    Hey everyone: I've been trying to recover from an accidental DEATH of my Vista. After Vista didn't recognize itself (Darn you, Alzheimer's!), I tried to recover it... but it was all in vain. Now I'm just trying to reinstall it but I'm having no success. rEFIt's partition something-or-other (when it boots up) gives me an Error: Not Found returned from gptsync.efi because my GPT isn't synced with my MBR or something like that. Could anyone help? I couldn't find any help on Google... honestly.

    Additional info:

    For some strange reason, OS X has been mounting my EFI partition.
