Hi, I am trying to fix my friends hackintosh but am having a problem.
After installing windows7 to a blank 2nd drive in his hackintish everyting was fine, could boot either by selecting the drive in the bios. However then tried to create a proper boot menu and in doing so changing around which partitions were active (this might have been the wrong thing to do) and everything went wrong.

4=probably the OSX system partition, selecting this gives

I can access the drives from within windows, is there a way to fix it that route?
