Chameleon 2

- modifications preloaded by bootloader - bootloader: chameleon

- advantage: "vanilla" os x install, can be easily updated - KISS, all patches etc in one place -» most up-to-date, feature-rich and actively developed solution

- based on EFI, bootloader "emulates" EFI - actual EFI setup not required with chameleon, can store files on osx or other partition

- real EFI partition managed by Chameleon: seperated from osx install, osx install can be wiped while keeping perosnal quirks in place - but: adds on complexity

- can also be done with chameleon files on osx partition (backing up chameleon files, reinstall, copy) . . . .

1. boot with chameleon 2. install from retail disc 3. install chameleon

Partitioning
