    please help, bootcamp issue. I lost 30gb...
    Hey guys I've been reading this forum for a while but just registered

    Anyways, I installed bootcamp on my mac os x but during the installation of Windows OS either the Windows XP Disc or my macbook froze, i had to force restart.

    When I booted onto Mac OS X again, the 30gb i had partitioned in boot camp for the Windows OS became unusable. In disk utility I cannot mount the disk in order to erase the unusable 30gb partion. I even bought DiskWarrior to try to fix the problem but did not work.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Run Bootcamp, select remove the bootcamp partition. See if that works.

    this should work perfectly, if it does not, you have to format the entire drive and start over.
