Default Windows 7 SP1 Installation Error 0x800F0A12 With OSX, Unbuntu, 7 boot. - 03-14-2011, 02:49 AM

I have been trying to install windows 7 SP1 and i keep getting the following error:
Windows 7 SP1 RTM Installation Error 0x800F0A12

It says its: The system partition isn’t automatically mounted, or made accessible to Windows, during startup.

What is going on? Does it have to do with my triple boot? I am using chameleon. It would be nice to get SP1 going so i can use it with my hyper v server.

10v w/2gs of ram and a multi touchpad (from 1010) running OSX snow leopard, Ubunto remix, and 7 RTM.

I had the same. You need to make the partition active; your OSX partion will current be the active one

Use diskpart. Make win partion active. Install should be fine then make osx partion active
