    Hi, I just reinstalled windows on my MBP, the window disk is not showing at my desktop as the 1st installation, the device in finder shows Macintosh HD and iDisk, windows disk is missing as well, in the start disk there are Mac OsSX and Network Startup with question mark. I can choose to boot mac from my windows. bootcamp partion works fine in fusion. Just no clue how to get the windows disk showing so I could choose to boot from start disk in my mac.

    by the way, anybody knows how to remotely control the linux machine from mac?

    I did search the forums and could not find one.

    Same Problem

    I have the same problem, but a restart didn't help.
    It actually happened first on an external HD with a Windows NTFS partition and a HFS+ partition. I de-fragmented the NTFS partition in Windows and when I booted back up in OSX the partition didn't show up. Anyways, this afternoon I de-fragmented the main Windows partition that is on the Mac HD. Now it does not show up just like the external one.
    I went to disk utility and it says the Windows partition is not mounted and when I push the mount button it asks for my password but nothing seems to happen..
    Anyone got any idea what to do?

    One important note however (which I don't think is part of the problem because this started before), I had leopard with boot camp but I didn't like it, some programs i use are not supported in it. So I reinstalled Tiger but kept the Windows partition intact and it still works, and I even upgraded to Boot Camp 2.1.
