Dear All,

In the chemaeon boot menu I can see my other hdd which on windows 8 installed. When I select here I see Windows 8 boot error.

If I want to boot up from Windows 8 everytime during BIOS POST Screen select first boot device and boot from this hdd. This way works but every time to make hdd selection is a bit hard.

Could you please help me to fix Win8 boot area? (or chemelaon)

Thanks

Hi,

Boot from the System Reserved partition when using Chameleon to boot, not directly from the Windows 8 partition.

Windows 8 stores it's boot files on that partition. If you boot directly of the HDD, it will actually boot from that partition. For the cosmetics, you can name the partition in the org.chameleon.boot.plist, and hide the Windows partition.
