  1. Would you be able to explain how to VNC from a Windows to OSX? I've tried 3 different VNC programs and I'm just not understanding it.
  2. I too have been experiencing the same problem, hoping you guys could help. Windows 7 won't go into hibernate, it just turns black for a bit then comes back on. This can be annoying if I forget, shut it into sleep, and 10-20 minutes later it goes from sleep to hibernate and just turns right back on. I've restored the MBR to the default Windows 7 loader, and then Windows 7 successfully hibernates. I then used a live CD to go into my OSX partition and used Chameleon Wizard to install the newest Chameleon to boot0md. I then went back into Windows 7, tested hibernate, and it doesn't work again. I've used Easeus partition master to check if windows 7 is active, but it's status is "boot" so for that reason I can't change it to active. Any other partition on my drive I can change to active.
  3. I made this months ago, been meaning to post, turned it into a few different versions here, hopefully you all enjoy! The 4th one over is the original.
  4. Ah well silly me, it looks like I just wasn't pressing F8 enough, it looks like all you have to do is select windows and continuously press F8 within the 1 second interval before it begins to boot. Hope this helps anyone else that couldn't get past this simple mistake.
  5. Is there a command or way of booting windows into safe mode when chameleon is my boot manager?

    I'm on the go so I don't really have time to search for links, but did you download and follow the guide in the form of a 20mb zip file? Inside the zip is a folder for each step you follow containing the required file. The whole thing is just copy/paste. For one of the files you do have to plug in your EDID, unconverted. Plisteditor will convert it for you. I was struggling too until I found that zip folder guide.
  7. I've just burnt Windows 8 developer preview on a disk to add a 3rd partition to my Acer 5740g. Well I didn't realize this until now, but my computer isn't automatically reading disks while I have Chameleon bootloader installed. My bios is set to read the CD first, then the HDD. I put the Windows 8 CD in, it took a few seconds to read and then went to Chameleon.The CD is not an option to boot from, it only shows my 2 partitions. I tried putting the iAtkos l2 CD in and it DID read that instead of going to my HDD's chameleon. I then tested it by putting in my retail Windows 7 disk and it reads, but hangs at a black screen with a blinking underscore line at the top left. Is there a way to show my inserted CD as one of my boot options through chameleon, or another option to fix this?
  8. Can I make an Exposé dock icon?

    Bump. Isn't there a very very basic script I can make and put it on my dock?
  9. For something that would seem so simple I just can't seem to find it anywhere. How can I make a shortcut on my dock to Exposé, rather than clicking F11.

    AHA! So Chameleon 2.0 r875 doesn't use org.chameleon.boot.plist, it uses com.apple.boot.plist. The solution is simple: Here's how to edit any settings/themes you want with the patched Chameleon 2 r875 for Radeon 5650! -Use Chameleon Wizard to change whatever settings/themes you wish, just like you normally would. -Go to /Extra and make a copy of your org.chameleon.boot.plist, and rename it to com.apple.boot.plist. -Next time you reboot, the changes will work! You could also open com.apple.boot.plist through chameleon wizard, however each time you click out of the tab it goes back to org.chameleon.boot.plist by default, I don't think there's a way to change that. Also, doing it this way won't change your themes, it only changes your settings, better off with the simple 3 steps above.

    Did you ever try it? I tried Chimera 1.7 and it hangs when booting up. Then when it finally does I'm just stuck at a black screen. If I try with HDMI plugged in the same thing happens, but on the TV it's a white screen instead. I couldn't seem to find version 1.6 anywhere, I wanted to give that one a try just incase. If you get stuck trying to boot up all you have to do is put in your iAtkos CD (or any CD that will bypass your HDD's bootloader) to get into your OSX and successfully change settings/replace working bootloader again.

    THANK YOU!!!! IT WORKED!! it took me a week of daily searching, then the past 3 hours of trying to understand hex code and converting to base64. Many errors were ran into, I was just about to quit, then I discovered your 21MB file with the HOW TO in sample files. I was able to plug in my EDID and the rest was copy/paste. THANKS SO MUCH!! edit: so it appears this version doesn't use chameleon.boot.plist, atleast not located under /Extra. That means settings can't be manually managed. I've searched for "chameleon.boot.plist" and only 4 come up, one under /Extra, and the rest are backups. Does that mean this version of Chameleon doesn't use it at all, and can't be modified?? Are all you guys who got your 5650 working still using the old Chameleon 2.0 r875? ^^^Solution on Post #114^^^ I've also found that HDMI doesn't work. With HDMI plugged in it makes my laptop go black and it shows a blank default OSX Lion wallpaper on the TV (although it's differen't than my currently set wallpaper). There's no mouse, and nothing at all I can do. When I unplug HDMI my screen on my laptop comes back and I can interact with it again.
  13. The problem for me is I can't get past step 9. I get an error when copy/pasting it exactly as shown in the tutorial. If someone could "sync outline" my values for me, or tell me if I'm doing anything wrong. Here's all of my information if it helps: "DisplayProductID" = 1815 "DisplayVendorID" = 1970170734 "IODisplayPrefsKey" = "IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/P0P2@1/IOPCI2PCIBridge/PEGP@0/.Display_boot/display0/AppleDisplay-756e6b6e-717" EDID= 00FFFFFFFFFFFF0030E401CF0000000000120103802213780AABB59F59549626165054000000010101010101010101010101010101013E1C56A0500016303020350058C210000019000000000000000000000000000000000000000000FE004C4720446973706C61790A2020000000FC004C503135365748322D544C453100DC I GOT IT!!! All i had to do was follow the instructions using the sample files in the 21mb download here: http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=1502 plugged in my EDID, and the rest was copy/paste. I'm SOOOOO HAPPY!!!!
  14. Well I just downloaded Chameleon Wizard for the first time and that's a great alternative. As long as it has a theme manager I don't need it to show in Chameleon's settings.
  15. I've downloaded a bunch of awesome themes, and copied them to my /extra/themes folder. I did notice however it doesn't update that they're there in the chameleon settings, it just shows the 5 that come with it. How can I add/remove themes that actually show in the theme droplist? In the meantime I've just been copying the folders and renaming them to default. Here I've taken a screenshot. As you can see I also have 3 themes that I've deleted from my themes folder that still show in the Chameleon settings.
