I just finished a clean install of Mavericks DP2. I keep having trouble with Chameleon and it doesn't want to boot unless I boot via my USB.

 

If I install Chimera over Chameleon will it mess anything up? I want to try it as a bootloader and see if I can get this problem fixed so I can boot without a USB drive.

 

I am tired of the boot0 GPT error. I have messed with Chameleon over and over and still get the same results.

 

Thanks for your thoughts and help!

I would ask this over at TonyMac.....he is sorta persona non gratia here.

They would be able to give you the definitive answer on this.

Well my Pandoras Box installer already had Chameleon Wizard but I have installed Chameleon over and over trying to get it to work as boot loader. Never had this problem before. I there a way to pull up Chameleon or can I only edit it with the wizard now? The Chameleon Wizard app is all I see when I go to finder.

 

Thanks!

remove all files that start with "boot" on you / drive (i.e. boot, boot0, boot1, boot2h, etc) then reinstall chameleon
