    I was running Mac OS Leopard.
    I installed bootcamp and then windows 7.
    I don't want to use windows 7 anymore and revert back to only Mac.

    The mac partition stopped allowing me access into it 2 months ago and windows is now giving me problems.
    I uninstalled bootcamp from the mac disc but for some reason shows.
    I was able to delete the mac partition from 'disk management' on windows but will not allow me to delete/format bootcamp (C:) or windows called: GRMCULFRER_EN_DVD (D:)

    I have tried restarting with windows 7 disc whilst pressing F8. It takes me to dos screen asking to begin in safemode etc but does not give me a dos or command prompt inorder for me to fdisc.
    I have tried restarting with mac disc whilst holding c key but nothing happens.

    how do I format the hard drive so can install my leopard os starting with a fresh hard drive :)

    Reboot when you hear the startup tone hold down the Option key and choose the OS X partition to restart. Once it has booted run Boot Camp Assistant and it will help you uninstall Windows.

    If for some reason you cannot boot from OS X insert the Leopard Install discs that came with the computer then restart and when you hear the Startup Tone hold down the Option key and choose the Install Disc, from there you can choose the language, then choose the Utilities menu and do an install of OS X.
