[Howto] Recover HFS+ partition error after Vista installation

This guide is for restoring our nice, working hackintosh's darwin bootloader.

Basically, Vista RTM foobars our working MBR's bootloader and you get "HFS+ partition error".
In following, I will assume we have one HDD with two partitions: part#1 = OSX and part#2 = Vista

1. Boot off OSX dvd disc in single user mode (press F8 and type -s)
2. At single user prompt
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
flag 1
update
write
quit
4 reboot

At this point OSX should boot up, just like prior to Vista installation.
1 In a terminal window,
su root
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
flag 2
quit
2 reboot

Vista will say "\Window\system32\winload" corrupted, and it will tell you to insert Vista disc and recover.
Follow directions from Vista and recover, then reboot. Check Vista boots and works fine.

1. Boot off OSX dvd disc for single user one last time (press F8 and type -s)
2. At single user prompt
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
flag 1
quit
3. reboot

You will discover that Vista recovered and left MBR's darwin bootloader intact smile.gif.
Happy ending.
