Unattended boot failing
« on: May 25, 2011, 11:38:09 AM »
Hi thr PpL!
My rig has snow leo by hazard on an amd cpu.
Following is the plist content & I edited the plist from the root user, still won't work out!

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">

</dict>
</plist>

I did follow steps from an old http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,1506.0.html no luck  :(
That thread helped me to recognize the right partition though  8)

The previous partition on which the OS was installed conked out, Inspite of the changes made onto the plist, it still is booting to the previous partition by default.
Plist location I am making the changes to is \library\preferences\system configuration

Thanks in advance  :)

Hi ultimo

I can't help you with regard to a Hazard installation as I don't know how and where Chameleon was installed.

But for a 'standard' installation of Chameleon you will have an /Extra folder at the root of a partition of your choice (normally an OS X system partition). Inside that /Extra folder will be a com.apple.Boot.plist which you use to give instructions to Chameleon. It is there that you would want to use the Default Partition boot option.
