    Okay, I want to uninstall Windows on my Mac, as Ive said in the Title.
    How do I do that?

    Will it erase any information on my Mac???

    I do want to erase everything related to Windows on my Mac.

    What should I do to prepare for this action?

    How exactly does it work?

    Do I have to backup my Mac info using TM?

    Will it give me all the 15GB I used to make the partition?

    Please answer these questions. Im mostly concerned about if it will delete everything off of my Mac...
    Thanks, Luc

    Re-run the Boot Camp Assistant and it will offer to restore your system to Mac-only. Easy :)

    It won't delete anything on the Mac side.

    Removing windows is much less tedious than putting it in. I know that I was happy to be rid of bootcamp when I deleted my partition. All that rebooting was awful, and the numerous free (virtualbox, q-emu) and premium (vmware, parallels) virtualization options for windows make it fairly obsolete unless you want to play win-only games or you really like autodesk software.
