[SOLVED] I solved this problem by reinstalling the Chameleon binaries to each RAID slice, and by placing a copy of the /Extra folder (with the new UUID) into the Boot OS X partition of each RAID Slice.



I screwed up my Hackintosh after attempting to upgrade from 10.7.2 to 10.7.3. So I decided to boot from an installation USB drive, and then restore via a time machine backup. This process wipes out the existing RAID 0 drive, and restores over it. When this happened, the UUID for the RAID logical drive changes. When i attempt to boot from the freshly restored backup, It stops at this message:

Rooting via boot-uuid from /chosen: xxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxx-xxx(the old UUID)

I thought the answer was to simply change the UUID in org.chameleon.Boot.plist to the new logical drive's UUID. I did this, and it didn't fix it. the boot screen still tries to point to the old UUID. Does anyone know where else I can look to change the UUID?

Thank you.

Open Utilities/Disk Utilities, click Tab RAID (select Disk Slice), click Info icons on the top of windows.

Thanks, but I'm not sure you read through my post. I know what the new UUID is. the problem is that the restored system is trying to boot from the previous logical drive's UUID. I'm not sure where else I can change this to point to the new UUID, instead of the old one. I've already added the new UUID to /Extra/

org.chameleon.Boot.plist
