I'm curious to know whether there is any work going on for a new Chimera capable of booting El Capitan.
I have my system up and running with Clover but am having problems multi booting and I'm having to resort to using a combination of USB sticks (one with Chimera and one with Clover) in order to boot all my partitions.
Do I wait for Chimera or do I persevere and try and get Clover to boot all my partitions.

Chimera is unable to boot El Capitan at the present time. Doesn't look like it ever will be able to.
Try and get Clover to boot all your partitions.

I've got Clover booting all my partitions now :)
I do miss Chimera as Clover just lists the formatting types of each partition not the label, maybe that can be changed.
At least I'm now booting El Cap, XP, 10 and Linux Mint.

Thanks, I've had a quick look and that looks just about within my capabilities.
I might look into that when I've got iMessage, FaceTime and HDMI working.
Apart from that I'm just so pleased to have a good working setup now.
