    it says it cant
    The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.

    that is what pops up

    Then try Disk Utility and delete the Windows partition, then drag the divider of the Mac OS X partition to the bottom.

    The delete button is the one with the "-" (minus).

    i must be looking at the wrong thing because there is no minus sign a plus one and a ton of erase options but no minus disk utility right?
