    sounds like the boot partition on the windows side got corrupted and now doesnt show as a bootable drive. You are pretty much gonna have to reinstall windows.

    When turning on your mac, hold the option key, and there should be a choice. If you deleted your windows partition you would have to re-install it. Hope this helps

    How do you start in Disk Utility? And what do you mean, it does not show up there? The actual HDD or the Mac OS X partition? Can you still boot into Windows?

    And do you know what exact Mac you have?

    And do you have backups and/or another Mac?

    What question/post does this refer to? The OPTION key question?

    Do you mean the ERASE tab is greyed out or do you get some kind of error message?

    I know you probably are frustrated now, but it would be helpful to take the time to explain yourself and answer questions, thus we can provide more accurate help and ask less questions.

    Ah, see I misunderstood the whole time, that you cannot even boot into Mac OS X.

    When booted into Mac OS X, what does Boot Camp Assistant allow you to do? Does it offer to remove an existing Boot Camp / Windows partition?

    What errors?

    Can you make a screenshot and attach it to your next post?

    Punctuation helps people to read your issue and understand it properly.

    I'm wondering if the partition map is corrupted such that OSx can boot and run, but Windows partition is messed up and the errors in the partition map itself prevent it from being fixed. It might require saving your data to an external and wiping the entire disk and starting over reinstalling both osx and windows.
