During the Boot Camp installation by mistake I erased the Macintosh HD partition, but before continuing the installation of Windows I stopped the process.

Using a bootable live CD I saw that all the partitions are still there. I changed the boot options and managed to see the Mac HD partition on the boot screen (when pressing alt).

My present partition information is like this:

Andres-MacBook-Pro:~ arlourenco$ sudo gpt -r -vv show disk0
gpt show: disk0: mediasize=750156374016; sectorsize=512; blocks=1465149168
gpt show: disk0: Suspicious MBR at sector 0
gpt show: disk0: Pri GPT at sector 1
gpt show: disk0: Sec GPT at sector 1465149167
       start        size  index  contents
           0           1         MBR

           2          32         Pri GPT table
          34           6

I tried to run again the Boot Camp Assistant but it gives me the following error:

The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.

Can you help me to fix the problem?
