[SOLVED] Problems with SSD, seperate Chimera partition

Hey :)

I just built my hackintosh with Multibeast. It works great. I have two issues though:

I installed Chimera and Mavericks on a SSD (Samsung Evo 256 GB). This doesn't work, as it gives me an error on boot before Chimera loads. I can boot though from the USB Stick into the system on the SSD and also when I installed Chimera on a second HD. What am I doing wrong?

I want to install all necessary files of Chimera on seperate dedicated small partition, to have a pure vanilla osx installation on a second partition. How can I set up Chimera that way?

Thanks for an answer,

Professor©

Problems with SSD, seperate Chimera partition

I had the same problem to install the boot loader on the SSD. ( something to do with block size )
These are the steps I followed :
( best done booting from another drive or so )

sorry didn't keep all the instruction it seemed.
you need the boot1h file. Not sure if it's on unibeast under /usr/standalone/i386.

you can get it from the latest chimera package like this :
( # pkgutil --expand mystubbornpackage.pkg path/to/expand )
# pkgutil --expand Chimera\ 2.2.1.pkg ./theFiles
# ls
theFiles
# cd theFiles/
# ls
Distribution Resources chimeraV22.pkg
# cd chimeraV22.pkg/
# ls
Bom PackageInfo Payload Scripts
ITS IN THE Payload FILE
# cat Payload | gunzip -dc |cpio -i
# cd usr/standalone/i386
THEN COPY TO YOUR SSD osx partition. check with diskutil list, in my case :
( MAKE SURE THAT PARTITION IS UNMOUNTED )
# sudo dd if=./boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2

2+0 records in
2+0 records out
1024 bytes transferred in 0.000372 secs (2751420 bytes/sec)

Ready to boot ! I had to clean my caches kernel and user....
Hope it helps a bit
