Unusual boot:0 error

Hey guys,

I recently installed Niresh's Yosemite Zone 10.1.1. I followed this YouTube tutorial as closely as I could:

The problems began when I tried to boot without the usb. All I received at first was the text "boot0ss: error". I dug around online, and eventually "solved" it using chameleon wizard, but now, I get the text "boot:0 error". No other text, unlike some of the cases I've seen online. Niresh's

I have tried my hardest to solve it to no avail. For now, I have un mounted the drive OS X was installed on, formatted the partition, and planning to attempt the process of installation again tomorrow because when it first installed, it said it could not be installed on the machine (but somehow worked anyway). Any suggestions are appreciated - I'm a super-noob at this :P

Thanks in advance :) hope to get this figured out!

PC Specs:

Intel i5 4690k

Samsung 850 Evo 250GB w/ 1 partition for Windows and 1 for Mac

Gigabyte GA Z97MX Gaming 5
no graphics card atm 

Boot flags: 
-v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1 -no-zp 

I have tried:

Dd and Sudo of drive partition; says location doesn't exist.

Reinstallation (both attempts mysteriously resulted in an installation failure, but still allowed me to boot into Mac)

Clearing the mac partition completely and unmounting it - this is what leads me to believe it's a bootloader issue

Using chameleon wizard and changing it to boot0hfs.
