- Is there any way to change it so that Chameleon doesn't load an OS unless you specifically select it?

I've tried changing the default booting OS, but haven't had any luck with that at this point.

i installed chameleon and there are no files for it and it does work to boot anything but leopard any ideas?

Paradoxgrowth, IIRC, yes, that's what I did. I haven't run OS X in a while though, so I don't remember for sure, but I know I used the Instant Menu.

blatzja, Yes there are, but I can't remember where. I've been contemplating rebuilding my netbook and putting OS X back on it, so if I do that, I'll post what I find again for the location of the files. It can be done though, as that's how I had mine done for a long time.

thank you anguish. I was able to successfully get the instant menu going.

blatzja, everytime i have issues booting apple i use the boot cd from mechdrew. you should be able to download it on his site. you could try booting from the cd. if you can try reinstalling chameleon from apple part.
