    So I decided I want to make my Mac HD one whole partition again but I don't know how to do it. I had tried using boot camp, but it was giving me an error. So I cloned my HD and now I've booted into the clone and am wondering how I can delete everything on the Mac HD and reformat it into just one partition. I tried searching but couldn't find it.

    Thanks

    It shouldn't be as complicated as all that. You just delete the second partition, and then you resize the first partition to use the extra space.

    Leopard's Disk Utility can resize an HFS+ partition non-destructively.

    I just figured it out. I needed to click on the icon showing the GB amount of the drive which selects the entire HD, then the partition option showed.

    Thank you, I just got it seconds after I posted.:confused:

    I'm new to all of this Windows on OSX, partitioning, etc. I bought this iMac last year but just now have been messing around with this stuff. This forum is awesome.
