    I made a partition by using the cd, and I made a new account which I didnt want, how do I get rid of the new partition and go back to the original user?
    Now I dont see the original user there but the hd space is taken up mostly by the old user that I use. :confused:

    If you made a new partition on your hard drive, that would have completely erased the hdd, so unless you have a back up of the old system i think your stuck.

    Why and how did you make a partition in the first place, and why did you create a new user?

    What version of OS X are you running, what generation MacBook Pro are you using?

    We need more info.

    What do you mean, you didn't have any other choice?

    I never got to a screen, where I was forced to create a new partition just for dips.

    No it didnt give me those choices, it went straight to selecting a country.

    That is normal*. What did happen after you selected the proper language?
    Provide as much detail as possible.
