PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! Hydroboost Problems

I just finished installing my hydroboost and after properly priming it(I disconnected the coil wire primed it/ filled it,
turned the wheels chock to chock 3 times filled it,
primed it again, filled it,
re-attached the coil wire,
started it the steering was easy, turned it 2 times,
checked the fluid, topped it off,
let it sit, started it, tried to turn it and the steering got hard,
turned it off,
checked the fluid, it was full,
started it back up, pressed the brake pedal and instantly heard whining so I turned it off,
checked the fluid level, filled it,
NOW my steering is hard, brakes are nill, and the pump was getting so hot it was smoking!!!!!!

PLEASE HELP!!!!! Thanks, ahead of time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It will probably foam between fills. Give it time to settle down, and fill it up again. A little patience will help get it done right. There is a lot of little air bubbles to get out, so keep filling until there is no foaming.
