Hello!
For you GPT error, you have to install the boot1h manually.
Copy this at the root of your usbkey for example. Boot on the osx dvd the go to the disk utilities and unmount your system partition.
Open the terminal, type "diskutil list", look for your osx partition identifier, for example /dev/disk0s2
Go to your boot1h folder (cd /Volumes/(your usbkey) the type "dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk02(replace disk0s2 with your correct disk identifier).
Then reboot. You must be able to boot normaly now :D

(this is now solved by doing a full re-install)

Hi guys and girls !!!

Im Bobert : - )

firstly my problem is ML 10.8.2 not booting anymore as it was before (retail clean (myhack) install) please continue reading to see specs and full problem.


HOWEVER IT IS LONG AND I DO NOT KNOW IF IT IS A SIMPLE PROBLEM SO ONLY READ IF YOU HAVE TIME AS I DONT WANNA WASTE YOUR TIME, THX - PLUS I WANT TO GIVE YOU THE FULL VIEW OF WHAT I HAVE DONE, scroll to the bottom to see the problem.

specs are (i know not great for "hackintoshing")

MOBO Gigabyte z68x-ud3-b3
Chip Core i7 2600k
2GB Ram
Evga GTx 670 2GB
3TB HDD

what i did that caused this problem

(Hybrid MBR/GUiD) home built for windows to work on guid scheem

basically windows didnt like 3TB and the GUiD that mac loved so i read up and modded my GUiD to let windows see it and work.

So what i did was,

Partition my pen drive on a mac and make a mac installer of 10.8.2.dmg, and it booted fine ish on this system, then i partitioned up this systems 3TB drive and installed mac 10.8.2 then windows and then linux

(all i did was boot the pen drive, then loads diskutil* and click partition 3 times and guid scheem so all the stuff here is standard right.)

then as mac is installed first to the first partition i installed windows 7 to the 2nd partition then ubuntu 12 to the third partition with no swap (mount point is / on the third partition) and (yeah i know its slower but i dont notice it on this machine)

so all i now have is windows 7 with SP1 installed and there are no issues at all other than i cannot YET get back to Mac nor Linux yet !

this is as my chameleon or clover or chimera boot loader was wiped out or whatever by boring old windblows boot loader... so i also look up how to make a chameleon boot cd, i made my own back on that other mac rather than use myhack pen drive for a number of reasons....

so i booted back to mac on my 2.2 chameleon boot cd, nice i load up mac and it works nice... i restored the boot loader everythings fixed i see when i boot back to normal screen of chameleon latest 2.2 r2235 i think...

then i installed windows 8 Pro (not windows 8.1 blue but windows 8 Pro build 9200) this then killed YET AGAIN the F*& boot loader ...

so i managed to boot back to mac partition and install the latest chameleon again BUT

and this is the problem

Mac os x 10.8.2 Mountain Lion has decided NOT to boot up but the others are fine ?? what gives ??

Please god someone help me... all id like to do is boot it up

chimera just reboots when im trying to boot it up from the cd (rboot)

chameleon well thats the same as above (hangs at macs [pci configuration begin] )

clover reboots OR KP's


commands ive tried

-F -f -v Kernel=DIR to Kernel ahcidisk=1 debug=8 npci=0x2000 npci=0x3000 pcirootuid=0 pcirootuid=1

all of these all ways and on all loaders that booted up i have 3 kernels that ive tried and its not booting up at all on any of them

what happends is that either the screen goes to the apple logo and freezes or it reboots an with -v it either KP's or sits at the infamous pci config begin or it then goes to the apple logo and reboots .... BONKERS

the other mac is my toshiba nb100 and i cannot use ##### AND it isnt running my usbs properly (at all now not sure why)

please help

I had to install win 8 first, Win will override Mac.
I then Installed Iatkos from usb with Chameleon 2.2 2232 boot loader install on USB
USB boot and partion GUID and select my hardware from the bootloader options.> graphics ECT.
After install ON 3 PCs (HP 7700 , Toshiba , Dell) I just used -f -v once I had to use UseKernelCache=no u k c are caps
At boot > I use f8 to select the OS I want to BOOT

You only need Chameleon on USB for install.
I never did anything after installing Mac> installing win8 before Mac on GUID> 3 partions. 1. win8 2.ML 3 ML
I select the things I need with the Chameleon options before install
only problem i have was wifi and ALC262 audio > bought usb audio $10.98 > Now have Bose sound

You can create a restore IMg and restore with NIsh to a USB HD . then boot to USB HD for a backup to do what you want.
I would get a 250g usb with power/input.
