Hey all you MR'ers, here's a stumper for you. I have my drive partitioned as such:  EFI  Macintosh HD (HFS+)  Linux Root (ext32)  Linux Swap I decided Linux isn't my thing, and wanted to go back to Windows. I deleted the two linux partitions,  and , and created a new NTFS partition in that space and installed Windows XP. Upon booting into the new Windows partition, I got a corrupt/misplaced HAL.DLL error, which I understand is related to a corrupt partition map. (Among other things, but none which fit my case.) The Boot Camp Assistant also cannot restore the volume to a single partition, since it "wasn't partitioned using Boot Camp." I can't really wipe my drive, or even backup and wipe, since I have a lot of things installed under the hood, like MySQL, various Tomcat configurations, ANT libraries, etc. that would be near-impossible to re-configure again. I'm no partition/drive expert, so I was hoping someone here would have run into the same prolem, and maybe has a solution? Or suggestions? Thanks! Happy Holidays to all as well!
