    Default messed up charmeleon! can't access my working ideneb intsall!

    i'm using a gateway lt2005u netbook.
    atom n270, 1gb ram, 160 hdd.
    it came with xp installed, i added ubuntu linux 9.10 karmic with grub2 (1.96/1.97)
    then installed ideneb v1.3 10.5.5 using ddmac to make a bootable usb install disk. worked great! but booting was complicated.

    grub 2 boots>windows xp option>windows boot menu>osx option>charmeleon 1>apple logo/osx! yay!
    at first i could also use update-grub in linux to configure grub and booting into osx(no apple logo but worked) but after my last update that sent grub 1.96beta to 1.97 that no longer works!

    so i tried to install charmeleon 2 from my working osx!
    at the dd step i got an error resourse busy. didn't know what to do and no internet on osx yet so i rebooted and got 4 boot errors(boot0, boot..).. cant remember exactly but this happed when i installed osx to start. to be able to boot i had to boot from a linux live usb and reinstall grub2, and that would take me to my boot sequence above.
    it seems i must have messed up charmeleon!! cuz when i choose osx from the windows boot menu(used to work perfect!) it now causes my computer to reboot immediately! so i have no way to access my working osx system!!

    i wanted to try to use the iatkos v7 to install charmeleon 2, so made an install usb with ddmac http://www.hackint0sh.org/f200/79718.htm but since that only adds the boot option to the windows menu i cannot boot that either.

    i was hoping to install charmeleon to a usb to be able to boot my osx and then reinstall charmeleon but don't know how.
    or even reinstal charmeleon from linux or windows.

    or if there is another method to make a bootable usb install of iatkos using windows or linux.

    thanx for any help or ideas!

    Default

    Fixed my own problem! well almost..

    use this to boot into osx
    Working USB Boot Disk (Chameleon)

    and turns out chameleon wont work if osx is installed on a logical partition! so i used gparted in ubuntu live usb to switch around my partitions and the iatkos usb to install chameleon on my mbr.

    but WARNING! do not use windows disk management with a osx dual boot! i lost 3 partitions because of it! and was only able to recover 2! luckily!!!

    now i still have a problem!
    i can boot into OSX fine! but if i boot windows XP via chameleon it freezes at the blue xp screen!
    only by changing the windows partition to the Active/boot partition was i able to boot up xp properly. but then i have no access to osx!
    nevermind! just switched windows to active booted up..then went back to linux and switched osx back to active.
    installed grub on my linux partition and now i can boot all 3 systems(osx 10.5.5, windows xp, ubuntu nbr 9.10) from Chameleon 2! just need to update to rc4 so i can hide my other partitions.
