    I used bootcamp to install Win7 and was trying to create additional partition for storing files and using bit locker.

    After installing Win7, I used Disk Manager to find hidden partition and formatted the partition, always had a problem. Can't boot either Win7 nor IOS.

    Ended up reformatting a complete HDD and start IOS over.

    Please advise what I have done wrong ? Is it possible to create additional partition to use bit locker in Win7 ?

    Thank you,

    Your MacBook Air will not run iOS.

    #1 answer: Leave the hidden partition alone! That's OS X's recovery partition. Do not touch.

    What you'd do is partition the visible Macintosh HD partition.

    Follow the instructions in Disk Utility Help.
