The recommended method to expand Macintosh HD is to backup and remove your Windows partition with WinClone, expanding your OS X volume and restoring the Windows partition. This can also be done with dd and fdisk. Both methods require an external drive. A very non-conventional method exists to expand Macintosh HD by using the internal Logical Volume ...

The 200 GB of your hard drive spaces were partially formatted with NTFS and went unrecognized due to a failed installation. There are couple of options which may work out. First: A fresh install of the OS X after you have backed up the Macintosh HDD. Second, a third party software that can reformat the 200 GB of HDD space to OS X Extended Journaled.

The partition map is completely valid - the CoreStorage stack is messed up though. After creating a CoreStorage stack (e.g by enabling FileVault) the CoreStorage logical volume group should contain at least one physical volume, one logical volume family and a logical volume. In your case the last two are missing due to CS stack corruption. The output of ...

The question mark does not necessarily mean that the drive itself is damaged. It could also just mean that the data stored on the drive is not structured correctly. If you have edited partition tables, moved partitions or changed system files that could happen. There's really no need for you to use Ubuntu to format the drive. It seems to me that you think ...

Try partitioning from recovery mode: hold Cmd + R at startup and use Disk Utility. First aid could solve the issue as well. Hope that helps.

Ok, after spending the afternoon looking how to solve this, I found that the easy way was to create a new partition from Windows' side in exFat format. And since the format exFat is modifiable on Mac, unlike NTFS, I can then erase it and then change the format to whichever I want.

The partition map as well as the diskutil & diskutil cs listings looks completely valid. Explanation: disk0: SSD part of a Fusion disk disk1: HDD part of a Fusion disk disk2: OS X base system (a recovery system mounted from disk1s3 or "downloaded" from Apple via Internet Recovery Mode) disk3: CoreStorage volume on disk0s2 & disk1s2 disk4 - disk16: ...

I was able to install Windows after doing two things. I'm not positive which one did the trick as I did them both in between an attempt to run bootcamp. These are the things I did in order: Install reFind... doing this added the missing EFI partition that was mentioned I was missing in the comments for this question. Use the reFind partition editor to fix ...

Your partition table seems to be hosed: the type of disk0s2 should be: 2: Apple_CoreStorage Macintosh HD 86.5 GB disk0s2 instead of 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 86.5 GB disk0s2 I recommend to backup Macintosh HD with Time Machine immediately. Booted to Internet Recovery Mode erase your disk. ...

It is because the Linux file system is something that OS X cannot natively read. The easiest thing to do is to is load up a live Linux CD and change the partition to something OS X can read like ExFAT, or MSDOS. Once that change has been made, OS X should be able to see it; allowing you to manipulate the partition. The other option is to load up FUSE for ...

Did you completely wiped it via the Apple Disk utilities and formatted it Mac Journaled? It might look like you kept a partition of the disk (FAT32 or NTFS)

The partition disk2s5 has the wrong partition type. It should be 53746F72-6167-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC instead of FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFF! To solve this boot to Macintosh HD (disk0s2/disk1), open Terminal and enter: to get an overview: diskutil list below I assume the external disk has the disk identifier disk2 sudo gpt -r show /dev/disk2 ...

Though similar to the linked question your partition table has some specific differences: you have a second Recovery HD with a false partition type and your main volume is part of a CoreStorage stack. First you have to determine the proper system versions of the Recovery HDs and then remove the older or - if identical - remove the one with the wrong ...

Your GUID partition table and the MBR are bogus. Your second partition disk0s2 has the wrong partition type. Instead of FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFF the type should be 53746F72-6167-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC. To modify the partition table destroy and create a new proper one. Afterwards you have to re-add the partitions in the old boundaries but with ...

You should be able to resize the CoreStorage stack by booting to a second boot volume (e.g. Internet Recovery Mode) after modifying the partition table. Afterwards you have to re-add the partitions in the old boundaries but with proper types. Preparation: Restart to Internet Recovery Mode by pressing alt cmd R at startup. The prerequisites are the ...

I would assume the same procedure would be followed as the answer posted to this question "Merge Partitions with Disk Utility in El Capitan Gives operation Failed error". In other words, the commands would be as shown below. diskutil erasevolume "Free Space" "" /dev/disk0s7 diskutil erasevolume "Free Space" "" /dev/disk0s6 diskutil erasevolume "...

I had this problem, and I think the simplest fix is this: Click the "+" sign on the bottom of the Partition Layout, resize the second partition to what you want, and then select the format to be "Free Space". You will see that the second partition in the layout is replaced by empty space. Then, just select "Apply".

Answer to Posted Question When you enter the diskutil command to resize your boot partition disk0s2, the recovery partition disk0s3 will automatically be moved. You do not want to move this recovery partition to the end of the disk using a separate command. In other words, you are trying to do the wrong thing. See Merge partitions with Macintosh HD for the ...

Backup the content of Data Open Disk Utility Choose the superior disk and hit "Partition": Click on the Data partition and hit the - button: Click Apply The Data partition will be removed, the ...

Your hard drive probably contains five partition: "EFI" "OS X 10.6" "OS X 10.9" "Share" "Recovery HD" Two of them aren't mounted automatically to /Volumes after booting: EFI and Recovery HD. After booting one of the three bootable file systems ("OS X 10.6", "OS X 10.9", "Recovery HD") - all other auto-mounted volumes ("Share" and non-booted boot volumes)...

you still need to install a legal copy of windows so bootcamp can run windows. That is why the disk request. once windows is installed, bootcamp will run no problem.

I followed Klanomath's reply above to successfully recover my Macintosh HD. I had tried to resize it from ubuntu (Bootcamp) and completely stopped seeing my Macintosh HD partition. I had tried several posts and tools to write and rewrite partition tables without success and was about to give up. I followed the steps #5 to #8 from the post. I did # 5 and ...
