    Hi rampagedev! I’m confused by this Chameleon Bootloader Install guide and the picture of the Chameleon’s Installer settings we can find into the X79 DMG. Should we install Chameleon with the method above or by the package?

    Hi Rampagedev! I am following your guide and am having a little trouble. I cannot locate the trunk/SYM folder. Could you tell me the exact path to find it? It’s not in my users folder…

    Hay, I’m tiring to excicute this line in your guide – 20. Type in the following: ./fdisk440 -e /dev/disk0
    But when I do it says resource busy, why is it saying that? I have not found out how to fix that error and would really appreciate some help. Thanks!

  8. Hello rampagedev, I am getting this error at the end of Part 2 in Terminal.

    Any ideas…. I’ve been dealing with “kdp_poll: no debugger device” on the start up so I can only run my system thru the motherboard. The gfx card is a GTX 760, i bought it thinking my previous gfx had failed. I’ve been searching all over the web and I stumbled upon your site. I’m still running into issues with the trunk folder in Part 2. Thank you for your time and this site. I hope to get this bootloader on so I can follow your Nvidia retail Drivers for 10.9.2 post. Thanks again.

      Use all caps for make…

      • I have the same issue as the above user and I have done caps MAKE and it spits out the same error. I’ve done sudo on these commands as well. I have also deleted my TRUNK folder and retried the whole guide. I am on 10.9

        Report it to the error section on the boot loader site.

    When I restart my computer, I always am brought to a startup screen where the bootflags are entered – I have to press enter for the system to keep booting. Is there a way to have an automated countdown where enter will be pressed automatically? (I think Chimera has this – there is a 5 second countdown before automatically proceeding…) This would be very helpful for when troubleshooting graphics issues and I am using screen sharing to work on the main machine that is in another room. Thank you.

  10. Hey, I need some help. I can’t get the boot0 error command fix to do anything.
    dd if=boot1h of=/dev/identifier
    It just says something about no such file or directory I think. I used the download and followed part 3. Can anybody help me?
