    Hi everyone, this is my first post. I am in extreme need of help as I stupidly made my Boot camp partition take away around 50 GB of my HDD space, so I really need to know how to delete it, I tried to do it in Disk Utility but it didn't work. So I was trying to do it when I re-istalled Leopard but i'm not sure what I have to do just before I install it, so can anyone help me?:confused:

    You do it through the Boot Camp Assistant

    i dont think you have to do anything before you reinstall leopard. when you insert the leopard disc it will probably take you to a screen that lets you configure/delete partitions. I'm not sure though because i have partitioned my HDD before. But maybe you should try inserting the disc first.

    Hope that works!

    I done it in boot camp assistant also, just forgot to mention it. And when it lets you delete partitions and stuff, it doesn't let me.

    Can you be more specific? What happens when it "doesn't let" you? Because it is supposed to be done this way.

    What part? When it lets you delete stuff when you run the installer or when you run boot camp assistant?

    just explain it all.
    Anyway open boot camp assistant and tell it to merge the partitions, or delete the windows partition.

    Slight hitch... It said it cant be restored to a single partition, it also mentioned something about it needs to be journaled as a Mac OS X Journaled thingy...

    That just means to write about it in your journal.

    It's always a good idea to keep a journal ;)
