    I've gone through some threads about removing a BootCamp partition.. but when I start up BootCamp it says, "Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

    What exactly does this mean? :confused:

    Now it says "MediaKit reports no such partition"

    Why is this so difficult to remove? :mad::confused:

    I had the same problem. I ended up having to reinstall from a time machine backup. Huge PITA and I don't think I'll be using bootcamp again.
