    I recently partitioned my harddrive for windows xp to be installed with bootcamp but now I would rather run VMware fusion. I haven't yet backed up my hard drive. Is this a problem? Is there anyway to return to previous settings without losing it all? I have a lot of stuff on my computer is why I ask. Also, if i made a backup of my computer now, will that not work because I am doing so with a partitioned drive? Help asap please

    You can just delete the partition for XP and everything will be fine. Just use Boot Camp Assistant to delete it (User\Utilities\Boot Camp Assistant).

    bootcamp assistant will probably be the easiest and simple fast way.
