  1. Awesome, I will give it a shot. Is it meant to be loaded onto a USB drive or onto the Win or OSX partition? Holy mackerel, this grub stuff is heavy reading.
  2. Well, both OSes boot and run perfectly independently. Bootloaders on the OSX drive don't see the RAID array that windows is on so they don't let me boot to Windows from the bootloader. I was hoping if there was a Chameleon for Windows, then it would obviously see the RAID array since it had to boot from it, and it would also see the OSX drive and give me an option to choose my OS.
  3. Is something like this a possibility: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/278184-how-to-chameleon-bootloader-for-windows-changing-the-target-in-avlgosys-hdxy/
  4. Sorry, my system is: i7 3770K @4.5 GHz 16 GB Corsair Dominator RAM @ 2400MHz Gigabyte Z77-UP7 motherboard Dual GTX 690s in quad SLI 2 SSDs in RAID0 with Windows installed 1 SSD with MacOS 10.8.3 installed Seasonic X-1250 power supply I have Win8 on a hardware RAID0 array of 2 SSDs and OSX on a third SSD. They both work great when I choose from the BIOS. OSX and the OSX bootloader options do not detect my onboard hardware RAID array, so I thought their might possibly be a similar option to have on the windows side. That way I could have a graphical or text-based way to choose the OS so that my wife can navigate it easily.
  5. Like the title says, I was wondering if anyone knows of a "bootloader" that works on the Windows 8 partition of my dual boot system. My OSX SSD cannot see the hardware RAID array that Windows 8 is installed on, so I thought perhaps a bootloader on the windows side could see the SSD that I have 10.8.3 installed on? EasyBDC does not see the OSX drive and Acronis OS Selector does not run on Windows 8. I thought I saw something about about a version of Chameleon for Windows but can't find it anywhere.
  6. Is there an option to put a bootloader on a usb drive that would see the onboard RAID array?
  7. Okay, understood. If OSX cannot detect the RAID array, then booting into the Mac HDD wouldn't give me an option to choose between OSes right?
  8. Okay, thank you for your help. Have you heard of anything like Chameleon/Chimera/Clover for Windows? I was hoping to have the RAID array as my boot disk, and then choose between loading up Win8 or OSX on the other SSD.
  9. Hi everyone, I normally run Windows 8 on a RAID0 array of 2 SSDs. I have a third SSD installed that is blank so I decided to install MacOSX on it. I disconnected the 2 SSDs in RAID and installed using one of the well known distros on the third SSD, and it works great! So now I wanted to have a bootloader show up which allows me to choose between Windows and MacOS... but no matter what the RAID array isn't seen. It boots directly into MacOS. I tried Chameleon, Chimera and Clover, but none of them see the Windows RAID array. And when MacOS boots, it reports that the 2 SSDs in the array can't be read. I tried EasyBCD on the Win side and it doesn't boot into OSX (just shows a black screen with a blinking cursor). However, if I set my BIOS boot priority to the RAID array, Windows boots fine, and if I set it to the third SSD it will boot MacOS with those two errors. It seems that OSX and OSX Bootloaders cannot see my hardware RAID. If there isn't a solution for that, is there possibly a bootloader for the windows side that I could install that would see the SSD with OSX on it? I thought I read something about Chameleon for Windows, but I can't find a recent version. System Specs (MacOS detects everything just fine): i7 3770K @4.5 GHz 16 GB Corsair Dominator RAM @ 2400MHz Gigabyte Z77-UP7 motherboard Dual GTX 690s in quad SLI 2 SSDs in RAID0 with Windows installed 1 SSD with MacOS 10.8.3 installed Seasonic X-1250 power supply EDIT: Since this, I have actually formatted and installed with a purchased copy of OSX, but I am still facing the same problem.
