As a 2 decades of MS-Windows user I have switched to Mac OS X a month ago. And my knowledge is not enough to fix my

  big problem which I encountered yesterday and my brand new MBPro is dead now.

I installed Win-7 x64 on Boot Camp. My mistake at first is I have allocated very little space to Windows from my

  precious SSD disk. Yesterday I have tried to increase the Boot Camp partition from 80GB to 250GB. What exactly i did

is;

1- Started in Windows 7, taken a full Windows system backup into an external USB Disk.

2- Switched to OS X and created a disk image (dmg) from my existing Boot Camp partition (Using Std. OS X's Disk

Utility) this was my second backup. Since I don't want to get in trouble with activation of all my MS Office, Windows

7, Games etc. I was planning to restore one of those to my New Windows with larger disk capacity.

3- in OS X, I have erased the Boot Camp partition (disk0s4) and enlarged the master HFS+ partition (disk0s2) to

maximum physical disk capacity (~750GB) using Disk Utility

4- Started Boot Camp and performed a clean copy of Windows x64 and this time I have given a disk size of 268GB for

the new Boot Camp partition (simply; 250GB to Boot Camp, 500GB to OS X)

5- Standard installatin went well. Windows installation asked for product key, i skipped this started new windows for

the first time. I shut it down and restart in OS X.

6- Now the first of the series of the problems that eventually ended up with the death of my MBPro is coming up, Disk

Utility refused to restore from DMG file (ref.step 2 - image was created from previous Windows partition so it is

NTFS!) to new pysical Boot Camp partition (also NTFS). It said something like both disks were not identical or smthng

like that. I checked the block sizes etc. Both was 512kb. I googled and found an alternative way to restore and

skipped Disk Utility and switched to terminal window. Executed DD if=dmg of=disk04s to copy content of backup DMG file to new Boot Camp partition. Needles to say, Windows didn't start up, a black

screen appeared and the worst thing is when I started in OS X, Disk Utility was showing only 80GB for the Boot Camp

partition (which has to be 268). The capacity was overwritten by the previous partition's image file and all of a

sudden I happen to lost 250-80=170GB.

7- I decided to go with the other option to install a clean windows and use Windows7@s Backup/restore. To be able to

do this I needed to start over and delete the Boot Camp partition again and resized the master HFS volume to its Max

(of 768) as I already did in step 3-4.

8- Started Boot Camp, this time Boot Camp gave me an error saying 'Can't install Boot Camp to multiple partitioned

disk'. I already knew that Boot Camp requires a single OS X (HFS) partitioned disk so he can manage the partition

table withing his screens. I was amazed with this error cause I knew that I already removed the last Boot Camp partition and resized the main HFS partition to its maximum.

9- The golden shot, I have restarted my OS X. And it never came back. Thanks God, my repair partition was still healthy so I booted with command+r in repair mode. Now I have terminal windows open.is;

I have run diskutil list and I couldn't believe the thing I saw, Boot Camp (or Disk Utility not sure) has changed the type of my primary OS X partition to MS-DOS (Fat 32) I guess, it says 'Microsoft Basic Data'.

BtwBTW, I have the OS X Mountain Lion with latest updates (10.8.x).

Until now, I have tried GPARTEDGParted (made a bootable thumb-drive, it didn't run, it has frozen in keyboard selection screen), I have tried TestDisk, it didn't run either, simply returned an error code, made a search about gpt, fdisk etc. but couldn't find any information that's worth to try.

So I'm here and waiting for an answer from you guys, can you suggest me any direction to go, a tool to use to fix my existing partition with the wrong file system type?

So I'm here and waiting for an answer from you guys, can you suggest me any direction to go, a tool to use to fix my existing partition with the wrong file system type?

Mac OS X partition type problem

As a 2 decades of MS-Windows user I have switched to Mac OS X a month ago. And my knowledge is not enough to fix my

big problem which encountered yesterday and my brand new MBPro is dead now.

I installed Win-7 x64 on Boot Camp. My mistake at first is I have allocated very little space to Windows from my

precious SSD disk. Yesterday I have tried to increase the Boot Camp partition from 80GB to 250GB. What exactly i did

is;

1- Started in Windows 7, taken a full Windows system backup into an external USB Disk.

2- Switched to OS X and created a disk image (dmg) from my existing Boot Camp partition (Using Std. OS X's Disk

Utility) this was my second backup. Since I don't want to get in trouble with activation of all my MS Office, Windows

7, Games etc. I was planning to restore one of those to my New Windows with larger disk capacity.

3- in OS X, I have erased the Boot Camp partition (disk0s4) and enlarged the master HFS+ partition (disk0s2) to

maximum physical disk capacity (~750GB) using Disk Utility

4- Started Boot Camp and performed a clean copy of Windows x64 and this time I have given a disk size of 268GB for

the new Boot Camp partition (simply; 250GB to Boot Camp, 500GB to OS X)

5- Standard installatin went well. Windows installation asked for product key, i skipped this started new windows for

the first time. I shut it down and restart in OS X.

6- Now the first of the series of the problems that eventually ended up with the death of my MBPro is coming up, Disk

Utility refused to restore from DMG file (ref.step 2 - image was created from previous Windows partition so it is

NTFS!) to new pysical Boot Camp partition (also NTFS). It said something like both disks were not identical or smthng

like that. I checked the block sizes etc. Both was 512kb. I googled and found an alternative way to restore and

skipped Disk Utility and switched to terminal window. Executed DD if=dmg of=disk04s to copy content of backup DMG file to new Boot Camp partition. Needles to say, Windows didn't start up, a black

screen appeared and the worst thing is when I started in OS X, Disk Utility was showing only 80GB for the Boot Camp

partition (which has to be 268). The capacity was overwritten by the previous partition's image file and all of a

sudden I happen to lost 250-80=170GB.

7- I decided to go with the other option to install a clean windows and use Windows7@s Backup/restore. To be able to

do this I needed to start over and delete the Boot Camp partition again and resized the master HFS volume to its Max

(of 768) as I already did in step 3-4.

8- Started Boot Camp, this time Boot Camp gave me an error saying 'Can't install Boot Camp to multiple partitioned

disk'. I already knew that Boot Camp requires a single OS X (HFS) partitioned disk so he can manage the partition

table withing his screens. I was amazed with this error cause I knew that I already removed the last Boot Camp partition and resized the main HFS partition to its maximum.

9- The golden shot, I have restarted my OS X. And it never came back. Thanks God, my repair partition was still healthy so I booted with command+r in repair mode. Now I have terminal windows open.

I have run diskutil list and I couldn't believe the thing I saw, Boot Camp (or Disk Utility not sure) has changed the type of my primary OS X partition to MS-DOS (Fat 32) I guess, it says 'Microsoft Basic Data'.

I've been desperately looking for a way to change the corrupted type of my existing primary HFS+ partition (I know all my data is healthy and waiting for me if I could manage to reach them)

Here's the outputs of;

diskutil list
