Booting from iBoot vs. HardDrive
I have a question that I am unable to find an answer to.
Iboot booting vs Harddrive booting, whats the difference?
I Boot to iBoot, install Snow Leopard 10.6.3 with no issues at all.
I reboot and use iBoot to boot the new system and works great with cpus=1 parameter.
I install easyBeast from MultiBeast option, reboot and try booting off the harddrive but cannot. No matter what switches I try. cpus=1, -v -x -f -legacy. I get to "starting Darwin x86" followed by immediate reboot.
So I can still boot the system using iBoot.
Can someone explain what is going on? What are the diferences between these two booting methods? They both look the same. If one works, why doesnt the other?

Hi, I had exactely the same problem, but found the solution !!!!
Chameleon is loading and trying to boot Mac osx but screen goes blank and reset the boot sequence.
After hours of patching, reinstalling and browsing blogs with no solution, I came out it is due for a simple reason: the Preboot code is missing!
1 install latest MultiBeast (i have 3.1 but think 3.0 is working as well)
2 insert your iBoot disk (uooops, obviously you have it already since you've booted from there)
3 using terminal, become superuser, type:
...then type yr password if any at the prompt
4 make a backup of the exisiting file (just in case but you should not have one if you have the problem above), type:
mv /Extra/Preboot.dmg /Extra/Preboot.dmg_backup
5 copy the file Preboot.dmg from your iBoot CD (the one that allows to boot) to your macos drive into the /Extra folder using the following command:
cp /Volumes/iBoot/Extra/Preboot.dmg /Extra/Preboot.dmg
6 Success !!!
That worked for me.
my configuration is a laptop Dell Latitude E6410 (intel i5).
