Hi all,

I installed Windows 8 in UEFI mode. My SSD has GPT partition scheme. Right now, I've got 4 partition:
- 2 partitions created by Windows installer (EFI partition and recovery)
- 1 partition created in NTFS
- 1 particion created in HFS+ Journaled.

Now, my machine boots from Unibeast and the OS X installer launched fine but it can't install in HFS+ partition, it says "OS X can't boot from this harddisk".
How can I install OS X? What's the problem of this? After installation, I'd have thought install Clover OS X that supports UEFI Bios.

Thank you very much.
