I need some help here guys as I am on the other side of the story. i was trying to switch from parallels to a bootcamp setup on my MacBook and decided to create a partition and install win10 using bootcamp. followed all the instruction and then restarted mac so that to install windows. unfortunately i got an error that the sed disk partition cannot be used to install win10 as it is MBR etc..so i searched around and applied what you suggest above believing though that the steps where applying to the partition and not the whole disk!
so now, i lost everything and have no backup and want some help on how to recover my data. the OSX partition had many personal docs and i need them . the last step was to convert from mbr to gpt and the previous one to clean ...can i undo this ? or at least how can i recover my files?
thank you in advance and excuse me for the interruption but it is relevant to what you discuss and i thought some of you might be able to help.
