    Hi,
    I installed Yosemite on a 2nd partition and now I want to get rid of it. When I boot to Mavericks, Disk Utility does not allow me to modify any of the two partitions ( - button disabled). When I boot to Recovery 10.9, I can only delete my Mavericks partition but not the Yosemite one. The - button is disabled when I select the 2nd partition.

    How can I remove it ?

    cheers

    Did you try to boot up in the recovery partition to try to delete it.
