Hi,

I just installed Snow Leopard retail on a 320 Gb Toshiba HDD, and now there's something up with Chameleon. I installed and did everything i could find, and I still get

boot0: GPT

boot0: HFS+

boot0: error

 

I can boot with EmpireEFI disk, but I get errors like

USBF: [some #] AppleUSBEHCI/UHCI (0xNUMBERS) START UNABLE TO INITIALIZE UIM

It'll load, but it seems odd that that's there.

But my main concern is the BOOT0: ERROR thing.

HELP!

Sam

Thanks

 

I have a GATEWAY NV5425 with CORE2DUO and GMAX4500 video card/chipset (?)

Best bet would be to google NawComs Bootcd and burn/boot with that. I would say there is something wrong with your bootloader. I would recommend installing Chameleon 2 rc5, there are many revisions available. If you have an EFI partition then it probably needs reformatting and then reinstalling the bootloader. Hope it helps... I did something to my EFI partition and was getting a boot:0 error that constantly filled the screen and I reformatted the efi partition. Here is a copy/paste of howto on the creation of EFI, etc. If unsure google.

 

Snow Leopard:

This has to be done manually (from command-line):

The X is the drive identifier on which snow has been installed

and/or the one you 'd want to use for booting (e.g.: USB).

You can find that identifier with the diskutil list command.

 

* sudo -s

* newfs_hfs -v EFI /dev/diskXs1

* fdisk -f boot0hfs -u -y /dev/rdiskX

* dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXs1

* mkdir /Volumes/EFI

* mount_hfs /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI

* cp boot /Volumes/EFI

 

 

If you have windows on another partition, do not follow those steps in blue

 

Blue-> * fdisk -e /dev/rdiskX

* p

* f 1

* w

* y

* q

* mkdir /Volumes/EFI/Extra

* mkdir /Volumes/EFI/Extra/10.6/Extensions

* mkdir /Volumes/EFI/.fseventsd

* touch /Volumes/EFI/.fseventsd/no_log

 

Then, u 'd want to copy your extra kexts and/or kernel etc...

 

* cp mach_kernel /Volumes/EFI/

* cp Extensions.mkext /Volumes/EFI/Extra/10.6/Extensions/

* cp *.aml /Volumes/EFI/Extra/

* cp com.apple.boot.plist /Volumes/EFI/Extra/

* cp smbios.plist /Volumes/EFI/Extra/

* cp Themes /Volumes/EFI/Extra/

 

Finally you 'd need to unmount the EFI partition

 

* umount -f /Volumes/EFI

* rm -rf /Volumes/EFI

* fsck_hfs /dev/diskXs1
