Switch from Chameleon to Clover and viceversa without reinstall

12 August 2016 - 10:44 PM

Hi,
I want share my experience:
I have installed Enoch on my system ( legacy and MBR ) and all works fine.
I have osx Lion , MLion, Mavericks , Yosemite , El Capitan and Windows XP.

Because i like to experiment , i have created a Clover USB pen to boot into Hd and after i have configured it , i have been able to boot to all OSes without iusses.

Then the problem was to install Clover on Hd and because i didn't want to loose my prior bootloader , i do so :

On my hd active partition i had

/Extra folder and /boot

Then i renamed /boot to /boot-e
And i have copied
/Efi folder and boot file from Clover USB pen. Reboot
VoilĂ 
Clover boots fine from hd and when i want to boot Enoch , i change boot file on Hd and reboot.

No iusses , no reinstall bootloader anymore to switch from Clover to Enoch and viceversa.

Hint: it works because i have a legacy pc with MBR partitions and /Extra and /Efi folders don't interfere each other.

However i think it should be fine also with GPT and EFI partition.
I didn't try yet

P.S.
I'm writing an Osx application to do the task:
- rename /copy / switch boot file
- reboot system.

When i have done it , i will post here

See Ya
