boot0: error :(

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, this is my first post here but I have been oin this forum as a guest for quite some time.


Anyway I decided to go ahead and install OS X on my laptop.


My bios has Legacy enabled & my HDD using the MBR partition scheme, and I have successfully installed Windows 8 & ML.


However, I can only boot into ML using my USB installer, I have tried to follow several guides to install bootloaders but none of them work. I always end up with the error "boot0: error". I can still boot into windows 8 after I insert my win8 install usb and get the "System Reserve" partition as active.


For extra information my laptop is: HP Envy m6-1178sa

I installed a custom kext for my RAID HDD port(becuase HP won't let me change it in the bois; who uses raid for just one HDD -.-)

I also install FakeSMC.kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext as I had panics without them.


My partition setup is as follows:


#1 Primary 350MB System Reserve (active to boot to win8)

#2 Primary 700GB (Win8 Partition)

#3 Primary 231GB (OS X Partition) (If this is active as all the bootloader guides show I get the "boot0: error")



I have spent 3 full days pulling my hair out now, and could really do with some help :P


Can anyone point me in the right direction?
