Merely changing the drive letter isnt going to help.
Could you tell us about what was where and in what order it was setup
1. Partioned drive D (2nd drive) to Fat32 inorder to install Mac OSX.
2. Shut down computer so i could unplug C drive (O/S drive)
3. Began installation process (MacOSX leopard).
4. After completed shutdown to plug C drive back in
5. booted computer the error was "SYSTEM BOOT FAILURE"
6. Put Windows 7 disc in repair > command prompt > Bootrec / commands except the first one on the list i think it was bootrec /MBR (read somewhere it corrupts drives).
7. Same problem
8. Used Diskpart tool because when i tried to repair disc could not detect O/S
9. Ill try retrace my tracks on the stuff the did on Diskpart. At this point bootmgr missing appeared instead of SYSTEM BOOT FAILURE.
Is there a faster way to acessing COMMAND PROMPT rather then waiting avout 4-5mins for the disc to load - System specs Q6600, Gigabyte P35-DS3, Nvidia 8800GT, 2x1gig 800 ddr2 ram and 2x500gigs Samsung / Seagate.
Just done diskpart > list disk says
DISK 0 online 465gb 0
Disk 1 online 465gb 0
Right now repair cannot detect O/S
I'm guessing the easiest way to fix this without reformating my system is to assign the hard-drive back to c and reinstall the operating system, wouldn't it?
Wow....this really isant my day. At the install screen my display decides to blank out...
