    I have searched around and I can't seem to find any solutions.

    I have Windows 7 on my wife's iMac and for some reason the BootCamp partition is no longer visible in OS X. This of course means that tools such as QuickBoot or BootChamp won't work.

    The only way to boot into Windows is to restart OS X and hold down the Option key. Is there any way to get OS X to start seeing this partition as a BootCamp partition again?

    Did you install and then attempt to remove NTFS-3G by any chance? That will cause your Windows partition to become invisible on the Mac side, but still work, as you said.

    Did Windows 7 go into hibernation mode? I ask because I found that on my MBP whenever windows goes into hibernation mode the computer thinks it shut off and will bootup in OS X unless I specify. While in OS X the bootcamp partition doesn't show. The upside is that when I want to boot back into windows it just resumes from hibernation instead of doing a full restart.
