Default Dell Mini 10v won't boot, boot loop. HELP! - 12-17-2012, 02:27 AM

Hi guys,

Basically my mini 10v will not boot into windows, it will not fix itself from bootable usb and it will not restore.

Had installed osx 10.6.3, paritioned it as i wanted dual boot, couldn't get dual boot to work so wanted to go back to just one os. Problem being i had to have NBI on startup from usb to boot osx. Osx then updated itself so i was stuck as this wouldn't work, could'nt boot into either windows or mac with NBI.

Therefore i took the harddrive out of the mini formatted it on my main pc to ntfs with updated mbr. Made a bootable windows 7 32 bit usb and bootable osx with transmac etc will not load from usb.

Any help please all apreciated did have a search but still having issues!

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

you did go in to the BIOS and made sure that Legacy USB is enabled right? otherwise you can wait until the cows come home and it still wont boot from USB
