that's because in the unibeast usb drive it isn't set to quite boot you need to try it with it unplugged
unibeast is set to instant menu
select your mavericks drive via bios/uefi and set it to the top priority in the hdd group and then see if it works

When I do that, this is what happens without the USB and Mavericks drive selected:

boot up off unibeast drive
then open disk utility
then shrink your mavericks drive by 1gb and format the new section to Fat
then run chameleon wizard and on the installation tab select boot0hfs
be sure to target your Mac OS X partition and hit install

It does this because of your graphics card AMD brand problem only

Ah there it is... AMD problem. This fixed the boot issue. Thank you carpentry plus! And to everyone else's tips... they were a big help.
