    hey, i have the latest 17" i7 macbook pro and installed windows 7 64 bit on 100 gb partition. long story short, i decided to delete the partition for now and install another time. it deleted fine, but every time i turn the computer on, it will load and say " no bootable device" but if i turn on holding option, the mac partition shows up fine and loads normally when i click on it.

    i just need help completely getting rid of the partition. my mac hd says 500gb capacity. so its not partitioned any more....

    Go into Startup Disk in System Preferences and select your Mac OS X drive.

    To remove a Boot Camp partition, you have to run the Boot Camp Assistant and remove the Windows partition.

    As for the error, go into System Preferences and select Startup Disk. Make sure your Mac OS X install is the one selected.

    Will deleting/removing the Windows bootcamp partition affect the files that are on the rest of the OSX HDD? Or will it simply restore the space that the Windows partition was using?
