darcygibbs posted a topic in Boot CampOkay, so I installed Windows 10 using Boot Camp initially from 10.11.5, everything was fine but I didn't know how to get back into OSX after so I ended up resetting the MBR with EasyBCD trying to use the Vista boot loader instead so I could choose between Widnows and Mac from there, and then I was really stuck on Windows cause I seemed to do this wrong, even pressing alt/option before Apple logo wont get the Macintosh HD to show up. So then I booted into internet recovery and figured reinstalling OSX would work and rebuilding the boot order back from OSX/Boot Camp. I ended up doing so on a third partition so I wouldnt lose data. I now have OSX 10.11.5, Windows 10, and OSX 10.8.5 all on my Macbook Pro but am stuck in 10.8.5 now. My 10.11.5 installation shows up on Startup Disk and I can tell my computer to restart into that OS but it ends up just reverting back to my 10.8.5 install. I tried installing boot loaders to see if I could get into the other OS's that way but to no avail. Only one that seemed to get me closer was REFit, I can see the Recovery Partition (unbootable), Untitled (10.8.5 Bootable) and legacy OS which has a Windows logo so I assume this is my Win10 installation but I can't boot into this either so it all seems fairly useless. Using rEFit's Partition Inspector I got the following information regarding my partitions. *** Report for internal hard disk *** Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT) 2 409640 963586359 Unknown 3 963586360 964855895 Mac OS X Boot 4 964855896 1377601127 Basic Data 5 1377863272 1388654151 Mac OS X HFS+ 6 1388916296 1463879591 Mac OS X HFS+ 7 1463879592 1465149127 Mac OS X Boot Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 409639 ee EFI Protective 2 409640 963586359 ac Apple RAID 3 963586360 964855895 ab Mac OS X Boot 4 964855896 1377601127 0c FAT32 (LBA) MBR contents: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable Partition at LBA 40: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 1, type EFI System (FAT) Partition at LBA 409640: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 2, type Unknown Listed in MBR as partition 2, type ac Apple RAID Partition at LBA 963586360: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 3, type Mac OS X Boot Listed in MBR as partition 3, type ab Mac OS X Boot Partition at LBA 964855896: Boot Code: None File System: Unknown Listed in GPT as partition 4, type Basic Data Listed in MBR as partition 4, type 0c FAT32 (LBA) Partition at LBA 1377863272: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 5, type Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 1388916296: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 6, type Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 1463879592: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 7, type Mac OS X Boot Help me out please, I just want to have an easy dual boot between OSX 10.11.5 and Windows 10. I thought the 10.8.5 installation would help me recover the Apple bootloader/bootcamp but cant figure that out. Thanks in advance.
