Installing Chameleon to USB stick

Recommended Posts

Advertisement

In your new, much nicer version of your first post you are now referring to a mysterious guide and a "program".

 

Nobody will be able to answer your question unless they already know what guide/program you are talking about.

 

You can use a real Mac or a working Hackintosh to install Chameleon to your USB flash drive. There are plenty of guides for manual install, and also some great automated/point and click installers available.

If you don't have access to a Mac you can probably use this:

You could just burn the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD for Chameleon Bootloader.

And you could have used Transmac (or tried, doesnt always work) to restore the Snow Leo DMG to a USB Drive.

Launch [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with USB plugged in and selected the USB Drive from iBoots chameleon Bootloader.

 

If you got the VM working, use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install a bootloader to a selected HDD/USB.

There are point and click installers for Chameleon available here on IM, use the forum search to find them.

 

I have a manual installation guide up over here:

Just think of your USB flash drive as a normal hard drive.

Yes you can restore it to USB and then you should be able to boot from it.

 

Of course I can't guarantee that it will work with your hardware.

 

Don't try to add kernel extensions to the install DVD itself, it can be done but it's much too complicated. Try to install from it, select a minimum set of kernel extensions to avoid conflicts. You can always fix things post-install, provided drivers are available for your hardware of course.
