    So I have a macbook pro late 2011 and I had a 70 Gb storage partition running windows 7. Ever since I installed OS X EL Capitan, I have ben unable to startup my mac to windows. I go on the startup screen and hold down the option key and nothing happens. I have looked at the system report and it shows the partitioned 70GB and their content says Microsoft Basic Data. I have also looked at previous threads on these forums and as a result I have downloaded "gdisk" and ran the "sudo gdisk -l /dev/disk0" and received the following results;


    Code:
    GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.1
    
    Warning: Devices opened with shared lock will not have their
    
    partition table automatically reloaded!
    
    Partition table scan:
    
      MBR: hybrid
    
      BSD: not present
    
      APM: not present
    
      GPT: present
    
    
    Found valid GPT with hybrid MBR; using GPT.
    
    Disk /dev/disk0: 1465149168 sectors, 698.6 GiB

    Partition table holds up to 128 entries
    
    First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 1465149134

    I'm thinking you need to change the "type" that the windows data is cause it's obviously there.

    In windows and OS X you need to select the same operating system in the boot camp panel. But since you can't get into it you'll need to fix it first:
    I would update your OS X as best as possible. Then try to boot into windows recovery to try to repair it.

    I think the problem is the compatibility of El Capitan and windows 7. You may need to upgrade to 8,8.1, or 10
