So I did something stupid and tried to activate OSX's ability to write to NTFS. Here's the steps I followed

Run Terminal
Type "diskutil info /Volumes/volname", where volname is the name of the NTFS volume. From the output, copy the Volume UUID value to the clipboard.
Type "sudo nano /etc/fstab."
Type "UUID=111-111-111 none ntfs rw", where 111-111-111 is the UUID you copied.
Save and quit nano by typing Control-X, Y, and then Enter.
Restart your system.

I did that for the one NTFS partition I want access to from OSX. Now I get a kernel panic. I'm attaching a photo of the kernel panic. I can see it references the UUID of the partition.



I'm not sure how to undo what I did but I'm sure google will be my friend.

Is it worth trying to fix or am I better off just reinstalling Mountain Lion? I just installed Mountain Lion so I don't have anything valuable on the disk.

I've heard those are good.

However I need to be able to boot in osx first.

When I try to boot into osx I get the kernel panic. What can I do to fix this.

Thanks, I'll try that out when I get home and report back.

btw - I've read that there's a possibility of corrupting the NTFS drive if you write to it from OSX. I'm guessing since you guys recommended Paragon and Tuxera you haven't run into that problem yourselves?

EDIT:
I thought I'd just google how to boot in -x mode but I can't seem to find instructions on how to do. Is it an option when selecting the OSX drive in Chameleon or is there another way to boot into OSX with -x mode?

EDIT 2:
Think I found it:

Boot into safe mood -- enter the -x boot flag when on the hackintosh boot screen

One more question - let's say I can get into OSX. How in the world do I undo what I did?

maybe try to find the setting for another ntfs driver then apply those settings to the ntfs driver you've modified

Got this fixed guys, thanks for the help. Booted single user and deleted something to do with com.apple.driver.Appletymcedriver - worked.
