Clear msftres and other GPT 'flags' set by GNU parted

Glad you got it working eventually. Definitely don't use gparted to change the partition table, because it doesn't seem to be aware of the GPT/MBR hybrid that OS X uses to allow Windows booting. You should've used diskutil instead (if it would even let you make that change). I'm also a bit surprised that setting the boot flag made Windows boot again and didn't prevent OS X from booting (which is what it did in my case), but whatever.

I think your theoretical solution would probably work, but it might not be worth it for you at this point.

Also, it's possible that I did the procedure mentioned in the hint when booted from a different physical disk from the one that had the partition with the msftres flag set. And yeah, I was using Leopard (10.5.1 at the time).
