    Trying to erase my Windows 8 partition (NWFS) but Boot Camp Assistant failed and so did Disk utility, saying that it couldn't recognise the file system.

    How can I get rid of this thing?

    Is it NTFS? And what Mac OS X version do you use? How did you install Windows on your Mac?

    Try removing the partition with the Partition tab in Disk Utility instead of erasing the partition.

    "Partition failed with the error:

    Couldn’t modify partition map because file system verification failed."
