After TestDisk no POST

#1 Post by kurbads »

Edit: False alarm! All's OK after next reboot! Fantastic tool Testdisk...

Hi, after successfully restoring partitions on a GPT drive it does not get past BIOS POST message.

If however I keep it unplugged during boot and reconnect it at OS selection menu, it shows up and works properly.

It does not show errors if checked with Diskutil.

What could it mean?

OS: Lion 64bit hackintosh, Mobo: Asus P5K3 Deluxe, HDD: 4TB Seagate

History: I accidentally deleted Mac GPT partitions on Documents drive while in Windows XP instead of other mac hdd I connected to repartition.
