Hello
I have made a USB installer using the restore method and chameleon r1820 it boots fine and gets to the gray fabric looking screen but the installer itself never comes up any one else having this trouble? anyone have a solution I have tried chameleon versions from 1820-1897 I have tried booting from the installed chameleon and have tried -v -v PCIRootUID unplugging the hard drives with windows installed I cannot think of any thing else to try I even re-downloaded Dp 3 and tried that.

Others have had success around this problem using -x flag at boot also set usekernelCache=No in boot.plist file.

One person reported success this way.

Boot to the linen screen.
Click a couple of times on linen screen.
Cursor will turn to spinning rainbow.
Press <Enter> 3 times.
Wait a minute or two.
