Dual boot - when I wanted to turn on windows it didnt show anything
Hello to everyone,
I have a HP Pavilion DV6 laptop, recently I wanted to do a dual boot system, to install MAC OSX and leave my windows 7 intact.I created a partition inside volume C withh shrink option (50 Gb) and formated.Then I did install Mac OSX with a bootable cd (iBOOT 2.7) and after that installed MAc, in a good way.
Now when I wanted to turn on windows it didnt show anything, so I tryed with my System Repair DVD and trying to repar and failed to repair, after failure it brings me up this screen:
[image incorrectly uploaded - see Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums ]
I did try all of them and nothing happend. The only thing is that it brings me up one screen of HP Diagnostic with 2 options:
1 System Recovery (recovers to factory setting)
2 Minimal Recovery (recovers to factory settings with minimal )
I can do that but will loos all my data and dont want to do that for the moment...
Can someone HELP me?

At any time you can rescue your data using Windows 7 DVD or System Repair Disk via this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console,
or use Paragon rescue disk to recover data.
What I would try is to start Windows 7 by marking it Active: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)
Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Windows 7 starts and holds the System Active flags on its partiiton.
Now install EasyBCD to Windows 7, add Mac from it's sub-tab on Add New Entry tab, making sure to correctly choose if you have Windows 7 installed using EFI BIOS or MBR. To determine this if you're not sure, enter BIOS setup to see if EFI boot disk is set to boot first:
Reboot to see if you get a Dual Boot menu.
