    Reboot the computer and when its booting hit the cmd-r key combination. That will get you into the recovery partition. From there you can reformat your drive and reinstall OSX

    run bootcamp assistant found in Applications>Utilities and you can remove the partition from there. You'll need to do this before reinstalling OSX
