  1. Yeah I messed around with a few things for a while and in the end decided to just shift some data around and install Windows on a seperate drive. Everything works fine now with VMWare. Thanks for confirming you saw the same issue.
  2. I'm wondering if anyone can help me get my Windows 7 'bootcamp' working in VMware / Parallels. I have successfully installed Snow Leopard & Windows 7 on the same HD and can boot in to either through Chameleon. Chameleon RC3 is installed on to the Snow Leopard partition. I did not install using this particular guide, but did use the bootcd in order to change the active partition to get SL & W7 accessibile. diskutil list output: /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Snow Leopard 268.4 GB disk0s2 3: Microsoft Basic Data 268.4 GB disk0s3 4: Apple_HFS Data 462.9 GB disk0s4 When VMware or Parallels attempts to boot the Windows install I get the following error: boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: error I have limited knowledge regarding boot strapping, Chameleon, etc so I'm at a loss to what this error is even trying to tell me. Can anyone provide any assistance with this problem? Thanks.
  3. Yep the installer tseug provided assumes you don't install Chameleon to EFI partition. Probably wouldn't be too much to modify it to allow you to select EFI or Standard - I may look at it myself once I get everything setup.
  4. I had this same error. Looking at the log I saw that the /Extra and /Extra/Extensions folders did not exist on my target disk. I don't know if this is because I installed Chameleon as EFI instead of Standard or not. Maybe someone can look more in to it. Also, I haven't finished the install yet to see if selecting EFI is a problem in general. Will comment back in a bit.
  5. Awesome guide. I'm about to replace my Kalaway installation which I have been running for about a year. I'd like to go retail and this will certainly help. At the same time as doing this reinstall, I would like to install Windows 7 and I'm hoping you can answer a few questions regarding that. First, can both OSX (using this method) and Windows 7 exist on the same physical drive or do I need to have two seperate drives? If they can be on the same drive, In which order do they need to be installed? And finally, if they have to be on separate drives, I presume it is okay to install OSX first (on the first drive) and then Windows, but does OSX drive need to be disconnected during the install? Thanks again!
  6. Replace XP w/ 7

    Hi Everyone, I'm wondering if it is possible to replace my Windows XP install with 7 without having to reinstall OSX. I know I would need to format XP partition and do a fresh 7 install, but I'm not sure if I would be able to get back to OSX if I did that. Both XP and OSX are on the same drive as: disk0s1 (XP) and disk0s2 (OSX) Any tips on the best way to go about this.. if it can be done? Thanks.
