Deleting the Boot Camp partition from the Library removes it temporarily. Fusion will re-discover the VM again. To really re-build your Boot Camp partition VM after your partitioning "lesson", delete the Boot Camp folder under ~/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp/ (hint: you can use the Finder's Go > Go to Folder... item to get this folder quickly).
When you click on the Boot Camp partition next time, Fusion should say "processing the boot camp partition this will take a few minutes..." (paraphrasing).
That did it. thanks!
Yeah, this should be in the FAQ under tampering with the Boot Camp partition.
