  1. Here's how I did it step by step: sudo -s Password: bash-3.2# fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 fdisk: could not open MBR file /usr/standalone/i386/boot0: No such file or directory Enter 'help' for information fdisk: 1> flag 3 Partition 3 marked active. fdisk:*1> write Device could not be accessed exclusively. A reboot will be needed for changes to take effect. OK? [n] y Writing MBR at offset 0. fdisk: 1> exit then restart the computer with windows dvd and repair bootloader windows should boot now and run cmd diskpart select disk 0 select partition 2 active now restart and chameleon should boot now and you should be able boot both
  2. I got dual booting osx and win7 doing this: Boot into snow leopard and use terminal to do these commands fdisk -e /dev/rdiskX flag Z (Z = windows partition number, usually 3) write exit now restart and boot the windows DVD and repair the bootloader restart and windows now should boot right away now in windows, goto start and run cmd do these commands: Diskpart select disk 0 select partition 2 active Restart and chameleon shoulld boot between osx and win7

  4. 10.6.3 Released !

    Installed 10.6.3 here works fine with my setup. Deleted sleepenabler.kext, I don't use sleep on my rig. Video, audio, network all work fine, no problems.
  5. Parts list and OSX Install

    I will take a look into that, there are so many ways to install osx, I was taking the most popular approach.
  6. I'm building my Hackintosh now and got some parts for this project. Just need some advice on PSU and install method. I was thinking of getting a 500 watt psu, is that overkill and using Kalyway 10.5.2 install. Just wanna make sure my parts are compatible with Kalyway install. Would appreciate any other advice.
