    hello every one
    i know that this is a mac os x forum and not windows, but i think some thing is wrong with my windows and my mac pro.
    about a month ago i was using my windows vista home premium with my mac osx on the same hdd, then i decided to give my mac some space alone, so i bought a new hdd for my windows, so yah i used an application before i don't remember the name but it's job is to allow me to have the permission to read/write on an ntfs drive, then i used the disk utility to back up then restore to an another hdd.
    so when i finished every thing i removed my old windows from the boot camp and started with a new windows as boot camp also, but it always freeze forever when my windows is preparing my desktop information.
    and thats my story with my mac and windows, i know i messed up alot, but is there a way to fix it?
    i even tried to run my windows with my parallels but it didn't work out.

    Mac FUSE with NTFS-3G? Anyway, I'd guess Disk Utility restore is what messed you up. The Windows install disc should have a "repair" option but maybe the drive you restored to isn't formatted properly due to NTFS-3G, or something like that. Might have to reinstall Windows if you can't repair it.

    if tried the repair option from the windows installation disk, but it didn't work.
    i guess i have to start all over again with windows :mad:
    and i guess thats another reason to have a mac and not a pc ;), i only use my windows for 4 games:-
    crysis
    fallout 3
    left 4 dead
    the orange box

    if these games where available on Mac's i would never think about installing windows :(
