I'm not sure if this is in the right section, if I'm not could a mod please point me in the right direction?

 

I was trying to make a hackintosh laptop for myself and eveything was going fine until I got to the part where I needed to "Use pacifist to extract mach_kernel from “OS X Install ESD/Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg” and copy it to the root of your USB drive (note: this is in the attachment)" Being the dumbass I am, not reading all the directions, and having no idea what to do, I thought that I had to install BaseSystemBinaries.pkg. So I double clicked and installed the BaseSystemBinaries.pkg for Mavericks on my iMac running 10.6, 10.7 or 10.8 (the right escapes me right now). After it finished installing I figured out I was supposed to use a file I didn't download yet so I tried to open chrome but all it did was bounce a few times then stop. Then I tried safari and it did the same thing, so I kept trying different apps but everything showed up on the dock bounced a few times then quit. Then opened the folder that had the Mavericks installation in it and doubled clicked the installer hoping to fix whatever I had done. After it bounced a few times it went away and stayed like it had been for about 5 minutes then the gray background with the spinning circle came up on the screen. I waited for about 10 minutes to see if anything would happen and nothing did so I tried to reboot it, it went normal except it just stayed on the gray screen with the apple and spinning circle. I even tried booting into safe mode but the same thing happened.

I don't know what to do or how to fix it, if someone here could help or point me in the right direction that would be awesome. Thanks

you can simply boot with option key pressed and install mavs directly from app store.
