    I've done this a billion times... When trying to remove the bootcamp partition to return the hard drive to only 1 partition, it says, "Partition failed: This operation requires a newer version of Mac OS X for this disk." I use to be on Mountain Lion but downgraded to Snow Leopard so I still have my 10.8 recover partition. I tried booting off of that using that disk utility and it still wouldn't work, giving me a different error "Unable to unmount Bootcamp partition".

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Did you try opening the Boot Camp Utility application? You might still have the ML version for some reason and the drivers are messed up. Just an idea.

    Bootcamp assistant doesn't work either... It says something about the drive has to be journaled, but I checked and it is...
