Chameleon + MBR ?


2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi gurus! My situation:


Bootloader Chameleon 2RC1, MAC1: OS 10.5.6; MAC2 not working


diskutil list



0: FDisk_partition_scheme *232.9 Gi disk0 ( == MBR)

1: Apple_HFS MAC1 116.6 Gi disk0s1 ( == journaled)

2: Apple_HFS MAC2 116.3 Gi disk0s2 ( == journaled)


Don't know why but my AMD box always boots to the second partition MAC2 by default which is not working. I always have to stop the bootprocess to change the partition to MAC1.


So what can I do to start automatically to Partition1? Can I delete Partition2 without any modification?. Where can I configure that bootoption? It is not depending on any of my /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist, cause I tried to change that already. How to modify the default Partition?



thanx in advance

Not really sure how to do it outside the scope of the boot.plist file but here it is anyway:


<key>Default Partition</key>



where 0 is the HDD number

and 3 is the partition number


And i believe that you can safely delete the non-working partition as long as Chameleon is installed somewhere else.


Hope that helps.
