    How do I use Chimera to dual boot my Hackintosh/CustoMac ?


    I have 2 SSDs in my CustoMac. One is for Windows 8, and the other one is for OSX. I have installed Chimera. However, when I boot up my Hackintosh from my OSX SSD, Chimera doesn't pop up. How do I use Chimera properly?

    I'm not sure what your problem is but I'll try to provide you a lead.
    I have a similar dual boot setup with 2 SSDs. I used multibeast to create the correct Chimera-based bootloader. It didn't require any special treatment. I was able to leave both of my SSDs[OSX and Windows' ones] connected when I used Multibeast.

    Try this: Physically disconnect your Windows SSD. Execute Multibeast on the OSX SSD. You might do it in stages. For the first use of Multibeast check your audio and network. Restart your PC. Do you get a Chameleon/TonyMac86 Bootscreen with the OSX SSD shown? If yes, let it boot the OSX version on the SSD. If no what happens?

    When you are debugging a problem with booting, always use the verbose kernel flag "-v". When the bootloader screen first appears type "-v" it will be automatically positioned in the right place on the bootloader screen.

    You may have already known this and tried installing the Chameleon/Chimera bootloader using Multibeast. You also may know about asserting kernel flags such as -v for verbose. If so I may not understand your problem. Folks often take a picture of their screen to better explain problems with bootup.
