    I used bootcamp assistant to make a parition. I wanted to install Tiger on it.

    So I formatted it as GUID and installed. Everything was great.

    Now I no longer need the partition, but bootcamp will not let me restore it through the assistant. I reformatted the partition as OSX journaled... still no luck. Anyone know a way to get this through?

    Thanks a bunch for any input!

    Can you delete it using Disk Utility, then resize the primary partition to take up the whole drive?

    don't see any such option in disk utility.

    The error I get is:

    The startup disk must ve formatted as a single mac os extended (journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing windows.


    edit: nevermind, I think I got it. Had to go into 'partition' on the actual drive, not the volumes, in Disk Utility. Should be all good now. Thanks for the quick response!

    I didn't see your reply until this edit, glad it worked for you.
