    So I tried partitioning my macbook so I could run windows on it, but in the middle of the process, my computer froze, so I (stupidly) restarted it. When I logged back in I discovered that it had given away the instructed GBs, but there was no "Bootcamp" hard drive, and I cant un-partition it. Help please?

    What happens when you rerun the Bootcamp installer. During the process it should ask you to repartition the drive

    when i open boot camp again, it says:

    "Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

    And what am i looking for in disk utility?

    if it made the windows partition, then just boot off the Windows disc, format the new partition to NTFS and install.
