    If you have removed the Bootcamp partition then as far as I know you will have to repartition with Disk Utility and restore.

    Take a backup of your 500GB partition and while you do that I'm sure someone who has done this before will be along to advise (I haven't, don't run Bootcamp)...

    macbookpro hard disk patition

    i have a time mc backup. when looking at the 750gb disk with disk utility 500gb is the mac partition the space below is i assume 250gb that was the boot partition. i have tried to resize the mac partition to the full 750 gb in disk utility but this didn't work, would that be because it was window format partition ,
    how can i delete the 250gb partition

    Once OSX is running on the 500GB partition, run bootcamp and remove the 250GB partition and it'll take back the space.
