I don't have a Blueray DVD-R/RW, so I'd have to install this from a USB stick.
I have tried the following options, and miserably failed with each of them.
A) Windows 7
1) Using TransMac
a) I used Transmac to copy the .dmg file to the USB, but it won't make it bootable.
b ) I used Bootdisk utility to install clover and chameleon. The USB boots, but the boot menu won't install the package. It just hangs.
2) Using 2 USB drives in Windows 7
a) I used DMG2IMG to convert the .dmg to .img file.
I, then, used Win32img to write the .img file to the USB.
c) Finally, I used Bootdiskutility to install clover and chameleon.
This boots the USB, but the boot menu doesn't install the package. It just get stuck there.
1) Carbon Copy Cloner to write the .dmg file to the USB.
Kalyway 10.5.2 with the Vanilla_93 kernel won't install many Mac programs, including Carbon Copy Cloner, Unarchiver, or even the Mac drivers for a USB WiFi modem.
2) Inbuilt Mac Disk Utility.
a) I used the restore function with the source and destination options. It did write the .dmg file to the USB.
I then used Chameloen multibooter ML2_Bootloader_Installer.pkg.zip to make it bootable. It goes a few seconds into the boot process and then reboots the computer.
3) ##### fails to execute the script.
4) Mutibeast installs the loader. It boots with the loaders, but the bootloader 'options menu' doesn't load from the USB when I choose it. It just hangs.
E) I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 with Windows 7 Enterprise and Kalway 10.5.2 OSX (Kalyway 10.5.2 installation was very simple. I just burned the ISO to a DVD, and booted from it)
a) I have both disabled and enabled the multi-core, speedstep, hyperthreading and AHCI options.
1) OSX won't boot from a GUID partition, so I used EASYBCD and then renamed chain0 for the multiboot menu. This works fine for the Kalyway 10.5.2
2) I've formatted the USB drive with an MBR partition (Mac Extended Journaled), but it still won't boot from it.
F) Is the problem with the extracted image? It shows an IATKOS icon, and you find the two primary folders inside it when you double click on it . Do I need to take these folders out, and place them in the root directory? Or Do i need to try a different boot loader?
( Could you provide me with some information on GUID partitions. I'm only familiar with the MBR.
I've been taking computers apart since 1987, but am not familiar with the OSX. I stuck to DOS, UNIX, and Windows 3.1. I finally chose Windows 95 over the OSX in 1995, and never looked back.
I've realized that the PC BIOS doesn't recognize Active GUID Partitions. I managed to boot the Kalyway only after I made the entry in EASYBCD and then renamed chain0 to fool EasyBCD because its menu isn't as neat as that of Chain0. I hear you need tboot for logical partitions. You do realize that the files on primary partitions are invisible from other primary partitions, but those from extended ones are accessible.)
