Installed iAtkos v7, but can't use Windows 7
Hey guys, I've posted this on two other forums already, and didn't really get much help on the issue of me not being able to boot into Windows 7.
It was I think May 27th when I started trying to install iAtkos v7. I was using Windows 7 just fine, and then rebooted PC and began trying to install it. A lot went wrong. I got it partially installed at one point, but it didn't work, so I thought I'd just boot back into Windows and try again another day. I don't remember the exact order of events, but I know that the last thing I did before things really started messing up was using terminal (from Leopard installation) and also from single user mode in Chameleon loader.
1. fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
2. flag 1
And I happened to do that with... every disk. rdisk0, rdisk1, rdisk2, rdisk3, and rdisk4.
Anyway. I haven't been able to install either XP or Windows 7 since all of this. I have put my hard drives in every configuration possible. When I switch bios to run in AHCI mode, I can boot into Windows XP install. The moment I switch the mode to IDE, it gives me either "BOOTMGR is missing" or "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER." When I finally manage to run recovery in Windows 7, it never finds any drives with Windows 7 installed. When I'm using Leopard, the drive in which Windows 7 is installed is called "Untitled" and doesn't have any folders except for $RECYCLE.BIN and System Volume Information. I'm not sure whether everything was wiped or not because I have a partition from the drive and everything in it is fine.
I really hope someone here can help me. I'm a music producer and I use FL Studio, which can't run on OS X, which really sucks because I had installed Mac with the intention to use Logic Pro in combination with FL Studio. None of my music projects are on the actual drive, but a lot of sound samples I use (and many other very important things) are on this hard drive.
These are my specs, in case they're needed:
Thank you all very much!
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.4 GHz
GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
eVGA X58 SLI LE Motherboard
3 external hard drives
5 internal hard drives. 2 are SATA and the other 3 are IDE/SCSI connected to a PCI device that has the plug for the ribbon cable.
HP DVD Writer dvd840
No one out there can help me out? I have so many documents and photoshop files on my Windows 7 hard drive that I *can not* lose. There's stuff that I had been working on for years, and every time I would install a new hard drive, I would transfer it over to new installation of Windows.
I really can't believe no one knows what the issue I'm having is. Someone out there please help me out! I really need my stuff back!
This is the simple way:
HD1 install Windows 7 or XP, whatever you want
HD2 install OSX
If you used AHCI to install windows you better leave it like that, OSX will install also in this mode. For dual boot settings you can take a look on our dual boot subforum or google it.
You can always select your drive using ur BIOS tho.
P.S. Your Windows drive will always show as "Untitled" unless you install something like Paragon.NTFS to write on it from OSX, after that you will be able to change its name and icon
