  1. I know this is an old thread folks, but this just occurred on my very stable Josemite hack. I have a system which runs 2 DVD drives, 3 OS's - Windows 7, Linux Mint, and Yosemite, plus a Yosemite Clone and a Data Transfer Drive (Fat32) for cross platform transfers. That's 5 hard drives..... This error disabled booting of all but the Linux Drive, and although the BIOS reported the presence of all the hard drives, and all looked normal, the smaller Data Transfer Drive had failed. This consequently had catastrophic effects at boot up. I got to the boot where I even suspected a Chameleon Bootloader issue.. As a result of reading many sites, including this one, I systematically disonnected drives one by one until I found the culprit. All is again normal and running well. This is related to OSX's need to find devices in the right order and up and running when it seeks them. My advice is to disconnect all drives other than your boot drive and reinstall one by one - be patient and you'll find it...... Hope this helps somebody....... Steve
