    After resizing my OS X partition and creating a new one (for data) I can not boot Windows any more. I do not understand all that partition table stuff, but I think the problem is related to it. Can anybody assist me? Can I fix it through terminal -- even I have never used terminal before :) ?

    you cannot manipulate partitions after boot camp or this happens

    and to start boot camp, your drive needs only 1 partition which means your goal of having a 3rd partition for data will not work with official boot camp

    to fix it, you'll have to see if a terminal wizard comes to your rescue or you'll have to reinstall it if you need it asap

    ah, ok?! I can not have three partitions (Mac OS, Win, data) on one SSD?

    Is there a non official way to do so?

    edit: I will open another thread for asking how to setup my MBA without this partition limitation
