when installing Linux you need to specify that grub be installed on same partition as the OS (Linux) so mbr will be left alone and chameleon can boot all 3

This method will make some other problems i think, like when i'll select the Win 7 partition from the boot menu it'll open the grub than i'll need to select the win 7 again.

yeah lots of people suggested me to do that but during installation it never asked to me for that option :(

it doesn't "ask" but it does give option. when installing you'll have option for where to install grub, then where to install OS, then were to install swap space. Google it if you have trouble.

Does chameleon is able to boot Linux bootloader on the same drive? Because I tried before and chameleon wasn't able to do that(it inly boots Windows loader and OSX).

Do one thing install windows 7 and mac on SSD and install Linux on HDD
make sure Linux boot loader installed in particular drive not on entire drive(HDD)
and then install Latest chameleon boot loader on mac drive it will show all three OS

Hmm.., so you say that it won't work on usual hdd, only on ssd? That is strange, I don't understand why it depends from a type of a drive.

You mean that chameleon will boot Linux only if a Linux bootloader is installed on a separate physical hard drive?
