I had to reinstall my Windows partition, which broke my bootloader. No worries, I created a chameleon boot usb and used it to boot my Mountain Lion partition. From there I ran multibeast to reinstall the bootloader (which usually works just fine) but upon reboot, the chameleon on my disk gives me a black screen when I select my Mac partition. If I attempt to boot using chameleon on usb, Mac boots just fine. What am I missing?

I fixed my problem by simply installing chimera from here:

but now HFS+ drives don't "highlight" in the bootloader. They can still be selected, there is just no graphical indication that they are selected. Very odd, but useable. Maybe someone could help me with this minor graphical issue?

EDIT: I fixed the graphical problem just by switching themes. Carry on...
