I tried making a USB Installer for Mavericks DP1, I prepared a GUID'd 16GB USB key with the Mavericks Installation base and installed Chameleon 2.2 svn r2262 on it. I tried booting it on the following machine:
Core i7 4770 (not 4770K)
Asus Q87M-E motherboard (Intel Q87 chipset)
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1024 MB
BIOS/UEFI settings: disable iGPU, CPU State C, disable Vd-m, disable Vt-x, SATA AHCI mode, USB storate auto mode (also tried force HDD and force CD-ROM), Boot device USB in legacy BIOS mode (also tried UEFI mode).
When it tried to boot off my USB key, I get a text cursor '_' in the upper left conner of the screen, the cursor drops to one line bellow, then it goes closer to the middle of the screen, then it disappears and nothing happens. I never even reach the bootloader's text menu.
I also create an Mavericks installer on a SATA hard drive, put Chameleon on it and tried boot it from an internal SATA controller. Same result.
I know the USB key is properly made since I tested it on my Core 2 Duo system and it boots fine. Could it be a compatibility problem between Chameleon and my motherboard or chipset? All the other posts I see for Haswell systems seem to be based on the Z87 chipset.
I am planning on trying with RevoBoot. I also heard you can use GRUB2 to load the OS X kernel directly?
If any one else with a Q87 system out there can try Chameleon, your results would be appreciated. As would any solution to my problem.
