Okay, so I am testing various things on my computer, and Time Machine was one of them. I set up my External hard drive with Time machine fine, and Created a backup. But then I had to test to see if it would work, so I booted off of Kalyway's Installation dvd, and used the Time Machine option to restore Leopard. Nothing was wrong, but if something did go wrong, I wanted to make sure I could restore my computer back to a workable state. The restore went fine, but when I went back to boot....

 

I have Grub as a boot loader, and I clicked OS X Leopard, and I got the Grub Error 13. I don't really know what to do. Can anyone help me?

This error is returned if the kernel image being loaded is not recognized as Multiboot or one of the supported native formats (Linux zImage or bzImage, FreeBSD, or NetBSD).

 

However, nothing has changed.... the only thing that I did was restore leopard... nothing else.

Time machine is useless for restoring a full backup of a hackintosh you need to at the very least manually re-install the EFI bootloader and several .kext/installers used can need to be redone as well. You can try the method to re-install the EFI in the URL below and for the rest you just need to see what stopped working and redo those parts.
