    Hello folks!
    I've reinstalled windows today on my iMac, as Windows freezed before, every time I was booting up via Bootcamp.

    I'm using the 1.3 Beta, as my older Bootcamp Version has expired.

    I've got a pretty serious problem here. I can't access my OSX partition anymore, not from the "option key - boot" or from the "startup disk" utility.
    I've read somewhere that all you data is gone when your windows partition size is equal to the overall disk size, which isn't the case here.
    My windows partition is just 25GB (NTFS - like adjusted in the windows setup) and my overall disk size is 250GB (therefore 225GB for MacOSX).

    Is there any chance of accessing my OSX partition anymore?

    I've got some important files,programs and music on that partition I possibly couldn't get hold of anymore.

    Please help!

    If the Mac OS X partition is not showing up under either of the startup disk options, I have a feeling something happened to the partition. You can boot off of your OS X install cd and use Disk Utility to verify that the partition is still there.

    Thanks.
    I don't want to do anything wrong, so what do I have to do afterwards?
    Can I "restore" the disk or something afterwards?

    Ok, I've put the Tiger installation disk into my mac and accessed the disk utility. It just shows me my whole harddisk and the untitled windows partition, but I can't seem to find the MacOSX partition. Any ideas?
