I have Windows 7 Home Premium installed in a Bootcamp partition on my iMac. A couple of months ago, I restored an image of my harddrive, which I've done multiple times before with success, but on PC's. It restored the image successfully, and windows worked, however when starting up my machine, it hangs at either the grey screen where you hear the gong, or it hangs at a black screen with a flashing cursor.
Thinking it was that version of Windows, I tried going into Bootcamp through Mac, removing the Windows partition and starting again from the ground up. It didn't fix the booting issue. It doesn't appear to be an issue with Windows to me, as we've had it working fine in the past, and also once windows starts, there's no problems to be seen.
It's been getting a little worse as time goes on, and this morning it took almost 10 restarts to successfully start into Windows. It starts into Mac just fine when told to, but really doesn't like windows anymore. I'm wondering if there's a chance it's something sitting inside the Mac OSX bootloader (Darwin, if I'm correct?) I've looked up on Google and on here about how to clean or repair the bootloader for mac, but to no avail.
Thanks in advance.
