    Hi everyone, I need to do something a little bit unusual as part of a multiboot setup.
    I have several OSs on my PC spread across four HDs including OSX.
    This requires me to use the Chameleon boot loader.
    I would like to include XP32bit and XP64bit in my setup.
    A limitation of the Chameleon boot loader is that XP must be on the same HD as Chameleon. This is not a problem if there is only one XP.
    Now I successfully installed Chameleon to the first partition, XP64 to the second and XP32 to the third partition.
    However I installed XP64 after XP32 and it added its boot info to the 32bit bootloader as it should but this means when Chameleon trys to boot the XP64 partition there is no boot info.
    I have tried hiding the XP32 partition and reinstalling XP64 to its partition but that seems to have messed up everything.
    When I selected XP32 in Chameleon I got to the windows choices of both 32 and 64 and both would boot but I would like to tidy it up so Chameleon will boot both.
    What I would like to do is get back to when it was working and somehow add the boot info to the XP64 partition.
    Is that possible?
