    I installed Boot Camp on my Mac mini a while back, thinking it might be handy to have in the future. I partitioned my disk to give 20 GB of space to the Windows partition.

    However, when Apple revoked all licenses for the Boot Camp beta versions, I still had my disk partitioned. Now, Boot Camp Assistant says that the license has expired, and it won't let me get in to get rid of the Windows partition.

    Is there any way I can re-partition the disk without using something like Disk Utility that would erase all the data on the disk? I am currently running Tiger, so I don't have the option to just get the full version of Boot Camp.

    I don't know if this would work, but I will give it a try if I was in your situation.

    Try changing your date setting to a date back when Boot Camp beta was able to be used. Disconnect your mac from the internet while doing it.

    Or Find a friend with Leopard and see if you can remove your HDD partition from its mac.
