    Default [Help.] Mac stuck on white screen.

    Fix my laptop, screw up my desktop. Meh.

    I decided i wanted to increase the size of my Windows partition in BootCamp, so i deleted, and made a new one. Restarted my Mac to boot into Windows installation disc, and now i'm stuck on a white screen. Holding down option to choose boot disc doesn't show my original HDD. Booting into Windows 7 install disc has only worked twice. Lists my HDD, but still can't boot from it. I have the Snow Leopard install dmg on my computer, but i don't know how to make it bootable on my Mac, on Linux. I've reset my PRAM, followed a few different solutions on forums, and still nothing.

    If anyone can offer some help, it would be most appreciated. I've got a lot of important stuff on my HDD, i really don't want to format. i dunno if i even can.

    I didn't use BootCamp to make the partition, if that makes a difference.

    I've got rEffit installed, but it doesn't show up at all when i boot, which is pointing to a problem with the boot sector. Or whatever the hell it's called.

    So you can boot into Snow Leopard fine? It just won't let you install Windows?

    I guess i wasn't very clear. No, i can't boot into my OS X partition at all. It's like it's not even there. I can boot into the Windows 7 installer, but i can't do anything besides install Windows over my OS X installation.

    I think if i could find a way to create a Snow Leopard install disc on Linux, i could get it working. I think when i erased my prior Windows install, it didn't fix the boot stuff, but i'm not sure.

    So you don't have any Mac recovery/install disks?

    Nope. I didn't buy my Mac, and i installed Snow Leopard from a flash drive months ago. Don't think it matters though; Normally a Windows install requires a partition to be formatted as NTFS/FAT, and tells you so in the installer. It isn't saying anything about it when i click on my main partition. So, i think Disk Utility formatted the wrong partition. But i dunno if it can format the HDD you're running on, so not sure. Could just be a simple problem.

    But unless you know of a way to format a USB as HFS+ on Ubuntu, and then burn a .DMG onto a USB, i think i'm fucked.
