So I have a perfect little Asus 1005HAB netbook Hackintosh dual booter running 10.6.5. I installed OS X, then Windows.

Unfortunately, since I dual boot, I have to go through EasyBCD then Chameleon to boot OS X.

Is there any way I can just 'skip' EasyBCD or replace it with the Chameleon bootloader?

Chameleon looks a lot cleaner and has more options for booting than EasyBCD.

 

Thanks

You can do this using the terminal when booting with iatkos 10.5.7

 

So boot with iatkos 10.5.7 (as it got chameleon as seperate install )

 

After that open the terminal from utilities on the menu bar and terminal

 

In that enter that following

 

diskutil list

 

It will list the harddisk and its partition

Make sure which drive has mac partition

 

then enter

 

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 - 0 here is the harddisk number and you have to change for yours

 

flag 1 - 1 is the partition number and you have to change to reflect yours

 

write - ignore the error and enter

 

update

 

exit

 

reboot.

 

After that you can see chameleon bootloader.Now if windows do not boot then boot with windows dvd and repair startutp problems.

Thats it.
