    Can somebody PLEASE help me.
    I have ran bootcamp, and installed windows 8.1 on my Mac Mini 2012 2.3 i7quad.
    The installation ran fine but I when I booted back into Mac I cannot see the Windows option in Mac boot disk.
    In disk utility the 1tb drive I can see is equally divided into Mac and Windows, and in Mac Finder, I can see the Windows drive as a separate drive. But I cannot see it when I boot up in recovery mode or in to Mac and startup disk.
    The attached PDF shows the untitled drive in Disk Utility, and the untitled drive with windows files intact on it.
    If any of you nerds can help I will owe you a beer.
    Cheers.
    Bob

    Have you tried holding the 'Alt' key as soon as you turn on your Mac? Does it show as a partition there?

    Please show the partition layout in disk utility. I can see you use an aftermarket 1TB SSD and I hope this is not the problem. I use an aftermarket SSD as well, capacity 480GB "only". It works with OSX and BootCamp, dual boot.
