    Default Dual Boot (Fix the Windows MBR)

    Hello.

    I've instaled a Hackintosh partition a few month ago. At that time i had a problem with yhe dual boot, so i decided to keep using only windows.

    Here's the problem:
    I have 4 different Hard drives. 2 of them containing documents, photos, etc.
    1 containing the Windows 7 OS,
    1 containing the Hackintosh Snow Leopard OS, with Chameleon.

    The only way to reach the Chameleon Dual Boot menu is setting This drive as first boot. OSX starts without problems if i choose it. But Windows gives me the "MBR missing" error.

    If i choose the Windows hard drive as first device in bios, i have no problem with windows, but i cannot enter OSX either, because there's no Chameleon menu.

    Is there a way to fix this without having to reinstal OS?

    I'll apreciate your help.
    Sorry for bad english.

    Default

    Just install a bootloader on the Windows box and leave that as first boot. Does not have to be Chameleon. There are some free ones out there.
