    so sorry i dont know whats the appropriate question should be
    anyway
    i own 2009 MBP
    and i just recently upgraded to Mountain Lion and i do clean install from scratch.
    i've installed windows 7 on it as well using the bootcamp
    so my HDD now have 2 partitions
    1 for mac
    1 for windows
    anyway i did something wrong on the windows and iwant to format the window partition and fresh install windows again , there.

    do i need to use bootcamp again to delete the partition and create the partition again ?

    or i can just put in the windows installation dvd, then boot from it and install it straight away "over" the previous windows ?

    You don't need to delete the partition, however since there is a problem with your Windows now, I don't think you can upgrade if thats what you intend to do, but otherwise a clean install works the same way.
