I was trying to partition my macintosh HD for bootcamp but for some odd reason it failed so i panicked and deleted the partitions on disk utilities now I'm stuck with Mac OS boot partition and a grey un formatable free space with a saying next to it saying

"The full size of the Fusion Drive is not available for repartitioning"

Am scared and trying to boot with Mavericks USB to erase my drive and restore from time machine....

Please help me if you guys know any there options

PS i tried using ipartition but still no luck....:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

I think you probably should have used the BootCamp Assistant to create and remove the Windows partition and regain the space for OS X on your Fusion drive. I don't know if that will now be successful after using other utilities, but see what it tells you.

Solved!

BTW guys, sorry for the late update

problem solved perfectly after i booted to windows installation (without installing windows) and using the installation to delete everything, like literally everything, the SSD and the HD making the two separated. then boot again with my OS X Mavericks USB the installation automatically restore core storage for me (AKA restore the two deleted drives to fusion drive) reinstall mavericks, restore from time machine, all good!

gave me all the panics for nothing!!

feel free to PM me if you are fortunate enough to run into a problem like mine
