Press a key when booting to choose (assuming you installed Chimera). If you want to always choose use Instant Menu by using Chameleon Wizard. You can also change the default with Chameleon Wizard.

That did not work. I have installed Chameleon and Chimera with no luck. Unless I boot using the USB Windows takes over. What Am I missing.
