  1. I have an IDE drive. My BIOS doesn't have any option to do with SATA controllers.
  2. I formatted the USB drive NTFS, then restored the disk image. This converted it into an HFS+ filesystem I think. Next, I ran the Chameleon 2.1 r2064 .pkg installer, and this is what I get in the installer log: Chameleon installer log - Sun Dec 23 14:36:20 GMT 2012 Installer version: 2.1svn 2064 ====================================================== /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *161.1 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh 160.2 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: iATKOS S3 version 2 *8.0 GB disk1 ====================================================== Backing up Chameleon files Backing up /Volumes/iATKOS S3 version 2 1/Extra folder to /Volumes/iATKOS S3 version 2 1/Chameleon.Backups/2012-12-23-14h36/Extra ====================================================== Renaming existing com.apple.Boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist Clearing options... ====================================================== Running Standard postinstall script Target volume = /Volumes/iATKOS S3 version 2 1 on /dev/disk1 NOTE: Target has existing unrecognised bootcode in the MBR.

This worked correctly straight away last time
  3. I've tried the Chameleon .pkg installer 3 times now and it seems to think I have a Windows partition on the disk, even though the disk has only one partition formatted HFS+. Is there a reason / workaround for this?
  4. No, that doesn't seem to work either. It's time to splash the cash then... sigh. Before, I booted just after I'd restored to the USB drive and it loaded the installer fully, GUI and everything, without finding the hard drive... was that a complete fluke? Just wanting to make sure if I am going to have to buy a whole new graphics card in order to make this work.
  5. It's a laptop with no onboard graphics... I could, but then I wouldn't be able to see the screen...
  6. Black screen again. Thanks for the help.
  7. The 'mach_kernel'. With the legacy kernel and boot flags -v -f I get the same thing.
  8. With boot flags -v -f, I get this: I'm running Chameleon 2.2, so surely there's no need for an update (if there is one)? Is there any way to force a clock speed if it can't find it itself? do I need to do something with NullCPUPowerManagement?
  9. No KPs to do with RTC now. Hooray! Not all good news though. Now, I have a panic to do with AppleACPIPlatform: Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I'm in the process of attempting to patch my RTC in my DSDT. If this doesn't work I can always try the Tonycopypastex86 method I suppose
  11. Any thoughts, anyone? I've now tried all the kernels included with Chameleon. Some reboot the computer, some kernel panic with ElliottForceLegacyRTC, but none work. I've changed around drivers, temporarily removed Extensions.mkext from /Extras... I'm at a bit of a loose end... please! Alistair
  12. No kexts with filenames relating to 'NVidia' or 'GForce' or 'nvdresman' in S/L/E, but there is an 'NVSMU.kext'. There's a 'NVEnabler64.kext' in Extra/Extensions...?
