Question about Computers & Internet
What the repair does is basically an update setup of your 'Hackintosh' Snow Leopard. If the problem is the installed Mac OS, and not the original Windows system, then you can do an OS update. Procedure is illustrated in the pages linked below:
Upgrading Snow Leopard to 10.6.5 (Hackintosh)
How to Update Hackintosh (OSX86)
If instead the problem is the original Windows OS, ensure first that the two systems are installed in different partitions. You can reinstall the Windows OS either using a Dell recovery disk, or using a generic Windows install disk. If Windows is starting, and if the computer has the original Dell system installed, you can also repair Windows using the Dell repair utility, listed in the start menu programs.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
