    I would appreciate any help!

    I tried to install Bootcamp on my computer and it just didn't go very well. So I have given up on trying to run the two and got a pc to do any work I need to do on that. my problem is that I now cannot delete the partition that I made? looking for any suggestions.

    So far i have gone to the disk utility and see the two hard drives. I plan to put the two back into one again and then run the restart disks to start over with everything to make it simple. When i click on the partition that i want to delete, it won't give me the option to erase (it is there, but when i click on it, it says....

    "To erase a disk or volume, select its icon, specify a format and name, and click Erase."

    Well i have selected the disk, (there is no icon), Volume Format: Windows NT Filesystem (is there but can't be highlighted) and Erase isn't highlighted as well.

    I would really appreciate the time anyone has to help me with this issue. I might be going at it all wrong but i just want to get rid of the partition and start over from square one.

    Try using the boot camp assistant to remove the windows partition.

    I have the same problem, and I tried to resolve it with boot camp, but my boot camp didn't work. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    I had to search for the Boot Camp Assistant, in the finder. Open the finder and type in Boot Camp Assistant and you should find it somewhere in there. once you find it, run it, and then un-install the boot camp and make your hard drive one again. hope this helps.
