As I said in the Installation forum...I succeeded at installing.

Formatted the HDD as 2 partitions, one GUID journaled, the other as GUID Fat32.

The install went normal after ward and then I just resized the partition. So strange.

Are you guys using some specific tool or scripts for your installation? Because I've never experience this at all with all my manual installations and I've done a few by now...

Not me. I'm following the guide as close to the letter as I can. I've gone through it about six times and was about to give up and try Mavericks...when I saw this guy's post about two partitions...so I thought, "What the hey?"

So I did it and it worked.

I'll chalk it up to the mysterious "reboot fixes the computer" sort of explanation if necessary...but I'm frankly at a loss. Doesn't seem like it should do anything.

How do you point a boot loader at a new kernel location? 

 

I'm working through the patel4prez tutorial and running into a similar problem: the OS seems installed, but when I boot without the flash drive, it gives me:

 

"No Boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine."

 

If I boot from the USB, then select Macintosh HD as the drive to load, I get the kernel error described above, but mine goes:

 

Can't find /System/Library/Kernels/Kernel

Can't find mach_kernel

Press a key to continue...

 

I can choose to boot from the USB E6410Y and it will load OSX right up.

 

I have exactly the same issue as the above and Jack Lo's feedback to use this DOES solve my boot problem. Now I can go deal with the panic issue. :(

 

diskutil cs revert <UUID>

 

But still need to thank Jack Lo's help.
