It means you probably missed a step - Perhaps Step 3 Item 4.

Check carefully.

Many users have followed this guide and proved that it works.
If it doesn't work for you it is probably because you haven't followed it correctly.

Oops, did this with my drives plugged in.

So I did this once, missed a line, proceeded to fix some other things wrong with my hackintosh, then went back to this while (oh darn) my hard drives were plugged in. Now they won't mount and have been renamed disk2s2 and disk3s2. Is there a way to correct this? It's not 10000% critical that I get the data off (I have month old backups), but I'd love to just have them mount correctly. Please help! Thanks in advance.

Thanks tonymacx86 for this very useful tutorial. Allowed to boot Mav 10.9.5 on my ASUS Z87-Pro without USB stick.

One small issue: I have 3 other OSes on separate disks and am using Grub to boot-load whichever OS I want to work in. Grub did automagically find the #2 partition of the Mav disk and can more or less boot that all by itself, however ..... none of the Chimera/Chameleon injected stuff is then available (i.e. no ALC1150 audio, no SMbios settings, etc.). Any known tricks to make Grub find and boot into the now bootable EFI partition #1?

Thanks,
- Damir
