  1. I managed to get the system up and running. Basically I formatted the whole ssd again using disk utility and GPT. Installed windows first, then with an external HDD (having both chimera and mavericks installation) installed mavericks osx. After reboot and got the osx stable installing my needed kexts. Restarted again the mavericks installation and, unmounted the macosx parition using diskutility and then using terminal ran the following line: diskutil list (take note of the macosx partition identifier) dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 After I restarted without the external HDD and the ssd managed to boot both mavericks and windows.
  2. Hi all, I have a desktop with a 480GB crucial SSD and am trying to install Windows 8.1 along with Mavericks OSX using chameleon/chimera bootloader as my motherboard only support BIOS (no UEFI). So basically I have setup my ssd as GPT 50-50 (hfs+ first partition and FAT second partition). I continue by installing Mavericks first and it finishes fine, I touch up with some kexts from multibeast to get the system stable and install chimera bootloader (boot1h manually since I guess the SSD doesn't seem to work with the boot0 file) Then I installed Windows 8.1 using a bootable DVD (format 2nd partition to NTFS using the built in windows DVD) and continue to installation of Windows. Since Windows is pesky it just sets up its partition as active at the end of installation, so I'm basically ruined. So then I used both diskpart (windows) and fdisk (mac) to mark the MAC partition as active, and nothing got me a working a proper dual boot. What I have noticed is that diskpart although literally saying Mac partition active, neglects this and keep on booting to windows automatically, and using fdisk, truly makes the MAC partition active but only MAC is accessible, as windows is selected a blue window comes up saying partition corrupted. Can anyone help to get a proper dual boot working on a single ssd GPT?
