    Hey there,

    I was creating a 10gb partition for windows, and during the process my computer (Macbook 2.16Ghz Core Duo) froze! Now i can't seem to access the partition or erase it! What can I do? Thanks in advance guys! Appreciate it much

    This happened on both my wife's and my Macbook Pro with Leopard installed. So much for installing XP. Oh well.

    Boot your mac with the installer disc, once booted, run Disk Utility (from menu bar). "Repair" your disk.

    You can try a reboot and a disk repair within your OS, but this didn't work for me, the repair option was not available... hrmmm

    The above worked on both machines for me.

    just wondering, but how long did you wait to determine it was truly frozen?

    Do an upgrade reinstall. Mine gave me a kernal panic during the Boot Camp partition creation, and I was left with only one partion and 80 GB of "missing" space. I did an upgrade reinstall, and it returned the missing space to me and it worked the second time.
