    Duff-Man says....did you try reading the Bootcamp manual?

    Try running the Bootcamp assistant and follow the instructions to remove the "windows" partition....oh yeah!

    Clone your startup disk to an external drive using Superduper and then boot off the external. Then repartition your internal hdd and copy everything back from the external.
