To be honest, it really looks like you formatted your OSX Drive.

Before you try repairing anything, I'd start of getting a complete image of the drive, preferrably with dd. Here's a pretty cool guide: Click

Once you've done that, you can boot into windows and fire up Testdisk. It's pretty self explanatory and may be able to recover the lost partition. It also brings PhotoRec, which managed to recover 99% of my files when I was in a similar situation.

Good luck.
