    I have XP installed in my Intel Macbook Pro in the separate partition created by boot camp. Recently while I was running on XP the computer crashed badly and XP system seemed to have been damaged and I can't boot as XP anymore. I would like to simply erase the partition and merge it with the main drive. But the problem is that Boot Camp got expired and I can't use the application to do that.

    Can anyone tell me how I can do that?? I am guessing that Disk Utility would be the one to use but I want to make sure I know what I am doing before I screw up anything... Please help!! Thanks.

    Trick your laptop into thinking that it is before the expiration date...
