I have to keep the installation DVD in the drive to boot Leopard. Using OSX86Tools to reinstall EFI works perfectly, but without the install disc I still get a blinking cursor; it seems that my MBR is corrupt or missing.
The output from Partition Inspector:
*** Report for internal hard disk *** Current GPT partition table: No GPT partition table present! Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 * 63 92568502 af Mac OS X HFS+ 2 92568546 208826209 af Mac OS X HFS+ 3 208826226 234441647 af Mac OS X HFS+ MBR contents: Boot Code: None Partition at LBA 63: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in MBR as partition 1, type af Mac OS X HFS+, active Partition at LBA 92568546: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in MBR as partition 2, type af Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 208826226: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in MBR as partition 3, type af Mac OS X HFS+
Look at MBR contents where is says boot code: None. Does this mean I need to rebuild my MBR? If so how exactly can I achieve this? I tried poking about using Gparted from Parted Magic running off a bootable USB stick, but there's no option to rebuild an MBR there. Is there a terminal command or something?
Short of erasing the drive and starting again I'm not sure what to do!
