This is UUID for the User account, not related to Hardware UUID.

Thanks for answering. I've already solved this issue long ago :D Go to the full post

Using windows7 , I don't find any version which support win7

Strange. I had the same error and deleting the ADS fixed it for me. Since then I have never let OS X write to NTFS drives, and I never saw the NTFS fixup error message again. My shared partitions use the exFAT filesystem...which has its own set of issues..

Yep, I've considered using exFat. But it's said that exfat is not good for harddisk
it's used for usb and so on

Do you hear of the software "MacDrive" ? It can empower you to write files to Mac in windows
Maybe I will uninstall this software and check if it's ok then

Edit:
After I uninstall the software, the problem still exists.
Don't know what to do :(

p.H, the correct key for changing the system id is "SystemId" (case sensitive) I see you've tried SystemID, however that won't work. SMSystemId (or any variation of that) is not in the chameleon code base any more, and will not work. If the SystemId flag is not passed, chameleon will attempt to read from the smbios. Finally, in the event that that does not exist, it'll use a fixed value of "0123456789ABCDEF".

The only reason you'd have a system id that is changing every time, is if for some reason the id is being changed by the bios. Please post a copy of the bdmesg output and I'll see if anything stands out as begin wrong. actually, post two copies if you would, make sure that each copy comes form a separate boot w/ separate uuids.

thanks for your reply
If you have followed the posts before, you will notice that ever since I put the SMsystemid string in my smbios file I only have two UUIDs
Before SMsystemid was written to smbios, there are more than 10 different UUIDs

I'll post my bdmesg below everytime I boot my mac
Last not the least , thanks

Edit 1:
I choose restart in windows and boot into mac
UUID: 08D4626F-CED7-5C02-9881-1A3B5048F324 (almost every time I boot from win to mac, UUID changed to this value )
Here is the bdmesg1 : Attached File  bdmesg1.rtf   8.63KB   11 downloads
Edit 2:
Funny thing : When I restart my mac and boot in mac again, UUID changed to 0A9B31EF-114C-520E-B979-6E17453F35EC (also ,almost every time restart mac and boot in mac)
bdmesg2:Attached File  bdmesg2.rtf   8.63KB   4 downloads

Thanks Meklort for clearing up the confusion, and p.H., sorry about the mess!

I guess SystemId goes in org.chameleon.Boot.plist then?

Can you post a link to the diff or revision or whatever in the Trunk source where this went in? I'll correct my posts on the first page.

Even if it's SystemId that really matters, I've tried this before!
But you know , the problem still exists. :(

p.H, how did you try to use SystemId (do note that not only is it case sensitive, but what follows must be in a very specific format (such as 5A180000-0000-0000-0200-000C02021001).

I don't know what revision it was changed in, but it's been that way for a while. Check http://forge.voodoop...saio/fake_efi.c, line 493. It states that the kSystemID define is used, which is defined as "SystemId" in boot.h. Actually, looks like in the diff posted on the first page is when it was changed, commit 29.

Yep, I have followed the format.
Maybe I should try SystemId again
