I successfully installed Dualboot Ubuntu 11.10 64 Bit and OS X Lion on
single partition of my netbook.
HD is partitoned as GPT with Efi System Partition (ESP). (grub-efi-amd64
and grub-efi-amd64-bin version 1.99-12ububtu12) Grub2 is installed on ESP
and is invoked by UEFI boot process. Grub2 starts flawlessly Ubuntu 11.10
I can boot OSX from external USB Stick (called MINI) but this is a
cumbersome, almost painful procedure : interrupting boot process,
selecting USB Stick to start Chameleon v2.1svn r1640. Chameleon detects
'hd(1,3) LION' partition but fails sometime to start. It can't find
/machkernel. After inserting 'rd=disk0s3' on cmd line, chameleon succeeds
usually at the second try.
Actually I want to boot OSX with help of Grub2 not needing USB Stick any
Grub can boot EFI-Shell where I start rEFIt (Version 0.14 -rws). rEFIt shows me
the options 'Boot Legacy OS from MINI' and 'Boot Legacy OS from Partition 3',
but cant boot it. Error is 'Starting legacy loader // Error: Not Found while
loading legacy loader // Please make sure that you have the latest firmware
My desktop computer boot snow leopard by grub1 installed on first MBR HD.
menu.lst contains the lines
title OS X Leopard
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/osx_boot biosdev=81
Option kernel is not used any longer at grub2. Trying to load osx_boot (Chameleon)
by using option linux or multiboot fails.
I tried also to use elilo. I can start elilo but elilo seems to boot only linux
and no other os.
Chameleon is installed on Lion (hd1,3) but how can I jump to it by grub2.
How can I flawlessly integrate OSX Lion into my boot process?
