I have a MacPro 1,1 and am considering installing Chameleon to emulate EFI64 (See http://www.jabbawok.net/?p=47).

The method described within Jabbawok's guide uses a second drive to set up Chameleon and the installer. This drive would continue to be used to boot but would point to the original drive.

Has anyone emplimented the Chameleon workaround to install 10.8 on hardware that has 64bit capable processor but has the old 32bit EFI? More specifically, has anyone completed this as a single drive setup.

I assume that with a second mac that has EFI64, you could install OSX and Chameleon to a target drive and then boot the drive in the MacPro.

If anyone has tried this, please tell describe your findings. Else, Ill give it a try over the weekend and report my findings.

MacPro 1,1
