    Hi all,

    I have a bit of a problem.
    While I was trying deleting/formatting a USB stick connected to my rMBP, I accidentally selected the windows partition on my HDD instead of the USB. I then preceded to rename and click "erase," just before realising what I'd done!

    As you can imagine, I was pretty annoyed with myself, but I hoped that I was mistaken and booting into windows would would work as normal... This didn't happen. Is there anything I can do to get back to 'the old days' and recover my Windows instalation/partition?

    Any help you can give will be greately appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Thats why they give you the "Are you sure you want to erase that partition?" message.
