    Guys i really need help and fast. I made a 180GB partition for win7 yesterday and the cd turned to be corrupted so the installation failed. However, the restore function in boot camp failed and now it doesn't even detect that i have separated the hdd to 320-180 and it only depics 320 as my max hdd (the amount i left for OS X). So can you please tell me how to restore my hdd to full 500??

    You can try using disk utility to reclaim the lost disk space.

    Try booting into the recovery partition and use the disk utility from there.

    Hold down command+R while booting the machine.
