With the kind of drives which give this error I don't think you can avoid doing the steps in the guide to manually copy the boot1h file.

Although the newest version of chameleon may be able to these days, I can't recall correctly...

Try this: put the folder 386 in Desktop, open app Terminal and



Look for your boot partition's identifier (diskXsY):EX: disk0s2

diskutil list


Get root access:

sudo su


cd /Users/your user/Desktop/i386


Install boot0 to the MBR:


./fdisk440 -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskX


Install boot1h to the bootsector of the boot partition:


dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY


Copy the file "boot" to the partition:


cp boot /


Set the partition active:


./fdisk440 -e /dev/rdiskX


p <-----> (print a list on screen)

f 2 <-----> (makes partition 2 active) see your Partition

w <-----> (write to disk)

y <-----> (yes)
