Hello :)
Just made a dual boot setup for mac&win 8 (separate hdd's) and now have 3 options to select(but only 2 needed) //in the beginning tried to install win 8 in uefi mode, i don't know may be that is the problem... So
Is there a way to fix this?

When i used to use Chimera/Chameleon, i hid all the unnecessary hard disk entries (i.e, Windows partitions) from my Chimera boot menu by editing my org.chameleon.Boot.plist with the hide command e.g,

Code:
<key>Hide Partition</key>
<string>"unwanted HD1" "unwanted HD2"</string>
where unwanted HD1 and unwanted HD2 = your partition name or drive name that you wish hide from your Chimera boot menu (you will need to keep the quotes though)

you will need to name the NTFS partitions in Windows first and then figure out which partition is the partition that allows Windows to load from the Chimera menu so that you keep that and hide the correct Windows partitions in the Chimera boot menu.

I use Clover nowadays so i cannot find my original plist to show you so i hope that this makes sense ;)

Finally fixed it. Maybe it will helps someone:

<key>Hide Partition</key>
<string>"Windows"</string>
<key>Rename Partition</key>
<string>"Зарезервировано системой" "Win 8.1"</string>
