USB Key to boot USB DVD - does our mobo prevent it? - 04-13-2009, 06:46 PM
I've been trying to turn a 64MB USB key I have into a Chameleon 2.0 boot key for installing OS X from an external DVD drive. I have successfully installed from this USB DVD before, but I had used the Boot132 image to create a boot CD, then swapped in the DVD. I can get Chameleon booting just fine from the USB key (using the same Extras folder as bmaltais' recent bootmaker) but when I boot from it, it only shows the partitions on the key and my internal SSD as boot options. I'm trying to figure out if this is a failing of my USB DVD drive, of Chameleon, or if our BIOS somehow doesn't always report USB optical drives.
