After vmware fusion has messed up on me and won't let me log back into windows xp, I would like to start over again and restore the partition, create a new one, and run bootcamp fresh. However, boot camp won't let me restore the partition (it just "thinks" forever and I have to just quit bootcamp and after that nothing has changed). Should I use the "erase" option in the disk utility? If so, what options/settings should I choose? And will that restore the partition back to one or will it just erase the contents on the windows partition?
