    hi guys
    i have mac book pro with windows 7 os
    i noticed that if i dont need a mac why should i keep a 250 gb hfs drive
    so i tried to delete the partition and it worked
    but when i tried to create a new ntfs partition the windows crashed with the blue screen
    and when the macbook restarted there was a massage:
    no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key
    the problem is that i really need the files on my windows desktop
    can anyone tell me what to do

    If yours has a DVD drive, put the windows disk inside and try to repair the Windows install.

    And, I think (Hopefully so) you learned a lesson, always keep a backup, especially when tinkering with the OS and its partitions.

    What model MBP do you have, reason I ask is, if you have a newer MBP, like 2011 there is an option to boot into recovery.
    But even without it there might be a chance you can fix it.

    If for instance you have a DVD drive and the OS X Installer disks you could install OS X again on the now empty partition, note here, if you deleted that partition you need to partition that Volume/Empty Space/Partition, not the Windows partition.
    Then install OS X.
    Boot into OS X, get a trail of Paragon NTFS for Mac, Install it, Open Disk Utility, click on the Windows partition and repair it.
    This might solve it, if not you can still get the data of it from the OS X side.
