My system runs great, its just I have to constantly boot from the USB UniBeast. Is there any way I can boot straight into OSX? I have tried chimera, chameleon and nothing is working for this boot issue... any ideas?

If you HDD haves 4k sectors (check on the manufacturer`s website) you need to follow this steps in order to get your HDD boot working > http://www.osx86.net...op-problem.html

If you HDD is a normal HDD with 512b sectors, you need to follow the steps on this thread to see what`s prevent you to boot OS X from your HDD > http://www.osx86.net...er-install.html

That makes more sense. How do I change my boot sector size on a western digital hard drive??

I'm completely lost, sorry I'm such a noob...

I can get to my boot loader screen but is there a way to automatically boot straight into OSX without manually clicking it??

No...

You can`t change the bootsector size... You only need to check if your HDD haves 4k sectors...

Depending of the answer, you need to use one of the possibilities above..

hey dude i know its been a long time since u posted ur problem but i had the same problem for a long time and if u haven't solved it yet i can help u, what i did was to download chimera and extract it contents with an app called unrarx. Then i went into the folder that was extracted and navigate to: usr/standalone/i386 and copied the boot1h file into a usb which i name BOOT.

After that i used unibeast to boot up and go into the mac os x installation menu as i did the first time before installing mac os x. the once in the installation menu u need to go to disk utility, then u need to select the hdd from which u currently want to boot from, then click unmount. then u need to access terminal and search for ur hdd identifier by writing:

diskutil list

(in my case is disk1s4) after that u need tu plug the usb drive containing the boot1h file and then write in terminal

cd /Volumes/"BOOT"

(between the "" u need to write the name u gave to the usb drive containing the boot1h file, in my case it was called BOOT, and obviously write down the name without the "")
then press enter and write this:

dd if=boot1h of=/dev/"identifier"

replace "identifier" with ur hdd identifier

finally press enter and restart the computer, by now u should be able to run a boot up ur hackintosh without using unibeast :D

hope it helped excuse my english, im spanish :P

After installing unibeast I am unable to load Mountain Lion or the unibeast USB. I've attached a link to the youtube video of myself troubleshooting it. All help would be appreciative The link is pasted below:

hi again, i don't know exactly whats ur problem, what i can asure u that the problem is due to the use of PCIRootUID=0 when running the os x, try to boot up without any flag, just in verbose mode and upload a video of what u get when u do so

I'm facing the same problem, I was able to install iPortable, and my system booted from HDD without any problem, after installing Xcode 4.2, all I get is the infamous boot0: done message with a blinking cursor. Now I only can boot from USB.

Any help is appreciated.
