Hi,

I am using a HD with 4 partitions.

- 1st: Lion 10.7.4
- 2nd : MLion (not yet installed)
- 3rd: Data
- 4th: MLion GM Base System

In order to install MLion I followed the Guide in this SubForum ( http://www.insanelym...howtopic=277015 ).
When I boot from partition 4, Chameleon (version r2003) comes always back to the first page of the Boot Loader.
I have tried with different Chameleon versions, same result.

Any help is appreciated

Your chameleon possibly can't load the mountain lion kernel.
You can try the chameleon from this package: bit.ly/zPwxDS
It works for me!

I found it there:

Hi apple32,

I already try it. (Chameleon Trunk 1820)
No success.

boot with -v and post the last message before the restart.



Hi JamesLittler,

I post all the -v. Maybe it can help.

Update your chameleon to 2012 using chameleon wizard (use the dropbox link). I know 2012 is good as it's the version I'm using.

Post your org.chameleon.boot.list.
Post your system spec.

Might have something to do with boot flags/bootloader if it won't get past loading the kernel.

Hi JamesLittler,

No luck. Tried with Chameleon Wizard and Dropbox Boot0. Chameleon is now v2012.

see my org.chameleon.Boot.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...tyList-1.0.dtd">

I think you should try again making the installation disk by following another guide to be sure.


This worked for me --> http://www.macbreake...lion-on-pc.html

PS: Your pc seems to be ok for hackintosh.

Thats what the issue is. There is no 32 bit support at all after DP2. Remove this line and try to boot into the install.
