Bootloader freezes if I HIT any key
« on: May 16, 2009, 02:34:35 PM »
Hallo Forum. (My first Post here ... :-) )

I don't know if it is a bug, or a "user error" but I don't know any other solution more.

I am running 10.5.7 (KALYWAY 10.5.1 DVD -> ... -> 10.5.7) on a P5W DH Deluxe Mainboard, and fixed my two graficcards (3 Screens) via /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist and this GFX Strings - DUAL CARDS - How To.

I installed Chameleon 2.0RC1 via GUI Istaller DMG file. tryed view different istallations (With GUI, or Without, some kext, ... but got allways the samre result. When I press any key at bootup, the screen freeze in the GUI boot or in nonGUI rotating Cursor comes and the boots stops. :-(

So I am not able to choose -v -f or nother HD or so. The Screen simply don't change.

If I do nothing, the boot goes normaly ...

What is also strange the HD lamp is shining.

I have a second question with the "com.apple.Boot.plist" which one is now used? The one in the /Extras Folder or the old one in "/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration" folder, or both?

I can post more infos, ehrn requested.

Some hint would be nice.

Does still nobody (exept me) have the problem, that Computer freeze, when You hit any key (during Chameleon screen)?

Seems I am alone with this problem ...
