I purchased an Early 2015 Macbook Pro. I have nothing installed on it that needs to be saved. Being new to using an Apple product, I failed at attempting to setup dual boot with Win10. Now I am stuck with what looks like a messed up SSD. I tried to return it to a single 250GB partition and ended up with a mess. Disk Utility shows Container disk3 with MacOS 152GB, Container disk1 8GB and Container disk2 90.79GB. How do I get this back to normal ?

OP:

Audit's suggestion is the right one.
But MAKE SURE that you boot to "internet recovery" and NOT to "the recovery partition".

To get to internet recovery, press the power button and IMMEDIATELY hold down "command-option-R" and keep holding them down for a while.

You should see the "internet symbol" onscreen.
You'll probably have to enter your wifi password, as well.

One other suggestion when you get up-and-running:
Instead of BootCamp, if you need Windows, I'd suggest a "virtual solution" instead -- such as Parallels, VMWare Fusion, or the free "Virtual Box".

Got it back to normal, thanks to Audit13. Tried to dual boot again and it failed. Found an article that said the latest Windows 10 iso was the problem. Succeded with Windows 10 iso 1703 release.
