Hi!

I have a serious problem, I created Boot Camp partition, computer restarted and all I saw is that drive is not bootable, the problem is, that it is bootable, it boots on my old laptop. I installed rEFIt, no help. I don't know what to do.
in rEFIt I have 5 options to choose from (should be 3 Mac OS X, Win7 + DVD Boot). I've made a short video, please download it from my server and have a look: http://stills.pl/files/windows_installation_on_imac_problem.mp4

Please help.

Did you format the Bootcamp partition before you installed Windows on it?

(The movie is fine I watched it)

rEFIt, never used it know nothing about it. Your setup is beyond my ability to assist. If it was just regular bootcamp I could help.

You are seriously expecting people to download and run a file from an unknown source?
Yeah, an mp4 file is deadly dangerous... C'mon... :/

It's fine...
Do you know where should I go to to sort it out?

The worst scenario I can format my HDD and start fresh, but it's so time consuming...
