    Make your OSX partition: PRIMARY, ACTIVE, and FORMATTED TO TYPE: 0xAF

    You can do this inside of Windows using: DISKPART

    or

    You can do this using ACRONIS DISK DIRECTOR boot cd.

    Until you understand how to better and more easily install OSX86; use 2 hdds.

    It will save you tons of time and stress.
