Hi, i have a new system and i wanted to have a dual boot. I have 2 HDD's one for Mountain Lion and one for Windows 7. I have a succesfull dual boot on my laptop but i can't get it working on this machine. I installed Windows first and after that Mountain Lion successful. I installed all my needed kext and got it working and my bootloader works. But now i can't boot into windows anymore. When i select System Reserved the windows Flag comes up and then restarts. Could someone please explain i can't boot into system recovery because it says: This option for System Restore isn't available with your version of windows. (Don't know i translated it from dutch since i have a dutch install DVD). Maybe i need to write a new MBR from Mac?

Do you have the partitions on the same drive or on they different ones?

Ok.

I suffer from something similar to your issue. The only solution for me that worked was using Clover EFI instead of Chameleon. I know Chameleon is the standard and it has time and time again shown its power, but Clover is changing the game.

2 separate hard disks ? u must have left windows hdd plugged in while u installed osx in other hdd.

make windows disk active in the reserved parttition 100mb then run the windows setup to repair startup.

i have windows 7 x2 and linux in partitions. and a second hdd for osx only.

linux boot menu i modded custom: setroot (hd1) chainloader+1 with insmod hfsplus however this wont work if a USB device gets on way and changes HD#
(i have to unplug usb hdds or no osx boot)

this way each hard disk has its own bootsector so i can unplug either and still boot.
