    Using Boot Camp I formatted the disk for a windows install. I then added a FAT32 partition.

    I have a HFS+, NTFS and FAT32. I wish to remove the NTFS and FAT32 and have the HFS+ retake up the space.

    I have done this before but lost my instructions and google is not helping at the moment.

    Any ideas?

    Run Boot Camp install again, and you can repartition your HD with it to remove the NTFS and FAT partitions.

    Won't work. Boot Camp only supports one additional partition. I added the FAT32 so boot camp is broke.

    What is the diskutil command to delete a partition slice. I think I can resize it using the command line.

    Wish I could find my notes!

    "diskutil resizevolume" if you type in just "diskutil" it will give you options, if you type in diskutil <verb> (from the previous list) it will give you a detailed usage.

    i.e. to get more info on the full syntax of resize just type in "diskutil resizevolume" without the quotes

    Warning: not for the faint of heart

    Another option if you have an external drive.

    - Clone to external HD.

    - Reformat HD to HFS+ or whatever you want.

    - Clone back from external HD.

    Done!

    Edit: You can use Carbon Copy Cloner or Super Duper to do this.
