    Method to restore the Mac OS X from Windows 7 partition?

    I have a mac machine on which Windows 7 also installed in other partition, now the problem is the partition where OS X was configured is not responding and I have the only option to login from windows 7 and then repair the OS X or restore it from here, so tell me how do I proceed in this case?

    hiiiiiiii...my dear friend

    The answer for the Method to restore the Mac OS X from Windows 7 partition is...

    It depends on the OS version. For OS 10.8.2....

    -- Restart holding the command and R keys for 45 seconds.

    -- You should see either a network choice or several other choices.

    -- For the several choices, choose "Disk Utility".

    -- Select the hard drive at left, select "Partition" tab.

    -- Click the "Options" button, choose "GUID", and click OK.

    -- Set the "current scheme" drop list to "1 partition" and the format to "Mac OS Extended (journaled)". Click Apply.

    For the network choice, select your router name, log in (if needed) and you will get the several choices. Proceed as above.

    Either way, after the partition is created and formatted, quit Disk Utility and install OS X.

    If you have OS 10.6.8 or earlier, use the DVD that shipped with the computer instead of command R.

    Hi.............,

    You spoked that your mac has two windows in the disk partition.
    And single partition windows OS X is not working.

    ** Erase the hard drive and install the new software.
    ** You need to reinstall that in that partition.
    ** Use the similar process as you did earlier for partition.

    Apple disk utility allows you to partition a hard drive into multiple volumes.

    Thanks
