Hi,

I have been running a p5w off of a 2tb seagate for a while and have just needed to upgrade to a 3tb, a seagate as well. i was using chameleon to boot.

i cannot get any bootloader to boot off the 3tb disk. i have tried all the installers and installing manually with the same result. boot0 error.

The workaround is to install chameleon on a usb stick.

Any got any ideas of things to try to get this working again?

Thanks!

solved this by unmounting the disk and doing dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 bs=4096 with chameleon. I also marked the partition as active, not sure if that was necessary. The difference was I had not used the bs=4096 option.
