Hello, everyone !!

 

I decided to install windows 7 on my Macbook (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB, 1067 MHz DDR3 OSX 10.8.4). I allocated 122 GB for windows and i ran bootcamp and everything was going alright. All of a sudden everything froze, nothing happened for  about an hour, i knew if i powered it off things would get messy, but then i had to do it. When it booted again, no windows partition was created, understandably so. When i checked the free space on my Mac HDD, i found out that the 122 GB i had allocated for my windows was not freed, it just occupied as used space my Mac HDD. I tried everything in disk utility, but then in that there is just one Mac Partition with 250 GB, there is no windows partition to delete. The space that i had allocated for windows has not been freed and i do not have anything to erase in the disk utility. How do i free the 122 GB, i have attached screen shots.

Available space should be around 145 GB but then the space i had allocated for the windows partition is lost. How do i recover it? I dont have any backups hence formatting it will be exceedingly painful. Any troubleshooting advices will be appreciated. Cheer !!
