[Solved] Can't find /mach_kernel

Question

Can't find /mach_kernel

I got "Can't find /mach_kernel" when trying to boot from HDD. Using Chameleon bootloader, it was working fine yesterday, but today it didn't and even after I do a new clean installation of Sierra zone. 

My device specs are:

  • HP pavilion dv6-6c01ej
  • intel i3-2350M
  • 8 GB rams
  • AMD Radeon HD 7470M

Edited because of typo, user used mach_kernal instead of mach_kernel

I'm trying to boot from HD, the USB work fine. 

Thanks for your time, I do a clean installation without messing with the bootloader, the stock bootloader (Clover) is working now. 

Thanks again 😊

Are you having this issue after installation or before?

try this Kernel flag with Chameleon, Keep me updated

Kernel=kernel

It shows after installation. 

After set Kernel flag = kernel

same error appears with message "can't find /kernel"

Kernel flag isn't Kernel flag = kernel, you have to type the following fully

Kernel=kernel

or you can try the full path

Kernel=/System/Library/Kernels/kernel

I know that, I do using Chameleon wizard under Boot Flags tab. 

The second one 

Kernel = /System/Library/Kernels/kernel

made the boot process crash and restart
