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!
