you got the VM working, use ##### to install a bootloader to a selected HDD/USB.

It won't work if you just copy it to the flash drive, you must use Apple Disk Utility to "restore" the DVD to the flash drive. Then install the Chameleon boot loader to it.

i already bumped the image file to the usb.But i don't know how to install the boot loader to the USB.i actually don't really understand the chameleon installation.I mean in the popular guide for the asus eee pc 1101ha it says to edit the values to point to the usb and then execute it.But how to execute it ? i'll try to find a guide online

There are point and click installers for Chameleon available here on IM, use the forum search to find them.

I have a manual installation guide up over here:
http://forum.voodoop...x.php/topic,649 *)
Just think of your USB flash drive as a normal hard drive.

*)note that you must register as a user to see/download the attached files.

Yes you can restore it to USB and then you should be able to boot from it.

Of course I can't guarantee that it will work with your hardware.

Don't try to add kernel extensions to the install DVD itself, it can be done but it's much too complicated. Try to install from it, select a minimum set of kernel extensions to avoid conflicts. You can always fix things post-install, provided drivers are available for your hardware of course.
