Today after restarting the computer I got this screen 
 
Attached File  1900067_598213063605185_536313612_n.jpg   78.39KB   2 downloads
 
I read that it is an error due to the bios that reads the network card (third preference) jumping hard drives and USB. When I start the computer I can not load the operating system from the hard disk and from the usb. how to solve? is there a way to format the hd from the bios? 
please help I do not know what to do

hi

 

have this problem with my old corsaire ssd sata II (each time I shutdown my pc)

 

what I do to solve this? nothing special, just boot on your bios (touch F2, DEL...) and then F10 to save settings and reboot.

 

;)

What guide?!

 

How can we help you, when

- we don't know how you built your USB installer?

- we don't know anything about your hardware?

 

If you're booting in UEFI mode, you can't use Chameleon. You have to use Clover.

 

If you don't know what a CMOS reset is, now is a good time to read your motherboard manual.

I was reminded of one thing, before I install windows 8 after the problem that I had, I formatted all the hard drive with GParted so I think I will not start because I deleted the partition that is used to start on a ssd for the installation of Mavericks. is it possible? how to be a formatted hard disk to be able to install from usb Mavericks? 

 

please answer me to the last question I need to know how to be a hard disk before starting the installation to return everything as it was before. At first I was able to complete the installation of mavericks
