EFI Dual boot OS X & Windows 8.1 w/ Clover on a single drive.

Recommended Posts

So, I have a computer I am able to install Yosemite Zone on, and is also capable of running Windows 8.1. The computer is EFI capable. I've read articles on how to dual boot on a single drive, and here is the process i've followed:

1.) Partition hard drive w/ Yosemite Zone installer

2.) Reboot and install Windows 8.1 Pro on GPT disk in EFI mode

3.) (Setup Windows) Reboot into Yosemite Zone installer and install Yosemite w/ Clover EFI bootloader

4.) (Setup OS X) Reboot into Windows Installer to fix bootloader

5.) Enjoy Hackintosh!

My troubles start on step 4, installing OS X breaks the Windows Bootloader (OS X will boot fine and I can use it) and I get This:

File: \Boot\BCD

Error: 0x0000000e

So, I try to fix said bootloader with my installer using "BCDboot" with no avail. I've completely reinstalled windows just to use my computer, and would greatly appreciate any help to try and get this working.

 

My PC currently only has 1 Drive, with Windows installed on it with room for OS X. And no, I won't be able to secure another drive. These are the guides I've been following:

    • Hi guys I've installed Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 on my PC who has the following specs: CPU: FX-8850 GPU: R7 260X MOBO: 990FXAUD3 REV 4.0

      I installed yosemite zone 10.10.1 without any problem and successfully installed the ethernet drivers with the PKG i found in the downloads section of hackintosh zone, I wanted to update to 10.10.5 to install the R7 260X drivers which i can download from the site but now when i enter my bootflags: npci=0x2000 and PCIRootUID=1 and I choose my ssd from chameleon bootloader it boots up and I can see it starts to load stuff when i put -v  but then the screen goes black and the system just reboots. Pls tell me how to fix thanks in advance.
    • Hi DAFFY,   Yes. High Sierra is actually installed on a Z270-F from Asus ROG. Everything's good with it.
    • Dear Community,   First of all I would like to apologise for my horrible English knowledge.   Well, I have one main problem with my hackintosh.   The first and most annoying problem is gIOScreenLockState 3. I've just tried some kexts but still this problem. Now, if I start without -v I just get black screen.   Thanks for reading,   TheXeno      
    • Can anyone specify the best or minimum NVidia GPU for Yosemite OS? Can someone list it? including the best GPU that can be supported with the nvidia web drivers. Does GT730 is supported? I only have DDR3 slot for my motherboard.
    • Thank you for your immediate response :)
