I do not know how to clean it up, but I do know that you should remove the boot camp partition via the boot camp assistant for the cleanest removal (not disk utility) in OS X
^^ This. Try running the Bootcamp Assistant and seeing what it does for you.
The bootcamp assistant did not allow me remove it. I don't know what to do at the moment. I did not use the bootcamp assistant to upgrade to Windows 8.1. That might be the problem.
I haven't found a solution to this yet. I tried command+r when booting the computer but nothing seems to work.
Explain please, so you're not able to run internet recovery (command R) either? What does your machine do?
I tried both methods. It's the same as using disk utility unfortunately. I even tried the bootcamp assistant and nothing.
It should not be if done correctly - do you see a spinning earth/globe icon?
If so, go into internet recovery's disk utility and format individual partitions first (not the entire physical volume). I format them all to Mac journaled and when you've erased all partitions, then you should be able to select the physical drive and run another erase.
the last time i tried messing with a bootcamp partition it left 50gb of unused space in a grey area and when i tried to reclaim it said error could not unmount disk. I had to enter internet recovery and reformat my whole hd as 1 partition and redo everything
Internet Recovery's Disk Utility did not work.
What are my options?
I also noticed this partition I want to remove now shows up under devices. It wasn't showing up before.
