Request for sanity check
« on: April 27, 2009, 03:46:47 PM »
Rather than installing Chameleon 2 onto an existing setup, I am setting out a new layout so I have more freedom of choice.

Requirements are

   Working off 2 identical HDs
   MacOS as main OS software mirrored
   Vista 64 (mainly to watch BluRay).  Doesnt need to be mirrored because it rots so quickly anyway
   MacOS 2 for fixing MacOS (because I like to play)


I propose

   disk0s   GUID label
   disk0s1   EFI - with chamelion installed as putting it in the mirror may be flakey.  including a usable stable /Extra/Extensions
   disk0s2   Vista64 - single partition installation.  Can't do much damage here (like writing ntldr where it wasn't wanted)
   disk0s3   MacOS - Mirror 1 of main MacOS system.  Including latest maybe unstable /Extra/Extensions
   disk0s4   Data - Stripe 1,  Odd stripes

   disk1s   GUID label
   disk1s1   EFI - with chamelion installed as putting it in the mirror may be flakey.  including a usable stable /Extra/Extensions
   disk1s2   MacOS_B - including latest stable /Extra/Extensions.  For when I've broken MacOS
   disk1s3   MacOS - Mirror 2 of main MacOS system.  Including latest maybe unstable /Extra/Extensions
   disk1s4   Data - Stripe2,  Even stripes


   first use using existing custom boot_132 disk and MacOS install DVD to partition the disks and set up Apple Raid and HFS+ partitions

   then install Vista64

   then install MacOS_B  using boot_132 disk

   then install MacOS     using boot_132 disk

   then boot MacOS_B    using boot_132 disk and use it to configure Chameleon 2 including /Volumes/MacOS/Extra

   and then hopefully boot MacOS


Any comments, particularly pointing out why this isn't going to work,  or what might be more stable,  greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in anticipation
