    Well one day we installed Windows and it hasn't installed c ompletly so I wanted to get rid of it but I couldn't and the "hard drive" or the area that ahs window son it is there but it is invisable. Even making it visable using onyx did not work. I tired disk utility and that wouldn't work either.

    How can I erase the useless windows part?

    I wanted to get more space on my hard drive and I wanted to reinstall it some other time from the start.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    Run Boot Camp Assistant. Choose restore, hit okay.

    Ah just checked and it sounds right.

    Now if I do this, no damage will happen to anything else but erasing that windows part of my computer?

    There is always a chance that something might get screwed up. I would use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a backup of Mac OS X before you restore it.

    what percent chance would it get screwed up?

    I would use that program, but if it is paid I don't want to waste more money on something like that and even then reinstalling all my programs.
