In Topic: VMware Fusion fails to boot Windows 8.1 Bootcamp

Yeah that seems to be it, I believe it's because you have it all on one disk. The virtual machine is trying to boot off of that partition but its missing the bootloader

I have had a similar issue. Do you know if they appeared in a earlier version of Mavericks. I have a Dell SAS6/IR SAS controller which is really an LSI 1068e chipset. It worked perfectly in 10.9.1 but not in 10.9.4(could be the same issue on 10.9.3). If it did show up in an earlier version of mavericks then what you need to do is replace your AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.9.1. 

 

If your SAS drives are in raid mode and not Fusion drives then I would have a look at this topic.

 

Also it would help if you provided the chipset of the SAS controller as intel doesn't make their own SAS chips in some cases it is a rebranded chip from a different manufacture.

Many thanks, I will make a new USB installer with Clover just in case (I had to wipe the current one) :)

Good luck let me know if it works!

Thank you again, I will boot Windows 8 and check with disk manager maybe some partition other than 4 has become active :)


Partition 1 I think it's the EFI (?) partition (created by OSX install),

Partition 2 is OSX

Partition 3 I don't know, maybe that weird "recovery" thingy that Clover sees.

Partition 4 is Windows 8.1

Alrighty just in case back up clover or chameleon on a flash drive just in case anything happens to the boot loader. Better safe then sorry.

Wait I just noticed you're getting a boot0 error... If it's a physical disk I don't want to mess up your bootloader for your hackontosh. BUT you can fix windows 8 by using the Plop manger, and from their repair the windows bootloader.



Here the Plop screen. I have to select the highlighted Partition 4 to Boot Windows. Selecting Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 Plop says "No Valid Bootsector signature (Y/N)", pressing Y in Part 1 VMware says "A fault has occurred causing a virtual CPU to enter the shutdown state"
Cool, right?

that is interesting what's on partitions 1-3?
