    Alright. Long time lurker on the main page, first time problem poster.:(

    I installed Windows 7 on Boot Camp and Parallels a long time ago. Since I got my Mac.

    I'm trying to access it today but my partition seems to be missing. I am missing 80 GB (my partition) so I know its still there but I can't boot into Windows and in Parallels, it tells me that it can't find the hard disk.

    I see this thread but I don't think its the same problem and I'm not sure where to go from here.

    Any and all help would be massively appreciated ASAP.

    Launch Disk Utility, select your HDD and go to the "Partition" tab. Post a screenshot.

    It reappeared for a second for some reason but going into parallels and starting caused it to disappear. It has never done this before obviously.

    EDIT: It's there again but then it disappears. And parallels doesn't seem to work now.
