i tried changing the active partition from my main windows in the c drive to the mac osx drive but the fdisk in free dos dosent read it so i am stuck . please help, any help will be greatly appreciated.
I found this solution, works great for me...
start into windows,
Start with (type at the prompt) diskpart (Enter)
" Text in Quotes "xxx..." is only an explaination, not type this!
select - select the item e.g. disk or partition
active - set the selected partition as active.
End of explaination."
select disk 0 (Enter) "in order you have ONLY ONE HDD"
select partition 0 or 1 (Enter) "where you have OSx86 installed"
active (Enter) " set the choosen partition to active"
Thats it. Very easy. Hope that can help you...

Gparted should work, i've used it many times to set OSX partition as active.
