Hello all, A couple of years ago I put quite a bit of money into a Sandy bridge 2700k build with a Gigabyte Z68X-UD3P mobo, dual boot Win7 and Lion. But the general flakiness and lack of sleep etc meant that I haven't used it much in the past year. Now, having found out that a UEFI bios is available, and with Mavericks being released, I thought that I would give it another go. So, I booted into Win7 and updated everything through windows update, and uninstalled the gigabyte utilities as suggested by the manufacturer. Only now, it won't boot. The furthest I get is the beginning of the Win7 animation, the four beams of colour coming together - then it reboots, and asks to go into the recovery app. This can't repair the installation, and I have also tried pulling the mac SSD and HD, leaving just the 2TB windows drive. The most frustrating thing is that I was one step away from loading the UEFI bios, and I don't want to have to load Mavericks without it. I don't have a backup of the win7 drive, but neither do I have any important data on there. Would be nice to keep my Skyrim saves though. Any ideas? (Thanks in advance) David P.S. I know that this is a hackintosh, but copies of all OSs are fully paid for, and I think this is a problem that could have happened just as easily with a windows disk in a mac pro. Of course, if I'm not allowed to post about this, please just let me know and I'll delete the thread.
