    I just received my first mac and I wasnt the first one to open it but heres the problem:

    On the desktop I have a drive called "ok" and a drive called "BOOTCAMP". How do I make them back into one drive for only mac OS and how do I rename "ok". I doubt that was its default name. I tried a restore with the restore disks but they were still there afterwards.

    Two ways to do this.

    1. Open up Bootcamp Assistant in the Utilities folder and it should have an option to remove the bootcamp partition. After that just the drive labeled ok should be on your desktop. Do a very slow double click on the name of it or right click and choose "Get Info". Both ways should let you rename it to whatever you want.

    2. Go to restore again but this time instead of going through the restore click on the Utilities menu at the top and open Disk Utility. This will let you erase and format the drive into one drive named how you want. Then continue with the restore. Keep in mind all data on the hard drive will be lost when you do this so if you have any personal files be sure to back them up.

    Thank you so much! I've been fiddling for hours trying to figure it out.
