Doesn't boot anymore?? Something broken?

Question

This morning used the Hackintosh for about 30 minutes, and shut off, totally normal, nothing different.

 

After coming home this afternoon, it went to:

 

Boot:0 GPT
Boot:0 Done
 
And then stopped at "|" with a cursor blinking under it. (usually goes to Niresh boot menu) After several tries, sometimes "" with cursor blinking.
I have another Niresh bootsector on a different drive, but it does exactly the same.
Even my install USB disk does the same.  I can't find anything changed in the BIOS. I tried to start from a Linux boot cd (external USB DVD burner), but that looked like it couldn't read the cd all of a sudden. I could only boot from grub to a Linux disk. I'm quite in a panic, as this is my WORK DESKTOP! It worked pretty well for several weeks! (See my former review) with a few minor probs...
 
I managed to get into Clover through pressing "3" during boot, but that does not start a installation, not my main, nor my backup. Just a black screen. Help!
 
Posting from a sluggish Netbook on Linux...

I can understand it's busy here, but still a bit disappointed that nobody could point me in the right direction today, after hours and hours of browsing the web, I found the problem maker! 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/295332-weird-problem-with-chameleonchimera-bootloaders-not-loading/

 

On page two, the person with a similar problem disconnected other discs then the boot disk and then started to connect his other discs one by one and it proved to be the Time Machine© disc. I disconnected my Time Machine© disc and indeed, it started up again. I only don't understand why I worked OK this morning. Did Time Machine more then just make a backup of my installation disc? in my iStat menu's at unmounted discs I saw before with unmounted discs; 2 "EFI discs", but now just one left, and I really have no idea what these are...

 

See my picture:

When I used my Time Machine© disc, there were two of these!

 

Now how do I use my Time Machine© disc again, except using the Scan Single Drive flag, as I want to be able to use the boot loader to pick the right disc.

 

Someone said: 

 

 

Diskutil complains the disk has lost its EFI partition.

 

 


Why would my disc need such a partition? And how do I put that back, if I can figure out to start my computer with this disc attached anyway?

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
