    i recently, created a boot camp partition. for linux but it didn't install correctly.

    i decided to get linux on a VM instead but disk utility wont delete partitions

    "Boot camp" "linuxswap" "disko4a" inside disk utility or bootcamp assistant

    boot camp says "already partitioned" disk utility just try's "prepare disk" for 5 hours+

    ive tryed remove the partition using disk utility's "-" button

    can anyone help?

    You should be able to remove the partition through Bootcamp.

    it states
    "the startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS extended Jouranaled volume (which it is) or already partitioned by bootcamp assitant"
