I get an error when trying to boot with my hard drive.
Error: no boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed
I have to boot with the iAtkos ML2 disc in order to start mac. Any ideas?

-I have tried messing with the Bios with no luck





System information:
Chipset: H61
Graphics: Intel HD 2000
PC Model: HP P2-1394
Motherboard: IPXSB-DM (CORK 2)
Processor: Intel i3 2120T Ivybridge
RAM: 6 GB DDR3



Everything is fully functional except transparency and having to boot with the ML2 Disc.

Do you mean during installation or after installation?

I installed the default bootloader inside iatkos ML2 and after when inside Mac itself I installed Chimera but no luck.

Going to do a fresh install and see what happens.

Are you booting the right HDD? The Mac HDD should be first.

I believe the problem is within my bios. It runs UEFI and no matter what bootloader I try I can't see them. I also don't know how to use clover.

Just ask in the Bootloaders>Clover General Discussion topic. If you have a pure UEFI board, Clover is necessary.
