Ok, so I'm updating this thread really for my own edification. After reporting my success on Tonymacs and not realizing that mentioning distros is taboo I got my account permanently suspended, hilarious.
Anyway, I reinstalled the whole OS using a USB stick of Niresh Mavericks and the whole thing pretty much worked out of the gate? Which is amazing. I have sound, ethernet, graphics card and sleep are all working. I Geekbenched it at around 11900 which is close to my Win 7 geekbench of 12500.
My only hitch is the bootloader still isn't installed. I assume it's because it is installed to my OSX disk. So when I choose that disk as the boot disk it get this message that says "boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: done". Then it just loads my old windows 7 install. I guess I need to install the bootloader to my windows MBR partition. I'm considering using Slytherin to do so. If anyone has explicit instructions on how to do that please let me know. I'm concerned about breaking my windows boot.
I might just have to live off of USB flash drive for now.
