I have an issue I've been trying to figure out. Chameleon seems to ignore the dsdt.aml in /Extra when I'm booting from internal drive. If I boot with this chameleon, I get a black screen on boot since my DSDT has my gfx card info in it. If I force it to GraphicsEnabler=true, I can boot the system. However no sound, becasue that is in the DSDT too. I have a backup boot device that (external hd), when use, and booted with -v I can see it loading the DSDT, everything after using this everything works fine. You can see my conundrum. I don't want to have to haul around my external HD to get my machine to boot!

Anyone have the slightest idea?

(yes both have the same org.Chameleon.Boot)

What version of chameleon are you using ? Also, did you add the ACPI codec in the installed modules for chameleon ? If so, Create a folder in Extra and name it Acpi , then copy your DSDT.aml inside.

EDIT: The Acpi/dsdt.aml works
