Default need help, partitioned SD card for ROM and...

everything is gone. I followed steps 1-5 and nothing worked. then I read the part about "must have SD partitioned using amon-ra recovery" which I did and now everything is gone! nothing on my SD card and no ROM. what do I do???

DIRECTIONS COPIED BELOW, NOT MINE JUST COPIED AND PASTED

*Must have sd partitioned and using Amon-Ra Recovery!! Link Below to the correct one to use. Rename to PC36IMG.zip
Place PC36IMG.zip on root of sd card, then power off phone and hold the vol- and power button down until hboot loads. It will automatically scan for this and ask you to flash it, flash it and then boot into recovery to assure it worked.

Partitioning ur SD card formats ur card, u should have made a backup on ur PC beforehand. Sorry for ur luck. Just redownload whatever rom u want and place it on ur SD card and flash like normal.

wait..so was your SD partitioned? installing a custom recovery will not partition it for you.

you should have a recovery installed, copy your sd to the computer (to save everything as partitioning will erase it), partition using said recovery, install ROM

You only need to partitioned your sd once. Place the rom zip on the root of your sd card. In recovery wipe everything, But the sd card (as this is where your rom is). Choose flash zip from sd. Let it do its thing. Then reboot. You should be good.

Ok we are gonna take some steps here and get your problem solved,i know you probably did some of this,but we are gonna start over.

1)Go here and follow these instructions.... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1158993
2)If youve done that,then go to your bootloader,you should be able to get there from your recovery,if not turn off your phone,then turn it back on while holding down on your volume rocker,you will go to the bootloader.
3)Once in bootloader,scroll to hboot usb,make sure you have HTC sync installed on your pc.
4)Once your phone connects to your pc,open it up and you will be in the root of your sd card,go here.... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...k+Tremors+A2SD and install this.
5)before you have installed DT's Apps2sd,create new folders on your sd card,drag and drop the rom of your choice onto your sd card also.
6)Now go disconnect from your pc and reboot into your recovery,wipe everything but your sd card and install the new rom.
You should now be golden.
