it's what you select to install, best way to test it is to install it on a USB flash drive fix all the configs as you go on and when it gets to a level that is ok for you then you install it to your main drive (it sometimes over write chameleon, it depends where you put it) copy your settings over and reboot! ;)

kyndder from the thread replied to your problem and I quote


The boot1 error may be due to an installation error or disk with 4k sectors...

"error or disk with 4k sectors"

Para esse problema, o usu?rio ter? que copiar o boot1h para a EFI do HD em quest?o, com o OSX desmontado, somente desta forma ele vai evitar esse erro, Andr?.

why new version can't hide the special partition. I used ver.1000 before and it work.

Also it can't recognize the win8 partition.

Thank you for you hard work. Any way, it's great.

I get installation failed at the end. Is there a trick to install this properly? I am trying to install this on my 2GB USB stick.
