This is supposedly an old bug, but persists with Chameleon 2.1 / Chimera 11.x .
I have a 2 TB Time Machine volume. It's started to fill up, I've also added movies, etc. I think about 1.4 GB is used. The bootloader is stuck on boot, with the progress indicator slowing down and stopping. It's written elsewhere that this is due to the file system search function getting stuck on large volumes with overflow extents *sigh*. Anyhow, this bug currently prevents using large volumes. I have found no way to cleanly boot my Hackintosh otherwise, so I had to disable the volume.
Any suggestions on how to fix this situation is welcome.
Here is a thread about this old bug: http://forum.voodoop...opic,901.0.html
When I erase the MBR of the offending drive, I get Chimera to work beautifully. But I haven't found any way to bring the volume back and still get Chimera to run. One would think that Chimera wouldn't try to look into unbootable partitions, but it seems to... At any rate, this would still create a problem with bootable large partitions, so it ought to be important. Anyone else have the same problem?
