Hi Dudes,
I have got a half working dualboot WinXT + OSx based on Iatkos 10.5.7 with Chameleon 2.rc3
That install hasn't got any extras/com.apple.Boot.plist.

I wanted to customize the preferred partition and entered a new extras/com.apple.Boot.plist.

The preferred partition worked like a charm, but I were stuck at grey apple screen.

Apparently the sole presence of an extras/com.apple.Boot.plist (even the default one from the Chameleon website) leads to the gery apple screen.

Any clue?
Thanks in advance

You should upgrade to Chameleon 2.0 RC5.

Folder must be named extra, not extras.

com.apple.Boot.plist can become corrupt, causing boot failure.

Post the contents of your com.apple.Boot.plist, in code tags.
