I use multibeast 6.3 and audio is ACL898. But no matter what I've done it doesn't come back on. Can somebody be my guide on this?

something to try:

update your chimera to 3.x version (your screenshot seems like you are using chimera 2.x), under audio section use the alc 989 option along with EFI partition option. There is a new way to make sound working in chimera 3, there are many posts about this you should probably troubleshoot there

nicos-mac-pro:~ Nico$ sudo -s
bash-3.2# fdisk -e /dev/rdisk2
fdisk: could not open MBR file /usr/standalone/i386/boot0: No such file or directory
This is what happens when i want the EFI partition to be primary. I have been going trough the steps several times now.

What can i do from here?

EDIT: Nevermind, were not paying great attention to my spelling after so many tries, i kinda messed up the order of what i should've typed in Terminal.

Works great now.

One way to avoid typing sudo all the time is to set the root password and su to root. I hate typing sudo all the time :D

Thank you so much for this guide; I was going out of my mind trying to boot my 10.9.2 build without the USB drive. I originally built my box in 2011 with a Radeon 5770 Batmobile but that died shortly after the warranty expired. I wanted a better card for flight simulation so bought an XFX 7950 Ghost ed in full knowledge that it probably wouldn't work with OS X (I returned to Windows 7). I rebuilt with Mavericks last week and a fresh 2TB WD Caviar Black and everything was fine apart from booting. Eventually after cruising this site all day every day, I figured out that a combination of things - this guide and flashing my BIOS from FF to FH, might get it working. This part of it was dead easy. Flashing the BIOS required reassembling the Windows 7 build as FF to FH can only be done with @bios because of the different size of the image. It took me far longer to find that out than do the OS X related parts...

Thanks again

Thanks so, so much for this. It allowed me to upgrade my Apple Ati 5770 to a Gigabyte HD 7950. I was getting that weird boot0: done error without this fix.

Can someone please help me with following problem:

After following this guide step by step numerous times I keep getting the same error upon first try to boot from EFI:

boot0: GPT
boot0: test
boot0: test
boot0: done
boot1: error

The only way to boot back to OS X is via UniBeast.

I have attached a screenshot of my Terminal commands used to set up EFI partition. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jyashulendr9ctq/terminal.jpg
I have also attached another screenshot where it shows that boot and /Extra are present on the EFI partition.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7p2qidj4lkv445n/terminal_2.jpg

I completely ran out of ideas what to try next. So any help would be much appreciated

My build is:

GA-Z87X-UD3H
i7-4770
Asus Radeon R9 280x Windforce
240GB Crucial M500 SDD for OS X
