    Hello everyone,
    Today I've encountered this problem:
    I thought it would be handy to partition another 25 GB off my main Mac partition and so I did.

    (In the order of how the application shows me, top to bottom)
    My disk structures originally: Mac (215GB) BOOTCAMP (35GB)
    Now: Mac (190GB) Bridge(25GB) BOOTCAMP(35GB)

    The trouble is that right before the partition (using disk utility in Mac of course), Windows booted just fine.
    Right now, when I boot into Windows or even boot Windows from Parallels, they just get stuck at a black screen with a flashing underscore '_' (Like how it usually loads, but never loads up)

    Does anybody have any solution to this ?
    I'd be grateful for your attention, thanks in advance !

    You can probably recover using gdisk or rEFIt's tool gptsync.

    You have changed your GPT partition scheme and it is now out of sync with the MBR version which Windows uses to boot.

    Can you post the output from
