how to Repair vista without losing Chameleon ?
« on: April 18, 2009, 03:59:15 PM »
good day to you
first of all I'm sorry i opened 2 topics but this is something else
i had a lot of issues with Chameleon and vista and now I'm facing new problem
after every time i repair vista I'm losing Chameleon and my leopard and then need to fix leopard to get back the Chameleon menu but than I'm losing vista again it's like cat and mouse and i can't figure out what to do
my situation now is :
1. fire up my lenovo
2. first screen : Chameleon (with macosx and windows ntfs option)
3. if i choose macosx everything fine and booting to mac
4. if i choose windows I'm going into windows boot manger (2 options windows vista or macos)
5. if i choose macosx I'm back to Chameleon screen
6. if i choose windows I"m getting to my nightmare with error with winload.exe

i must tell you I'm about giving up  :-\ :-\ :-\
please help my to put an end to this and have great boot with Chameleon

just to let you understand what I'm doing :
to fix leopard and get back Chameleon I'm doing this - threw vista bootloader chose leopard and in leopard using terminal : fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
              flag 3 (my leopard partition)
              update
              write
              quit
to fix vista (winload.exe problem) boot with my vista dvd and in repair menu choosing command prom :
 diskpart
 select partition 1 (my windows partition)
 active
and do rapier start up

Sorry that ya having trouble but the only way i found to avoid trouble like this was to have one operating system per separate hard drive. Chameleon 2 lets me boot into the systems very easily. Hope you can fix it.
