    I want to delete all the data on the mac partition, while keeping the Windows side untouched. I will be reinstalling Mac OSX on a new partition.
    I want to make sure I'm good before I do anything.

    Do I simply delete the partition and create a new one? Or will that affect the Windows partition?

    I know that doing this for the Windows side will be safe, but I don't know if I can split the Windows partition after deleting the Mac side.

    Oh! Silly me, I thought that when I deleted the partition it would literally be deleted, and I would have to create a new one. And the issue of splitting the windows side was new to me.
