    I was running Boot Camp to get Windows on my computer and I accidently wiped my hard drive. Well, technically I wiped it and now it's formatted in the NTFS format. I would love to get my Mac operation system back on. Unfortunatly the NTFS is read-only and I need it to be in HFS+ to reload the operation system. Is there any coding that I can put in terminal to make it format back to HFS+? If not, then is there anything else that may fix the problem?

    I don't think you're going to be able to convert the format, and in truth even if you could I doubt it'd be a good idea to do something like that to the boot drive.

    Only option is going to be to backup your files, reformat as HFS+, and reinstall OSX.
