Chameleon 2.0-RC3 with Snow Leopard and Large Disk support

"This RC3 build is a small update to RC2, but we’re providing the long-awaited proper Snow Leopard extensions loading and a few fixes like 1TB+ disk addressing support. There are also some changes have been made to the graphics enabler and to the smbios patcher. Also you can even build the Chameleon sources under 10.6.

About the new options

SMBIOS
Finally you can specify your smbios.plist location using a device selector prefix like “SMBIOS=rd(0,0)/Extra/smbios.plist”.

VideoROM
You can pass an alternate video ROM image file to the system.

VBIOS
Using this boolean switch, you can control the injection of your video BIOS to device-properties. We got various reports if this switch is really needed to make your graphics device handled correctly by the system."

Why not Meow? Any error code/ kernel panic?

looks like EFI Strings doesn't work for graphic cards anymore!
and it's tedious to boot into x32 mode, and my Sony IDE DVD RW Drive wasn't detected as well...


Going back to the PC-EFI10 mode...
