    Default Chameleon 2r3 bootloader just spins will boot off USB tho, need a modified boot file

    okay so i am in a weird position. not only do i need a working bootloader, but i need a modified boot file. ok so i have a apple bluetooth mouse and keyboard which obviously dont work in the bios or when the hackintosh is booting up. therefore, i need to steal my sisters USB keyboard just so I am able to boot. the way i got this thing to boot is by running the bootloader off the USB thumb drive. i used lifehacker.com's tutorial to install 10.6 off a USB but im stuck needing to boot from the USB first, then select my hackintosh hd. u can see the problem in this, if bluetooth wont work in startup, how do i select the appropriate drive to boot from? anyway, my first mission was to successfully boot the OS without using a thumb drive. i install the new chameleon 2r3 and i follow all the instructions but i just get a spinning cursor with the apple logo. so that obviously didnt work. secondly, how do i modify the boot file to bypass the selection of the drive and automatically boot my hackintosh hd drive? any help would be great! thanks!
