Great work as usual here but you may want to add a note that this:

<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>

Is not going to work on Sandy Bridge CPU's :)

I believe it's not the problem, it just won't boot the selected partition after timeout. You can try it.

 

I have tried to eliminate the string from the CABP, but it does not work, the PC goes in restart, but if I put as boot it begins them the Lion disc from the bios, all works well...strange ...help ???

It's not strange, Chameleon r700 is not able to boot Lion, it will reboot. The first Lion capable Chameleon was r759.

 

I have a raid with two SSD, boot the Camaleon r700

You don't need r759, you can use any newer version, like the one linked in the OP. But you have to install it to your boot partition. It won't help installing it to your Lion partition if you are booting from another volume which has an older version.

OP = Opening Post (first post of this topic)

 

If you're going to install it to the RAID volume, you have to do it manually, like you did with r750.

Maybe Chameleon (not the OS, just the boot loader) is installed in a primary partition? It doesn't even start if installed in a extended partition, at least never worked for me.

You don't need r759 (exactly), can be any version newer than that.

 

ok, I have created mine installer (raid software) with Package Maker, with the r769, you want to see?

 

The r769 is compatible with Snow and Lion ?

After the restoration, open the restored partition, navigate to System/Installation, delete the Packages link and create a folder with the same name, Packages.

 

This I can not. Why can it be?

Thanks for the reply, MaLd0n. I have and still the same. Do not leave the option to move to the Trash. What I can do? Edit. After three or four tries, I succeeded. Thanks again.

This explains it all, you are using GRUB to load Chameleon's boot.

 

It would not work if you had Chameleon's boot0 (MBR) - boot1h (extended partition) - boot (extended partition).

 

The original boot0 code has support for logical partitions, but to be able to support GPT+MBR partitioned disks using a single boot0 code, we removed the extended partiton support. Maybe an ultimate ASM pro could implement all in 440 bytes :P

 

In your case you may try to use another primary boot loader and chainload your hfs+ partition by adding a new chainload entry in grub or add a chain0 entry in boot.ini when using NT loader or simply add a new OS X entry with EasyBCD - this will install chain0 by itself.
