ESXI and OSX Bootloaders

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So far, I have been unable to get Chameleon or any other bootloaders to load when I start or reboot my OS X VM. The only reason I am interested in using a seperate bootloader is so I can pass agruments for specefic FrameBuffer Personalities with my VT-d passthrough AMD Radeon gpu - also from my research, having a bootloader like Chameleon will allow me to get HDMI audio working.


Any thoughts?

I've tried to boot the VM using legacy Bios, but when I point the VM to the Clover ISO it just shows 5 lines, the last one mentioning the CDROM. When I boot using EFi, and install Clover, it appears that Clover is completely ignored upon starting the VM.

iFire, I have been unable to get my OS X VM to reognize Chameleon or Clover on boot up. When I load Chameleon to USB, boot off to it via passthrough, it loads initially - but only give me one possible selection, which is itself. It doesn't seem to scan the attached drives which the EFI bios was aware of.


Any thoughts? Maybe I can install something like Clover or rEFI onto another VMDK?
