Ok... I just found out about the bad blood between this community and tonyosx86... I didn't really know much about this community, or I would have started my hackintosh journey here.  Here is my issue... (First timer)

 

Ok. I got everything right until I used #####. I had it working to boot off the USB, then ran #####... Now I get to the apple loading screen and after about 30 seconds my monitor turns off. Computer stays on. 

Now I can't even get into my windows install which is on a different hard drive. Please help! Is there a safe mode I can boot into?

i have a gigabyte z68ma-d2h-b3 motherboard.

when I try to boot into windows it says error...boot mgr missing

i took out my zotac GeForce 9500gt video card and got a little further into the boot process... 

Now I have a panic error message. (CPU 2 caller .... No hpets available. CPU configured incorrectly...

update...
i restarted the computer. Now I can log in then see the desktop. For about 20 seconds. Then everything freezes. Should I try to run ##### again?

 

______

 

Is there any way I can start over without #####?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Now both windows and osx will not work, and my PC is useless.

 

Thanks.

The reason for the black screen with the 9500GT is that you need to put an EFI string in the org.chameleon.boot.plist. You can make your own string with this tool: http://www.insanelym...elease-is-here/

good to know.  I ended up taking the graphics card out so I could get to the desktop.  It still freezes after 20 seconds.  Is there any way I can start over?

Are you stuck at a grey screen with cursor or the spinning ball?

Most of the time I can get to my desktop, then about 15 seconds in, it freezes.

I don't have an apple keyboard, so I cannot enter s or v mode.

Every USB keyboard should work. Are you using PS2? Try booting USBBusFix=Yes

On chameleon screen type: UsbBusFix=Yes if works put in org.chameleon.boot.plist.

I was able to input the USB fix line... hit enter... then the gray apple screen appeared... the twirling clock went for awhile then froze... then let me log in.  Logged in, then 20 seconds later it froze again.

 

I restarted computer and entered the "org.chameleon.boot.plist" and the computer said it could not find it... press any key to continue.

 

is the tonyosx program Chameleon?

How would I see if I have an extra folder?  I have 20 seconds once I am logged in.

 

Thanks for your help.  I really appreciate it.

I unplugged the hard drive that has the Mac OS on it. I still cannot get back into windows. When I try to boot from my windows 7 DVD it still doesn't work. It goes through a black screen with a lot of white writing. At the end it says pxe-mof: exiting pxe rom. Disk boot failure. Insert system disk and press enter. So I do that and it repeats itself. Is there a way to wipe a hard drive from the bios so I can do a clean install of windows 7 again?
I saw this on another website. I did switch from IDE to AHSI when I did my Mac install.

"AHCI: Short for Advanced Host Controller Interface, AHCI takes better advantage of SATA drives by enabling hot swapping and NCQ, but there's a caveat. If you've already installed Windows, suddenly switching from IDE mode to AHCI will quickly muck things up. On the other hand, it's a good way to see what a BSOD looks like if you've never seen one before. Otherwise, be prepared to start fresh with a new Windows installation."
