    Have you used Boot Camp Assistant (BCA) to delete it?
    Can't you use BCA to create a new one? Have you tried Disk Utility and seen, if there is an unformatted partition? What Mac OS X version do you have?



    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses. (see rule #3 under Minor Problems)
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    How can you eject the Boot Camp partition?

    Anyway, to see if it is still there, go to Disk Utility and see, if the Boot Camp partition shows up there, and if it does, click on it and see, if you can mount it, there is a blue icon for Mounting/Unmounting there.

    Could it be, that you dragged the Boot Camp icon of the Finder's Sidebar? If so, click on your Macintosh HD icon and press CMD+ArrowUp and see, if the Boot Camp partition shows up there.

    In other words, the Boot Camp partition does not show up in Finder and in Disk Utility?

    What happens, if you us Boot Camp Assistant to create a Windows partition?

    And can you remember how you ejected or deleted the Boot Camp partition?

    Normally you can't eject the Boot Camp partition, and if you just ejected it, it is not deleted and should show up in Disk Utility.
    Unless you have Boot Camp on an external HDD or second internal HDD.

    What exact Mac do you have?

    when i going to continue the BCA then it say

    The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.

    And what does Disk Utility say? Ca you make a screenshot of the Disk Utility window, once when selected the HDD and once when selected the second partition, if there is one?

    Either use www.tinypic.com or the Additional Options > Manage Attachments section below the text entry field of your next post.

    With TinyPic you can copy the IMG link:

    Seems like you need to backup your system via Time Machine or make a clone via Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper onto an external HDD and erase the entire HDD via Disk Utility from the Restore DVD and restore from the Time Machine backup or clone the cloned backup back to the internal HDD.

    It seems, Windows is gone. Do you have at least the lost GBs back, meaning if you have an HDD with a capacity of 500GB and used BCA to make a 100GB partition for Windows and had one partition for Mac OS X with 400GB and one partition for Windows with 100GB, do you have gained the 100GB back and now have a 500GB partition for Mac OS X again?

    As far as I know, erasing your HDD completely and reinstalling Mac OS X, like I mentioned above, is the only solution.

    Maybe MRoogle can give you more information about that BCA message you get.
