hey guys,
I have a dell XPS L421X with windows 7 (legacy BIOS no UEFI)
I followed this guide pretty much exactly
and did a manual patch for the MBR found here to allow me to dual boot windows 7 and OSX on the same hard drive (different partitions). I did the install with myHack as outlined in in the guide and I'm using the supplied config files for chameleon bootloader.
Everything went well with the install and it works fantastic except I cant get Chameleon to load without the USB. 
When I try, all I get is "boot0:error" none of the extra junk that is commonly seen, strictly "boot0:error" and nothing more
I've tried the fix for 4k sectors and the other common fix outlined on MacBreaker: http://www.macbreake...oot0-error.html
both are of no avail to me. The only way I can get to windows is if I boot off the "Recovery" partition by using chameleon on the USB stick.
Intel Core i7-3687U @ 2.10GHz
Ivy Bridge Chipset
Intel HM77 Southbridge
RAM : 4GB DDR3-1333 (1X4) (Changed for a 8GB module)
Video : NVIDIA GeForce 630M, Intel HD Graphics
WDC [Blue] WD5000LPVX-7 500GB

with that said, any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys

I have had luck using the myFix option in myHack to fix boot0 errors.  I have never tried it on a hard drive with both windows and OSX installed.
