    I just got a new mac retina computer and installed windows boot camp.


    I went into the Mac Disk Utility and resized the Mac Partition. After doing this boot camp will no longer boot saying

    No bootable device -- Insert boot disk and press any key.

    Is there a 3rd party utility to fix the boot partition for boot camp?

    Seems you didn't read the warning message haha:

    When you created the new partition, you changed the partition map and now your system doesn't know where to find the Windows partition.

    Check out this post.

    If you don't have any important data/programs on your Windows partition, it may be easier to just delete the partition (via Boot Camp assistant) and reinstall Windows.

    You may still be able to boot into Windows using rEFIt, but I'm not sure.
