  1. One suggestion that I hope can help. What I did to recover from a 11 o clock at night and not using my brain mistake was to boot an external ssd through esata (as I have a laptop). I have an old ssd with mountain lion and that is in an enclosure with an esata bus (or usb 2.0 if you don't have esata), and was able to recover from that. I used the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method to install os x, so I did the following: 1. Boot from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] flashdrive 2. When at bootloader, select the external ssd's operating system (should be some version of os x) 3. When in, go to finder, and right click on the internal hard drive (or your main hard drive), and select the 'remove encryption' option. 4. Enter password of the firevault (the password of the account you used to turn firevault on with) when asked. 5. Shutdown and Boot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] again, and now you will see the internal hard drive into 2 partitions, one which will look like your normal boot partion and one which will said 'raid' underneath. 6. Boot the partition that DOES NOT say raid (ie the normal looking one) 7. And your back in like normal. I've yet to figure out the process of recovering completly so that I don't need to boot from a [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] flashdrive everytime (as tis happened last night nad i only had a few minutes to figure this bit out), but most likely, that can be fixed by repairing the selected boot partition through comman line. Hope that this helps someone. Please note this may not work for all installs. It depends on what method you've used to install os x.
