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

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.

Any ideas?

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

I also noticed this partition I want to remove now shows up under devices. It wasn't showing up before.

Edit: Resolved.
