Unfortunately, Chameleon Mac bootloader option in EasyBCD 2.3 no longer works, since starting from Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.x, the file machkernel in root dir was replaced by the file kernel in /System/Library/Kernels/. If you are one of the unlucky ones who ignored my numerous warnings or just accidentally pressed the wrong button while running the myHack installer from a real MAC here is an example of how to repair the partition scheme on a real MAC so that it will boot again – after accidentally installing the chameleon bootloader to the MAC’s internal hdd. I’ve tested a simple Chameleon R2588 version USB boot drive to work with OS X: Yosemite, Mavericks and Mountain Lion.

The last thing I didn't try to do is changing bootloader from Chameleon to Clover. (Following is my history of installation of Maverick on AMD CPU)
Replacing Chameleon with Clover was simple, and I think it's not necessary to write it because you are reading this document to delete Clover bootloader. I installed Clover bootloader after booting Maverick with Chameleon.
However, Clover didn't solve the issue on iMessage & Facetime even though all the things work fine (HDMI audio, LAN, Video etc.) But, I think the Chameleon is better because it's simple, and no benefit of using Clover for me.
Here comes the trouble, cannot move back from Clover to Chameleon even though I uninstalled Clover bootload by using AppCleaner, delete all EFI directories on boot disk, reinstall Chameleon bootloader many times. All trials failed.
The reason why I cannot move back to Chameleon is due to EFI partition which was created during installation of Clover I think. So I've been looking for how-to delete this. But, it was not easy because it's used when booting Maverick. (aka protected)
