After Mavericks install Windows boot media isn't recognized.

Question

Hey Guys!

 

After mavericks installation my computer isn't recognizing ntfs formats and windows installation boot media.

 

Let me put this in points!

1. I installed mavericks, and functioned well except for the boot0 error.

2. My network adapter was incompatible so i didn't want mac anymore. 

3. I formatted my HFs+ drive and tried booting my windows using a thumb drive.

3 My BIOS detected my thumb drive but not as a bootable medium.

4 My BIOS settings are properly set to install through Thumb drives but still my BIOS doesn't detect it as a bootable one.

5.I tried wiping my entire drive using ultimatebootcd but the boot0 error was persistent.

6. This time when i repartitioned my HDD to gpt with ntfs drives in it my BIOS didn't even detect my HDD but when i load ubuntu it shows me all my HDD

 

7. Then i installed Ubuntu as a whole on my HDD, my HDD being in ext4 partition is detected and i can boot Ubuntu.

8. The annoying fact is that i still can't boot windows bootable media in any format............my comp keeps saying "No boot media found           please insert boot media and press a key".

9.  I tried booting HIREM boot cd using a thumb drive but not even that is detected now.

10. I am in a very desperate situation now and have no idea how to get back my windows as i am a designer and badly need photoshop and windows.

 

Some stupid things i did:

1. Installed mac on the same drive as windows the first time i installed mac.

 

 

If you can help me with this issue it would be very helpful of you. 
If you need any further information please do ask me.

Bytheway only do step one thru step four and Choose "STARTUP REPAIR" and let it finish repairing and restart

And see if it works and you can login to windows.

If that doesnt work .try again and continue from step four.

GOODLUCK :)

Worst case scenario, mount Ubuntu to a USB, don't install but just run it, copy all your files to a backup medium then reinstall windows.

    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
