    Hi Folks,

    My GF and I are (finally) getting our new 24" baby delivered today. She's a photographer and will be using the Mac side of things, I'm a gamer and want to run windows in bootcamp, as well as rediscovering Macs after a 15 year hiatus.

    What I'm wondering is, if (perhaps when...) windows s***s itself under a bootcamp partition, is it possible to: (A) just wipe the partition and restore it to an "all-Mac" drive, and (B) reformat the partition and try again with windows?

    This is really to allay my lady's fears that if I taint our machine with windows and it stuffs up, that it can be rectified easily enough. Thanks :)

    You can do both, in OSX the bootcamp manager I guess you can say, will revert back to single partition (just OSX) with just 1 click.

    And if you want you can reformat as well, I've done it a few times.

    Your title makes me feel anal. You wrote nub but you mean newb or noob.

    Apologies for any contribution I have made to your "anal-ness", the term in question has been interchangeable for as long as I've been using forums, so I figured it would be interpreted readily enough :eek:.

    For a second after reading the title I thought I was playing Counter Strike.
