Question Chameleon not showing Ubuntu Install - 03-25-2010, 06:12 PM

Hello, I have successfully installed OSX (10.6), Windows 7, and Ubuntu desktop. I was able to boot into each during installations but after setting the windows partition as "active", I am unable to boot to the Ubuntu installation. It simply does not show up in chameleon during booting (while holding shift).

I followed this tutorial to the "T":
Alternative Triple Boot Guide using Chameleon

OSX and Windows boot perfectly.

Any Ideas?

Thanks much, Carl

What version of NBI did you use? I am surprised you can even boot OS X. With Windows set active, unless you have modified Chameleon as I have described elsewhere, it should boot straight to Windows, bypassing Chameleon all together. I requested that the modification be incorporated into NBI, but I'm not sure whether it made it into 0.8.4pre yet.

Thanks for your reply.

I got it working. I reinstalled Ubuntu. Before setting the Windows partition to active via the usb install drive, I ran gptsync on mac to sync the boot types. Then I booted to Windows (my only option) and set the OSX partition to active. Now all 3 are bootable. Thanks
