I installed Yosemite using the guide here : http://www.insanelym...hameleon-r2437/

All is well except booting - I have to boot using the usb installer. If I set my new Yosemite drive as the first bootable drive in the bios, it is ignored (no messages) and the next available drive boots instead.

What I've tried so far:
  • Setting Start Disk to the Yosemite drive using the built-in Mac tool Start Disk.
  • Setting partition active on Yosemite drive.
  • Installing most recent chameleon (v2.3 r2437) on new Yosemite drive.
  • Rebuilding kext caches.

Gigabyte EX58-UD5
i7 2.67GHz
GeForce 9800GT 512MB
SSD Boot drive

I am using a DSDT.aml file which I found for my motherboard, which fixes a problem with the resetting of CMOS.
That worked fine on Mavericks - I don't know if it needs to be updated for Yosemite.

Any suggestions - should I be looking at Clover instead?
Or is this just a simpler problem to do with making my boot drive properly active?

Ok, it's a boot0 error problem. The error messages were going past too quickly for me to see them. I tried the solution of doing dd with boot1h from a usb installer to the unmounted Yosemite partition, but it didn't work.
Any recommendations on how to proceed?
