i had the exact same thing happen to me, although I was trying to do it on my 2nd harddrive (2TB) that I only use as my F:Users folder (basically a storage harddrive for pictures, music, movies, downloads, literally anything that downloads into your users folder). I would set aside a partition of 128GB for OSX, but it failed at the end every time. I tried over and over, and a few times it even made my windows partition "unformatted" so I'd have to recover all my data.


I ended up having to just install OSX on a seperate harddrive, so my hard drives are as follows:

HDD 1 - Partition 1 (C:) Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

HDD 1 - Partition 2 Linux Ubuntu 13.10

HDD 2 - Partition 1 (F:) Windows "Users" Folder

HDD 3 - Partition 1 OSX Mavericks 10.9.0


I suppose you could always back your windows partition up, completely wipe the hard drive, install OSX mavericks first, then copy the windows partition over second.

So finally i solved it two days later (sorry for the delay  :itwasntme: )


i formatted my whole hard disk and re-partitioned it again from the hackintosh installer. i installed the hackintosh then windows and everything works like magic now.

    • I have working audio, graphics and network on this 10.13  Now store has sent me "security update" which I believe is 10.13.3.  Has anyone done this via store? What do I need to do before I install it? I have issues loading EFI so have to always manually mount it (Clover configurator and EFI mounter both fail) but using terminal and command "open /efi" I am able to mount and make changes to my config.plist too.
