    recently i gave first ubuntu and then windows 7 a shot on my macbook. i partitioned the drive using bootcamp, then repartitioned the non-OSX-part with the ubuntu and windows installer.

    At the moment windows and OSX ar on my macbook, both are bootable and work, though the partition table in OSX' diskutil seems messed up. It shows that there is still a linux swap partition left. The windows NTFS partition is mounted on bootup but shows random (not human readable) folders in finder. Windows in contrast shows the partitions as they should be (and probably are, considering everything is working).

    How can i fix the partition table seen by OSX? How can it be that windows and OSX dont show the same partitions?? Any help appreciated!
