    In a completely indescribable act of stupidity, I tried to use Winclone to create a zero GB Windows partition, and now I am trying to instead use Bootcamp to create the partition. Unfortunately, I need to first "Restore Disk to Single Volume" and so far this has taken several hours. I was just wondering if anyone knew exactly how long it would take to remove the previous partition, and any other advice pertinent to my situation would be appreciated.

    I have done it several times and it took less than 60seconds.

    Try using disk utility and see what happens then. Let us know what result you get.

    The disk utility is only showing one partition, but every time I try to click the Create or Remove Windows Partition it takes me straight to the remove part. Also, now when I try to create a partition with Winclone it tells me there are no disks attached with a single partition. I did a complete erase and install and of Leopard and it hasn't helped.
