    I need two (partitioned) installs of OS X for my day to day work (one is sandboxed so I can't mess up my personal install). I also now need to run Windows 7 via bootcamp.

    I just cloned one of my partitions off, absorbed the partition, installed Windows 7 using Bootcamp, and then repartitioned (to 3) and cloned my copy of OS X back onto the computer. The problem is now I can't boot into bootcamp. I know there are ways to have multiple partitions with bootcamp, I just need someone's help with it. I'm know my way around the computer so I just need to know the steps/code I need to run.

    If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm running 10.9.5.

    Boot from the Windows installation media and run Self Repair. It will self repair.

    Okay so I tried repairing but that didn't work. I ended up just reverting to my two partitions and getting vmware Fusion to run Windows. It does what I need it to so everything is good.
