enter image description hereI'm running 10.8.3 Snow Leopard and installed Windows 7 x64 using Bootcamp. Both system are running fine.

I couldn't use the bootcamp-partition inside in Parallels and then I read about Tuxera NTFS blocking it. Therefore I uninstalled Tuxera NTFS. Ever since then the disk utility shows the Bootcamp partition as a FAT-partition (see attached screenshot). Re-installing Tuxera NTFS didn't help either.

Error checking and repairing with the disk utility doesn't help. I tried unmounting the whole drive/all partitions via disk utility on another Mac (using FireWire-boot). It didn't work sadly.

Does anyone have a clue what else I can do? The Bootcamp-Windows is already set up with my work-environment which took a long time so I don't want to reinstall.

Aside from displaying the filesystem type incorrectly is there anything that's not working for you? p.s. you didn't attach the screen shot –  HairOfTheDog Apr 8 '13 at 19:40
    
I attached the screenshot. Parallels doesn't recognize the Bootcamp partition so I can't use it in Parallels. –  Hedge Apr 9 '13 at 8:41
    
Bootcamp still works, right? If you boot into Windows what does Window report as the filesystem type? –  HairOfTheDog Apr 9 '13 at 18:23
    
Bootcamp works. In Windows the partition shows up as NTFS. –  Hedge Apr 11 '13 at 9:21
