Hi
Thanks for your great efforts. I am facing a weird problem for partitioning my HDD. I had purchased a probook 4740s and hackintoshed it dual boot with Windows. Everything was working perfect. Unfortunately after 2 days HDD got corrupted and I got new one by claiming warranty.

The problem is after replacing HDD, I can't make partitions on it with Unibeast. There is no "Partition" tab in Disk Utility any more.

Here is a screenshot.

But when I try to make partitions with Windows DVD, it does perfectly. I tried making partitions with Windows and then try to format one of them with Unibeast, but no luck. All the partitions are disabled.

I tried to "Erase" the lonely partition and completed installation with HP Probook Installer. After booting from HDD I opened "Disk Utility". And now the "Partition" is there. But clicking on tab doesn't do anything.

Can anyone please suggest me some solution? I have also set BIOS settings as recommended in HP Probook Sticky Guide by RehabMan. I am afraid that I have to again replace HDD :(


Update:
I have tried unibeast USB on another HP Probook 4540s Core i5, and found this problem again. Is there any possibility that unibeast USB is corrupted?

I think something is wrong with your USB, or you need to repair the disk first.
