"Extra" folder doesn't exist (iDeneb v1.6)
« on: January 13, 2010, 11:59:29 PM »

I have installed iDeneb v1.6 Lite (Leopard 10.5.8) and as the option I chose to install the Chameleon 2 bootloader. This works fine except that I wanted to change the boot options like "Graphics Mode", so I look around and from what I can gather I am supposed to have a folder called "Extra" in the root of my Mac partition. This folder doesn't exist, and and I even tried visiting the old "/Library/Preferences/System Configuration/" but it only shows:
Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
<key>Kernel Flags</key>

Is it possible to recreate this "Extra" folder somehow, or can I reinstall the bootloader to generate the items I need?

Any help would be appreciated, as I would like to change the themes, and boot options :)

Thank you

Thank you, I followed what you said and have found that I was also on a MBR scheme. I have reinstalled chameleon on my mac partition and it has created the "Extra" folder, which I have now successfully customized. Thank you for your help.

Once you've decided if OSX86 is for you (finish trying it out with iDeneb), feel free to pm me if you'd like some help getting a retail disk install on your machine.

FTR: You were moved here by the faq/spam filter, there's nothing to take personally. If you decide to stick around, feel free to start a genuine thread or follow an existing one. 

BTW: iDeneb and other distros are not supported here. You'll have to seek support in other forums.
