Windows 7, GPT and partitions >2TB
« on: November 20, 2009, 10:05:44 AM »
Hi,

I don't have an EFI/UEFI BIOS right now and I'm looking into ways to boot from a GPT partitioned hard drive or RAID array that is larger than 2TB.
I'd like to know, if Chameleon installed to a USB drive would allow me to do that. Thanks a lot in advance for any answers I might get. :)

I dont think so as chameleon just chainloads 7 and 7 by itself cant boot from pure gpt.
Mac OS X 10.5.6 Retail (Updated to 10.5.7) with Chameleon 2.0 RC1+BootIt NextGen 1.86 (MBR Single Drive)
Gigabyte 73PVM-S2H + C2D + 2 Gb
2 SATA HD (AppleAHCIport.kext) + 1 PATA DVD+RW (DarwinATAPort.kext)
Realtek ALC889 (VoodooHDA.kext)
Geforce 8600GTS (EFI String) PS/2 M & KB: VoodooPS2.kext

Actually, the 64-bit version can boot from a GPT disk. I'd still like to know if Chameleon supports booting from such insanely large disks and or partitions. 8)
