Hi. I was recently following this thread (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4144252) to try and make my windows partition bootable. Can anyone help me through it in terminal? I've followed the instructions but come up with a few slightly different results and want to make sure they're ok before I brick my computer.
Printing the MBR yields this output:
Number Boot Start Sector End Sector Status Code
1 1 39 primary 0xEE
2 * 40 409639 primary 0xEF
I have three partitions- the CCC "backup partition" which just has mavericks, the mac partition of my hard disc, and the FAT-32 partition of my hard disk. I assume the two listed in the MBR are the first two.
sudo gdisk /dev/disk0
r <enter> go to the recovery & transformation menu
h <enter> create a new hybrid MBR
5 <enter> add partion 5 to the MBR
<enter> accept the default MBR hex code of 07
y <enter> set the bootable flag
n <enter> do not protect more partitions
o < enter> print (display) the MBR
I have not yet written to disc so nothing catastrophic should happen hopefully.
