    Lightbulb snow leopard partition disk failure but windows 7 partition working perfectly? AMD

    Hi,

    I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but...

    I installed mac osx 6.x.x on my AMD Acer Aspire e380 with the OSX.86 mod CD method with no problems after struggling with reinstalling the hazard version at least 50 times to get it right... with it always ending up wrong.

    I partitioned my AMD into 2, Snow Leopard and Windows 7. I use Mac for my work as a video editor, I've just graduated so cant afford a real mac but had my showreel and website on the mac partition.

    then the disk failed.

    first it would boot with a progress bar at the grey logo screen and let me onto the os... then it would only take me to a flashing blue/darkblue screen. now it just hangs at the grey logo, no progress.

    HOWEVER! ,my windows 7 partition is still working perfectly!!... how can this be?

    I dont have/cant afford an external hard drive/anything.

    how can I fix this? or at least get my final cut pro files off my mac partition to reinstall?

    thank you

    Well if it was working before you did SOMETHING to change it. Did you add new hardware recently? Accidently install something to the wrong partition? I'm not trying to insult your intelligence but pointing out the obvious. Something changed, if it was working before. You're on AMD, maybe a kernel error? I suppose you could try a reinstall of the legacy kernel. Some screen shots would be nice, as I'm not sure if the flashing screen is a common error screen or a unique error screen. If nothing else, recovering your files should be definitely possible, but all my recovery ideas would requiere a Mac. Are there Mac live CDs? Can the Mac installer access the hard-drive files? I'm sure there must be a Windows program that can decrypt Mac partitions. Sorry I don't have any specific conclusions, all I have to offer is some ideas that maybe you can use.
