If I boot from a DVD, (let's say TonyMac's iBoot) I get whatever theme iBoot came with. However the install that I have on my hard drive seems to be ignoring any flags I put in the com.apple.boot.plist
Hre is a copy of it:
The one "weird" thing about my setup is that I have 2 drives with the following partitions:
Here is one drive:
x) Boot (Active partition if i remember correctly) It is 200MB, hfs, has chameleon on it, the extra folder etc
1) Windows XP 64
Here is the other drive:
x) "RESERVED" (Windows 7 boot partition created by the OS installer)
1) Windows 7
2) 10.6.7 (Active partition)
The BIOS is set to start from the drive that has XP 64 in it and the active partition is the one called "Boot" described above.
I only get a pretty ugly DOS like boot dialog. It sucks. I have reinstalled Chameleon from TonyMac's multibeast, re-installed RC5 using a package installer I found on insanely mac, tinkered with the com.apple.boot.plist with no luck. As far as I know, the very nice and convenient chameeon prefpane doesn't ask you where is your boot drive but it assumes is on the same drive where the prefpane lives so any changes on it do not modify the plist that's in the drive i am booting from but changes the plist that lives in the drive where OSX (and the chameleon prefpane) lives..
I will be very thankful if anyone is kind enough to provide a possible explanation/solution to this problem using mental retarded proof vocabulary/courses of action. i.e. I'd love to avoid using commands in terminal if that is an option. I know how to open a file in text edit, how to show hidden files (with hide&seek) and how to change permissions to copy paste stuff into folders. I hope those poor skills are enough to get just the default theme showing.
Thanks in advance.
