    Well you need to run Disk Utility from the menus at the first screen of your OSX installer disk (or your #1 System Restore disk that shipped with your Mac) and erase your hard drive, making sure it set back to 1 partition.

    Then proceed with a re-installation of OSX and try running the Boot Camp Assistant again (assuming that is how you were trying to partition for your Windows installation- and if not, you should be for simplicity).

    if you need a good guide for installing Windows with Boot Camp, see the Apple Boot Camp Support page and download the guide.
