So i have a rooted AT&T samsung galaxy S4, and tried flashing pacrom 4.4 and afterwards, ot says no OS detected when i try to reboot. I had a Nandroid backup, but when i tried restoring it, i got the error message, " cant mount system", and now i can get it to boot up. Ive done this with a nexus 4, and the nexus root toolkit fixed it, but how do i fix this with the galaxy s4????!

If you have a locked bootloader then you can't flash it. From the Q&A from the thread.

Q. Can we flash this on Locked Bootloader?
A. No, This requires custom kernel and can never be flashed on locked bootloaders.

It used to show a lock that was unlocked when it booted up. I know on the nexus 4, that indicated the bootloader was unlocked.
Anyway, could you point me in the right direction on how to get the OS back on there so ot boots up again??

I think you just need to flash a stock firmware with Odin.
