Chameleon Flashes then Reboots - cannot boot into mac

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I am running Snow leopard and whenever I am trying to boot into mac and I get the Chameleon screen, I would click the boot into mac thing and chameleon flashes and stops dead and reboots my computer. If I boot to my Windows 7 drive, no problem everything works fine. I tried making a bootable chameleon usb and the same thing happened, I choose to boot into mac and it flashes the screen then reboots. What is even more curious is that i can boot into mac if i use ModCd to boot into it with no problems at all. I can boot into windows with no problems at all.


Thanks for looking.
