    If I decide to partition my hard drive for Windows XP. If I later regret it. Can it be undone?

    Yes, the Boot Camp Assistant lets you restore your disk to a single partition.

    Yes, very easily. Once you open the Bootcamp Assistant it is as simple as pressing one button. :)

    Yes, Boot Camp can remove the partition for you.

    I know this is an old thread but this is what I am trying to do. The problem I'm having however is that I used Bootcamp beta and it has now expired so when I open Bootcamp it gives me a warning that it has expired and closes. Is there a way to undo the partition without bootcamp. Thanks for any help.

    You'd have to erase the drive and repartition it as one.

    You can probably get around the Boot Camp expiration by turning back the system clock though. :rolleyes:

    Turning back the system clock worked. Thanks so much.:)
