First of all, I have to say thanks to this forum and its members. I had a 100% working install on my refurbished HP HPE-350T with and MSI-MS7613 mobo.

 

I deleted a file named "boot" from the SL partition, I restarted a few hours afterwards, and got the boot1 error. I did some searching and found a post saying that the deletion of this file is related to this error. I can still boot to SL using and iAtkos disc I made a few weeks back, so I can get to the terminal pretty easilt. Can the 'boot' file be replaced or recreated to get everything working? Or would a reinstall be the best option?

Are you able to boot into OSX HDD partition via [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] F8 menu or not? If you are able, download tonymac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], select easyboot option, eject [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd than reboot and see if the magic will happen ;)

blackosx,

"For this install guide, the technical installation of Chameleon involves installing three files and creating one folder.

• Write boot0 to the first 440 bytes of the Master Boot Record (MBR) of the drive.

• Write boot1h to the partition’s bootsector which Chameleon will be installed to.

• Write boot to the partition which will hold Chameleon’s /Extra folder.

• Create a folder named Extra

So for any modified Chameleon bootloader you come across, depending on what’s been changed, you need either all three boot0, boot1h and boot files, or sometimes just the boot file if you already have uptodate boot0 and boot1h files installed."

 

This can be done manually.

Unpack whatever version of Chameleon you used already, copy 'boot' which is in the i386 folder.

It seems to me that you only need to unzip the archive from a chameleon release and copy the file named boot to the root of your osx partition =)
