New Chameleon Announced!

I have now defected to the AnV kernel, for no good reason. There is no difference that I can tell from using 9.5.0 Voodoo Final.

 

Just read the documentation (the thread) before installing it, and be careful it doesn't turn your Hackintosh into a Mac Book Pro. Unless that's what you want. I think AnV has a fetish and secretly wants all hackintoshes to be Mac Book pros.

 

I have AnV kernel installed and my hackintosh turned into an iMac7,1 which I love it, if you see that you hack turned into a MacBook, it is easy to change the configuration name.

I know, I'm using ChameleonSM and mine is set up as iMac9,1.

So I'm using -nomacmodeloverride with the kernel since ChameleonSM already takes care of that. I haven't tried using both at the same time..

 

AnV's first 9.6.0 kernel did the MacBook Pro thing by itself on my last install. Plus in the logs I found that something was looking for something in users/Andy, which I wasn't very happy about.

 

I saw that AnV has made his own SMBIOS injector too, maybe I should try that out. ChameleonSM doesn't have the board-id and board-manufacturer overrides.

 

/edit

 

I've gone back to using Chun Nan's AppleSMBIOSEFI, Voodoo 9.5.0 and Chameleon 10.12.

Hi

Did someone say this is now released?

 

I think the upcoming features are being discussed; however, the final release has not been put out for public consumption. I assume you will see that as a headline on the insanelymac home page.

Installed this yesterday and it seems hit or miss sometimes it hangs and sometimes it boots right in. I can select my 3 versions of os-x no problem but I cant seem to boot into xp-64 it gives me a loader error but i can boot into drive when chosen as first boot device in bios. I also cannot boot into my kubuntu same as with xp still bootable if selected as first boot device. It also shows all volumes on drives as bootable even if they are not. If i could load both xp and kubuntu and possibly windows 7 with it reliably it really would be the best thing since sliced bread.

I got this to boot ubuntu 9.04 from an EXT4 partition. All I did was just install grub to the partition boot sector.

I'm using Acronis to do the Multi-boot (some oses on disk0, some on disk1), right now. But I'm pretty sick of that Windows7 always kill the AcronisOsSelector periodically. So I'd like to try Chameleon 2. Just downloaded the file "Chameleon-2.0-r431.pkg.zip". And what now?

 

Which OS should I install (/set active) it in to have that selection screen when boot? Or should I just make a blank partition on disk0s1 to do it? or....... I had never try grub before, so I don't know how it work in relation to Chameleon.

 

Any step by step instruction can help me understand how it work.

 

Thanks

 

Thomas
