Installed Windows 7, then Niresh. Now Windows 7 won't boot...

Recommended Posts

Hello guys.


Yesterday I installed Windows 7 and then I installed the Niresh 10.9 hackintosh on the same disk.

After installing the hackintosh, I can't get to WIndows 7 anymore.


If I remember correctly, I installed it like this:


1 - Used gparted live usb to partition disk in:

1.1 - MBR disk (I think, it certainly was NOT gpt)

1.2 - 3 partitions: WINDOWS7 (120GB), MAC OS X (80GB) and Linux(40GB) - I will install Arch Linux in the future, after everything is working.
2- Installed Windows 7
3- Installed Niresh 10.9

Now, even if I hit F8 at the post screen of my mobo and select "Windows Boot Manager" it will boot to MAC OS X.

I know I have to fix the boot and I probably should have installed Niresh BEFORE Windows 7, but I don't know how to proceed now.


So, what you guys think: fix boot or proceed to install Niresh first and Windows 7 later?

Also, please give me some instructions, I am a bit new to all of this.


Thank you.

Just install bootloader from mavericks and use chameleon wizard to install Boot0hfs, and when booting choose system reserved partition for windows, not windows partition
