Trying to use this utility under Windows 8 64-bit. Keep getting an error cant open disk. Is this not compatible with Win 8?

Did so, always comes up saying error accessing said disk. Even tried to clean diskutil and re-write a new fat32 FS. Either something is accessing it in the background (which I cant find) and the OS isnt releasing it or there is some compatibility issue. o.O

Very strange. Some program does not relieve the drive for exclusive access. Maybe this is the virus protection program.

*sighs*
Just checked its not a virus scanner or Windows Defender interfering with anything, its not. Other direct USB disk access utilities work fine too (HP boot reformat, the Linux Universal USB Boot installer, etc) with no problem (could it have anything to do with my using UEFI native mode out of curiocity?). Tried Win7 compatibility mode, made sure it is running with admin privileges. This is just nuts. Anyways would it be possible to get the manual steps this tool is automating so I can do it myself? I am just wondering what extra steps are needed and exactly what Chameleon files need to be copied over after the Clover manual USB install. I have gotten the /Extra folder copied over with the smbios & chameleon plist with the Themes folder moved over. Is it just Chameleon's boot1h I need to move over as boot1 to USB root for everything to work or are there other files from the i386 folder I need to move over. I am using Enoch r2188 release as a manual base and am getting a bit confused since the basic Chameleon documentation hasn't been updated since early 2.1 days in most places. x.x
Thanks in advance for any help, wish your great utility worked for me.

Thank You ! I understand why I had an error : I didnt know how to use BootUtility correctly.

" extract another resulting InstallESD\InstallMacOSX.pkg\InstallESD.dmg into InstallESD\InstallMacOSX.pkg\InstallESD with 7-Zip
- this will result in InstallESD\InstallMacOSX.pkg\InstallESD\3.hfs file - the image of HFS+ volume"
This 3.hfs file is the right file to use.

Once you open BDUtility, directly go to Options > Configurations > then check Multi Partitioning :)

i mean:
BIOS / (u)EFI
Windows (setup) / *nix (live and setup) / MAC (real mac an hackintosh)
Grub (legacy, grub2, grub4dos) or burg or LILO or SYSLINUX

Clover or Chameleon use some kind of MBR/PBR bootsector ?

Fedora 18 (x86_x64)
Hirens
UBCD

BdU was created for new hackintosh users only for simplify the installation of a Clover to the flash drive.

But you can use Clover bootloader for boot all you systems:

Main Features
Boot into 10.4 - 10.8 OSX, Windows EFI and Linux EFI
Boot into LegacyOS (WindowsXP, Linux, DOS) by their bootsectors
...


For more information about it, read the relevant forum topics - Clover General discussion.

I really dont understand how to use this I think.

 

I created the USB Disk with on partition 1 the clover image and om partition 2 i have restored my 2.hfts partition which was created from my 10.8.4 dmg file via the BDutility.

If i boot from the created USB I get the Clover startup screen, and there I can choose to boot from all my HD's but not from my in BDUtility created 2nd partition with the 2.hfs file restored on it USB-stick.

 

The USB stick is created with 2 partitions, p1 is the clover partition, p2 is the 2.hfs partition. Why dont i see this p2-USB-stick not in the list of bootable disks in the Clover screen?
