your OS X partition hasn't been set to the primary partition. You have to have your partition set as primary in order to boot from it. You probably have it set to a logical partition instead.


I'd help you out, but I'm currently grappling with the same problem myself! I've noticed that some users have had success with Acronis software to set a partition as primary from logical. You may want to try that out.
