    I have a late 2010 MacBook Air. I was running Windows from an external drive on it and I have erased some unused partitions from my MacBook drive. After restart I notice that my primary partition on mac is no longer mounted and somehow has been transformed from HSF to ExFAT. Does anybody know a method to recover my partition or recover the data from it? I also have 50gb of unallocated space that might be use to install windows but I don't know how to create a mbr partition from terminal for Windows. I've attached some pics with the current partition scheme. Thank you.

    Maybe gParted Live CD can help, as hopefully only the partition table is corrupt. Why did you use Windows in the first place to modify partitions on the MBA?

    All I wanted is to erase some unused partitions but I was very tired and completely forgotten about the partition scheme. So at this point I have only a unmonted partition and the terminal from the Lion Recovery Drive.

    This is what Gparted Live says:
