Element not found.
I have been trying to install mac os x on my windows 7 pc for a while now with no success. I created the recovery disks and backed up all my data incase something bad happened.
Neway the problem happened when I was in the mac install window and was formatting my partition to journaled. I tried to proceed with the mac installation but it said mac cannot be installed on this computer.....restart or restore.
This message had appeared in the past but I restarted and changed the bios settings back to optimised defaults and ran the recovery disk and everything was ok.
However this time I restarted and the recovery disk couldn't find an os to boot from so I restarted several times and still no joy.
I thought It may be something to do with marking my partition as active so I ran the command prompt and ran disk part where I marked the partition as inactive and deleted it.
After hours of googling for a solution and trying all the bootrec commands I just keep getting the same error message Element not found.
Is there anything I can do to recover windows? What could be the problem? After all I didn't get far with trying to install mac and my primary portion wasn't altered in the formatting.
I hope someone can help me with this then maybe point me in the right direction for installing mac.
Thank you in advance
