Would there be any chance of supporting Fusion Drive configurations in a future release of Multibeast? As far as I understand, this involves copying Chimera's boot0 to the Master Boot Record of each constituent physical drive and boot1h, boot and the Extra folder to the hidden boot partitions of each drive (which were created automatically by Core Storage). That sounds relatively easy but I can never be sure these are all in sync and when the machine simply won't boot it is hard to know what is happening and why.

A little help from Multibeast would go a long way.

I think there is the same issue making a partition bootable on a drive with a Time Machine partition too - OS X defaults to a `Core Storage arrangement which defeats a naive Unibeast/Multibeast install.

Just a reminder- we've switched up the default boot flags to GraphicsEnabler=No IGPEnabler=Yes. You may need to use alternate flags at the boot screen.

If you have a UEFI based system, such as Gigabyte Z77 and Z87,

GraphicsEnabler=Yes

may be needed for NVIDIA 9xxx, 2xx, 4xx, 5xx graphics cards to boot the installer.


If you have an older Award BIOS, such as Gigabyte P55 or Z68,

GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1

may be necessary with NVIDIA 9xxx, 2xx, 4xx, 5xx graphics cards to boot the installer.
