Boot Camp, deleted Mac partition
Like the title says, i "accdiently" got rid of the Mac and Recovery partitions... so now i'm left with Windows 7 only.
I'm using late 2011 MacBok Pro 13"
Any suggestions how can i get Mac Os back?(Doesnt matter witch version)
I've got 8GB USB-stick and just dropped Mac Os x Lion on it and when Booted up, pressed ALT - shows only windows partition.
I also did the CMD + ALT + P + R but it just keeps restarting.
MacBook Pro, iPhone4

Once booted to this USB then you can open up disk utility and play around again with your partitions.

Some rambling ( have not the energy to make it too tidy)....
Don't know how you did this "accidently", only thing I can think off is that you tried to fiddle with the windows partition which screws around with the partition tables.
I hope you do have a Time Machine backup on some external storage. If so then you can restore that onto another external storage.
If that is the case (boot from other external OS X) then you can use Winclone to make a partition backup of Windows which can be restored on another partition.
Once that has been done you can use the time machine to restore OS X, afterwards make a new windows partition using bootcamp manager (no need to install windows) and subsequently restore with Winclone your windows backup.
