    My Macbook 12" got a kernel panic while I was using Boot Camp to make a new Windows partition to install Windows 8. Now Disk Utility shows I have a a single partition for OS X with 214GB, while the drive has 251GB capacity. Boot Camp assistant still thinks I have no windows partition and doesn't give me the option to delete that partition.

    I beg you help me! Please:(

    You might want to boot to Recovery and run Disk Utility First Aid on your SSD before doing anything else. If the SSD checks out OK, try selecting the partition option from Disk Utility and remove the blank Boot Camp partition that was created. You'll also want to make sure that the recovered space is once more integrated back into the main drive.
