User:Outragedtony/Creating Chameleon Boot Media
This guide explains how to create CD's and USB drives booting Chameleon 2 with different operating systems. Basic understanding about how Chameleon works is expected. Before creating the boot media, collect the configuration files, kext's and other customizations you will need and organize these files as Chameleon expects them. In short, you should have one root folder containing the stage2 bootloader file and the Extra/... folder with all the other stuff inside.
The Chameleon Boot CD allows you to install Mac OS X with a retail DVD. After Chameleon is booted, switch the CD with the retail OS X DVD and press F5 to rescan the optical drive. Make sure to use Chameleon's "cdboot" instead of the normal "boot" for Hd-installation, and set "Rescan" and "Instant Menu" to yes in com.apple.Boot.plist.
1. Get the open-source burning tool InfraRecorder
2. Select Data CD and add the Chameleon files (cdboot & Extra folder)
3. Go to File -> Project Properties -> Boot
5. Add Chameleon's "cdboot" stage2 and set Emulation Type to "None"
7. Burn the CD
1. Use mkisofs to generate a bootable iso. Run the following command from the level containing Chameleon's root folder (holding cdboot & Extra/):
# mkisofs -R -b cdboot -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o chameleon.iso <chameleon root folder>
2. Burn chameleon.iso
