I followed the guide here http://www.tonymacx86.com/374-unibeast-install-os-x-mavericks-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html and reached the installation screen. But I got a problem with formatting partition to install Maverick. At Step 4-6, the partition tab has been missing. I tried to erase my partition and format it to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). But the installer still give me "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume". Now I can't even boot to my Win7 and need to use installation in order to boot to win7. So how can I work around this problem?

You must have been using an MBR disk. OS X only uses a GPT disk, unless you use the MBR installer patch. That is why OS X said "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volumes".

Please provide complete details in your profile.

System: manufacturer/model
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx). For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.
