I have tried to increase the partition size of the boot camp partition (Windows 7) on my Mac using Ease US Partition Manager.  It rebooted the Mac and then said couldn't update partition at the end.  It then booted back into the Boot camp partition and all looked well except the partition for boot camp was still not resized to be larger.  So I attempted it again and this time I got the error "not enough unallocated space before and after the selected partition for resize move feature".  Now the Macintosh HD and recovery HD are no longer listed to boot from and I cannot boot back into the Apple Operating System (10.8.2).  I've tried starting the MAC using Option+R to load the Disk Utility and there both partitions show up as disk0s2 and disk0s3 and if I try to run a verify or repair disk on each it says "Unrecognized file system" in red for both.  If I boot back into Windows using boot camp I see the Macintosh HD partition and all data is there.  Is there any way to repair the boot manager so Macintosh HD and Windows show up again or do I have to reformat the entire machine?
