Can not boot up Yosemite install without installer USB

Hi,

It's been a while!

So, I came across two old SFF setups that I could buy for just a couple of bucks. One of them is an NEC power mate VL280. I installed Yosemite 10.10.1 on it which I updated to 10.10.5 without problems. Everything is working fine, except for 2 little problems:

1. I can't boot up from my harddrive. Chameleon gives me the error that mach_kernel cannot be found. It boots fine when I use the Yosemite install USB to boot, though. When I link to the kernel in /System/Library/Kernel/ in the boot arguments, my computer just reboots.

2. Whenever the computer goes into standby, my monitor refuses to power back on.

Any advice?

Intel Core 2 Duo E6550, 2.3Ghz
Motherboard is unknown, since it is produced for NEC, but it has the Intel G31 or G33 chipset
Sapphire Radeon HD 6450 1GB, Low-Profile
4GB DDR2 RAM, 667Mhz

I am using Chameleon v2.2svn r2286 as built-in boot loader.

Thanks in advance,

Rico

Ah, I was being stupid. I updated Chameleon to the latest version and now I am able to boot the system from my harddrive.
