    As the long thread title says (sorry about that) If you got sick of windows that you installed in boot camp after making a partition using the boot camp utility.. how do you uninstall windows and re apply the partition windows was on back to your leopard partition?

    Can you simply use disk utility to wipe your boot camp partition? and then can you re apply that space back to your leopard partition?

    Use the Boot Camp Assistant to delete the partition, not disk utility

    Run the Boot Camp Assistant again and restore to a single partition.

    Doesn't take a big risk putting the partition back together? Backup your drive first.

    Little to no risk. Disk partitioning in Leopard is non-destructive. As far as backing up, that should be done regularly anyway (like brushing one's teeth or changing underwear ;)), making a "special" backup in this case redundant.

    You do back up regularly, riiight? :D
