    Hey guys, I started bootcamp on my imac running leopard and I had to stop before you choose what kind of partition you use on that blue screen (D H etc I can't remember) Well I stopped and restarted comp b/c I forgot where to save windows.

    Once back in OSX I have an empty windows partition labeled bootcamp. When run bootcamp I cannot remove it or start bootcamp up in this partition, any ideas how to get rid of it?

    Thanks guys!

    startup the Windows installer again and choose the C: partition to install Windows on. it should be labelled "<BOOT CAMP>" or something and its partition size which you chose in Boot Camp Assistant will be shown beside it in megabytes.

    or you can open Boot Camp Assistant while in OS X and remove the windows partition and start again.
