BootCamp disaster!

Hi all

Basically, my little brother tried to install bootcamp onto his Macbook Pro which runs Moutain Lion.
However, he has somehow managed to not only forget his master password but also delete the partition for his whole macbook side of things.
Currently, only the windows partition works!

How do I use the timemachine - thankfully fully backed up to restore it back to just Mac ?


Thanks!
P.S.
I have the following also;
Windows CD,
Mountain Lion via iTunes and Lion on a USB
Timemachine - fully backed up

Boot the Mac up holding down Cmd + R (Internet Recovery Mode). This will give you the option to either Restore from TimeMachine or reinstall the OS from your USB flash drive. I've had this happen to me before (don't sweat it!)
