Hi,

 

I followed your guide and everything works flawlessly. Thank you very much for your guide.

 

I have only one thing to know, its about rboot LE CD.So is there any chance that I could boot normally from my mac disk without CD.

 

Please advice.

 

 

Many Thanks in Advance

Install the Chimera Bootloader

 

Hi Ranbir,

 

Firstly Thanks for your reply.

 

Sorry,I forgot to update here that my laptop is running flawlessly with which I copied and merged all the EXTRA folder contents (including hidden files) of rboot LE CD to my MAC disk EXTRA folder.

 

Before this I tried chimera install by checking at iatkos L2 installation window, but it didn't work for me. Anyways I will try your solution for next job.

 

The only bugs i have at the moment are...

1. Shutdown (after shutdown still have to do long press to turnoff completely).

2. Sleep (freezes)

3. Laptop battery power management icon (not showing)

 

I tried ACPI kexts install, but every time I install it gives me bugs like missing sound/USB.

 

Many Thanks.
