Default OSX and Win 7 dual boot question - 05-01-2010, 12:40 PM

I had my dell mini 10v dual booting between windows 7 and Snow Leopard. After messing something up when trying to change partition size my machine would no longer boot.

I have now re-installed windows 7 from my Dell disk and that runs fine but it cannot see the SL partition. I believe my SL partition should work ok but how can I access it now? Do I need to go through the whole process of reinstalling it again?

now you need to to go to command and do this

-select disk 0
-list partition (see what partition number is your SL)
-select partition (Here you put the number of your partition with out the parenthisis)

-plug in your USB SL Installer
-select USB
-run your netbook installer
