Boot volume disappeared from Chameleon menu

After a normal reboot, my boot volume disappeared from the Chameleon boot menu. During the run before the reboot, I used Migration assistant to transfer applications to another Mac. I don't know if it's the issue here, because the machine was the source and I believe Migration Assistant doesn't change anything in the source.


I did the following:

  • booted into an install medium, Repair Disk (there were no errors) and reinstalled Chameleon
  • tried to boot with Chameleon installed on a different disk
  • replaced the kernel with backup

If I press Enter, I see the kexts being loaded (so it can see the partition) and then it reboots.


Please help me fix this without reinstalling...
