    I just received an iMac from a friend who didn't need it anymore. When I started it up, I noticed there were two hard drives on the desktop: "Macintosh HD" and "Untitled." I know the Untitled is used for running Boot Camp but I don't want to use Windows on this machine. I'd like to erase that drive and move it's memory over to the "Macintosh HD." Any ideas?

    Go into Applications, Utilities, Boot Camp Utility, and erase the partition.

    Ok, I opened up Finder and when I went to Utilities, there was no Boot Camp Utility. There was, however, a disk utility and I opened up that but it wouldn't let me erase the "untitled" disk. All the fields were grayed out and I couldn't do anything except unmount it. Any ideas what's wrong?

    it might have been just a external drive unplugged improperly, see if your hardrive size matches your Macintosh hd size
