No success

Im glad some of you have made it that far! As for me, I am unable to boot from the flash drive, it gives me EBIOS read error, as if its reading from a bad disk. I have used the recovery from a ISO and installed chameleon onto it, all with no succes! anyone have any ideas? Im using a sandisk cruzer 4gb on a striker ii extreme mobo

I donīt know about this EBIOS error but i suggest converting the iso file to dmg first using diskutil. Then you need diskutil to check that new dmg before recovering it to the usb drive. Install chameleon and it should work..

Which image format do you have to use when converting ISO to DMG (compressed, sparse, ...)?

I've tried using the iPC ISO directly and never got anything bootable, the PC would attempt to boot from the stick, but all I got was a blinking cursor.

My previous attempts went like this...

- I had created 1 journaled partition on my 8GB stick with MBR
- Restored from ISO with Erase Destination unchecked - if checked it complained about the image (source needs to be imagescanned/scanned)
- Installed EFI loader with OSX86Tools

If you want to boot from a CD/DVD you should use non-compressed image. If you cant boot from it after burning ISO image to the DVD - i would suggest you to burn it again, slower. It should boot so probably either your ISO is broken or the DVD didnt burn correctly ?

The ISO is working fine from CD, but I would rather use a USB stick for faster installation. Problem is that I can't get it to work since the stick hangs at boot if restored directly from the iPC ISO file.

I used this guide...

He installs the PC_EFI v8 loader from osx86tools. Could be that the loader doesn't work or that the ISO can't be used directly. So I want to convert to DMG first to see if it fixes the problem. But somehow I doubt that.

I patched a Leopard DMG image for the Toshiba L305 Laptop, and it is a LIVE edition so you get a full desktop and everything, then you can use the Carbon Copy Cloner app to clone the USB LIVE Leopard disk to your internal hard drive to install. its perfect. It even displays my correct CPU and RAM info.

Okay I can boot from my flash drive using Chameleon, but once it loads I cannot see my internal hard drive? Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Thanks
