Hello, I am quite desesperate because I just wanted to install a new Win 7 on my win partition on macbook pro 2007. It's impossible to boot from an external optical drive to install it. I tried to use refit to boot direct from the cd. I have a bootmgr missing before win can install. I don't know why...It don't see the the win partition maybe ? Moreover, As I have 3 partitions, I cannot use bootcamp (I think it is the reason why..?).
If I understand this topic. The solution is
1. to format everything to have only on HFS partition,
2. install a free OSX on it.
3. Use bootcamp to create a win partition.
4. Install win 7
5. Use a partition tool (ipartition for example) to create my exchange FAT partition.
This solution appear to be really heavy. Do you have any other easiest solutions. I just want to install a fresh win 7 on this computer.
I would really appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance.
