So I was messing around with my computer and it's 3 hard drives. I was thinking about going hackintosh.
I had Win7 installed and running fine on HD-2. So I used Acronis and made an image of HD-2 so I could go back to Win 7 after messing with Mac.
I booted into Mac and wiped HD-2, formatted OSX Journaled and installed Mac. Then when I tried to boot I got a windows boot manager error.
So then I decided to go back to Win7, plopped the Win7 disc and reformatted HD-2 NTFS - then put my saved Acronis image back on it. Still getting boot error from windows.
When I boot to Win7 it shows my HDs and shows HD-1 as the system drive and it also shows HD-1 has another partition that's 9mb - so I'm assuming that's what's messing me up. I need to avoid wiping HD-1.
when ever you are installing a OS you should have only 1 HDD connected. you now have a part of the boot loader on HD1 even though it's HD2 that has the OS. connect just HD2 and boot off of the windows DVD and repair your system.
You know why do people create a problem for them self, messing around.
As said it would of made more sense to take the Hd out with windows 7 and use a new one
Then for example using a Hard drive caddy in the Bays where a dvd rom drive is fitted as a
Swap option. One solution.
