    Looks like iPartition didn't create an entry for your Boot Camp partition in the MBR. That would explain why you can't boot from it, but doesn't explain why OS X can't see it.

    There was a previous thread about something like this and there was a setting that needed to be turned on in iPartition. Let me see if I can find it.

    I can't help with iPartition, but you could try gptsync from rEFIt, gptrefresh from Winclone or gdisk from http://www.rodsbooks.com/gdisk/ to sync the MBR entries to the GPT ones.

    Just as with any partition operation there is a risk that you can lose data, so proceed at your own risk without a backup.
