I'm pretty sure I have checked everywhere that I can in the forums to find an answer, but maybe I didn't check well enough. Usually I can find the answer I'm looking for with enough searching. This is basically my last resort before starting from complete scratch on my mac. I have created a second partition using bootcamp for ubuntu before, and had no issues. I decided to erase the partitions to get the memory back, and had no issues. Everything erased just fine and I was back with one partition. This time, however, I got as far as booting up Linux and coming to a "no boot disk" issue. Of course, I found the solution (sync the two partitions from refit) after I decided to try and erase the partition and start all over. The partition did not erase. Up until this point, I have tried erasing from disk utility (both ways: clicking erase, or going to the main HD and then partition and then selected the bootcamp drive and clicking the minus button. It sits there saying "preparing to remove volume" and never does anything else.) I have also tried erasing by booting with the Leopard Disk and going through disk utility and the ubuntu disk and trying that. I have also tried using bootcamp assistant but common issues have come up with that as well (it tells me to reformat, once I do that it still does not work). So, unless there is something I am missing, I am in a pickle and I am about ready to erase everything and start fresh. Unless of course someone has any solutions. Please help.
