Exclamation Active Command Doesn't Work - 12-13-2010, 04:04 AM

I am having an issue. No matter what I do I can't activate a partition via Windows 7 installer. The code is as follows.
select disk 0
select partition 4
This disk is not a fixed MBR disk.
No matter what I do it doesn't work from remaking the flash drives and activating it via Mac.
Please help!!

I am having the same problem. "The selected disk is not a MBR disk. The ACTIVE command can only be used on fixed MBR disks."
