    I have installed chameleon, and when I restart it says no bootable device found. I am using 1 hard drive, with a 1mb boot partition for chameleon. I have blessed the Boot partition and it boots as default. I can't find specific instructions for editing the files in the extra folder. I have added the following lines:

    org.chameleon.Boot.plist
    <key>Default Partition</key>
    <string>hd(0,2)</string>

    Is the serial for smbios.plist required? Any info on adding that will be helpful, also is my serial the one in hardware overview in about this mac? I don't see exactly how to add my serial to that file.

    My goal is to boot my current Snow Leopard installation in 64 bit mode.

    I am using a Mac Pro 1,1.

    Hello!

    Where you have:

    Code:
    org.chameleon.Boot.plist
    <key>Default Partition</key>	
    <string>hd(0,2)</string>
    I found greater success actually calling the boot partition by name - so say your Snow Leopard partition is called 'bellotto'…

    Code:
    org.chameleon.Boot.plist
    <key>Default Partition</key>	
    <string>bellotto</string>
    Just make sure the partition has just plain characters and no spaces in it and all should be well.
