So, I had to reinstall Vista on my mac today — hadn’t touched it since I moved onto the Late 08 model… and once again, I started getting the common partition errors while Vista loads the bootloader.
Unrecognizable partition table for drive 80. Please rebuild using a Microsoft-compatible FDISK tool
Luckily I remembered a quick and easy fix that I found when setting it up the first time. Download and install EasyBCD. Open up the Manage BootLoader section… select ReInstall Vista BootLoader, and you should be all set !
Hope this helps !
