So after I went though all the heartache of making my intel macbook pro a triple boot system (OSX, ubuntu, XP), I find that to upgrade to SL I need to jump through a whole bunch of hoops... or ditch my linux partitions (SL needs 200MB of free space between partitions for some reason, and I did not want the pay for defrag software to resize my mac partition). Bye Bye Ubuntu. I got ride of the Linux swap and partition, taking the free space into my mac partition. I upgraded to SL and now my windows partition will not boot. When I change the startup boot in mac preferences, and restart. It says there is nothing there to boot from (...insert boot CD...). I had refit installed to manage the 3 partitions and I got rid of it after I got rid of linux, but the windows partition did not show up on the bootcamp boot loader (hold down option when I turn on my computer). I reinstalled refit and rebooted only to find that my linux and windows boots do not work, then both get stuck saying GRUB..... Yes, linux was still there, but that is because when I had the triple boot, I put in some code that doubled the linux icons in refit and never took the time to fix it. From refit, both the linux and windows loaded grub and boot from there. But now they just say Grub.... I have repaired the partition permissions and verified and repaired everything in OSX disk utility. Still no good. Boot camp only lets me kill the partition entirely. What is the best way to clone up the PC partition incase I need to kill it and reinstall a clone, I got some software that no longer have discs and I dont want to lose. So, my question is. How do I regain the ability to boot my windows partition, either using refit, or bootcamp loader (preferably). Here is what refit partition inspector says: *** Report for internal hard disk *** Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT) 2 409640 421675047 Mac OS X HFS+ 3 421937192 488397127 Basic Data Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 409639 ee EFI Protective 2 409640 421675047 af Mac OS X HFS+ 3 * 421937192 488397127 0c FAT32 (LBA) MBR contents: Boot Code: GRUB Partition at LBA 40: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 1, type EFI System (FAT) Partition at LBA 409640: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 2, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 2, type af Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 421937192: Boot Code: Windows NTLDR File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 3, type Basic Data Listed in MBR as partition 3, type 0c FAT32 (LBA), active Hopefully it is a quick fix.
