Why does bootcamp say there is no bootable device when I insert my Windows 7 disk? 

by on February 13, 2011

Q: After several problems with windows 7 on a bootcamp partition i have decided to start it again and re install it using bootcamp on my iMac late 2009 27inch, although when my computer restarts after i have made a new partition and put in my windows 7 disk, it comes up saying “No Bootable Device– Insert disk and press any key”, i have no idea as to how to get passed this page because pressing keys seems to do nothing, i have found many people with problems like this but none have had my problem where i am trying to put windows 7 and a new partition.

i would like to know a fix or something for this (if possible) and how i would work around it so that i can finally install windows 7 on my computer.


Why does the Windows part of my hard drive corrupt the OS X side? 

by on February 8, 2011

Q: Hey, Im Running A Windows 7 bootcamp partition on my iMac 27inch from the middle of last year, and im having some problems. i fear Windows 7 has had some problems with my dive or something because after a while of use my mac side of the drive becomes corrupted and i am forced to delete and re format everything on my mac partition and then re install Mac OSX onto it, afterwards i would restore all of my apps and such back onto my mac side using time Machine. (after this my Mac side Performs very well until the Pc side corrupts it again) i have a feeling the Windows side makes this happen because after all of this the Windows Side is untouched and works fine, although i use my Mac side the most my Bootcamp Windows 7 side is where i play most of my games such as COD black ops and just cause 2,

in plain english i would like some sort of fix or patch that fixes Windows perhaps killing the mac side of my drive, do i have to Start my PC side again? help, ( i normally would of already re installed my PC side but installing windows 7 to it was a Huge pain.)

Q: I have some some strange color defect when running Windows 7 in bootcamp. I’ve had no problems with the system until now but now it has some strange problem where it looks like there are layers of color.

I’m using a 27 inch monitor and the problem seems to have happened after a major bootcamp update.


BootCamp partitioning a Mac startup disk 

by on August 3, 2009

Q: When I run BootCamp to install Windows on my Mac I get a message saying “Tthe startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition.” How do I get BootCamp working so that I can install Windows on my Mac?

A: I think you might have left out a portion of the error message. I think the rest of the error message says “The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Jounraled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.”

The reason you are getting this error message is because BootCamp is only created to work with the default system settings and that is having the  a single partition on your boot disk not multiple. So in order to get this to work you actually have to combine your partitions back into one and then BootCamp will be able to create a new partition for Windows and you should be ready to go.
