Question: Macintosh HD missing after Boot Camp

Hello,


This weekend I used Boot Camp to install Windows 10 on a 66GB partition of my hard drive. During the partitioning process, I received an error message that partitioning could not be completed due to an error. I decided to put off troubleshooting until later and just closed Boot Camp, but next time I restarted my machine it booted automatically into Windows 10, completed setup, and Boot Camp is accessible from within Windows.


Now my problem is that the only portion of my hard drive that seems to be accessible is the Boot Camp partition. It's correctly reading the size of 66GB but when I attempt to restart and hold option I don't get the "Macintosh HD" as a startup disk. After booting into internet recovery, I can see the Boot Camp partition and what seems to be the Recovery partition despite that not appearing as an option in startup.


I'm on a late-2013 iMac running OS X El Capitan. I have no idea what my next step should be now, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I've done this to access Disk Utility. It lists "Virtual Whole Disk" in red with only the 66GB Boot Camp partition under it. It also shows what appears to be the recovery drive, but I haven't found it as a boot option anywhere. Also, the Startup Disk menu only lists Windows as an option.

Click on Utilities -> Terminal in Recovery Console, and run


diskutil list

diskutil apfs list

diskutil cs list


Copy (Command+C) the output, quit Terminal, start Safari (Get Online Help), Paste (Command+V) the output as a reply to this discussion.

Thanks for the help thus far, I got busy with the work week but am finishing this up now.


I was able to recover all of the data from the hard drive to an external drive, so now all I need to do is reformat the internal drive so I can reinstall macOS. Since Disk Utility doesn't recognize the drive at all outside of the Boot Camp partition, is there a way to use Terminal to format the drive? Thanks again!
