    I accidently erased my partition in Disk Utility. Quickly after I remembered I was suppose to restore to one partition in Boot Camp Assistant. So basically now I have my Macintosh HD and a blank HSF+ partition named Windows. Boot Camp wont let me restore, Boot Camp wont let me reinstall windows to try again. How can I delete this, and give the space back to Mac OS X?

    Check in Boot Camp Assistant. There should be an option to remove Windows partition.

    Lol. Thats what I'm saying, there isn't one. I accidently formatted the Windows partition, so boot camp doesnt see it as Windows anymore, and I can't delete it.

    Have you tried formatting the windows partition in Disk Utility to a windows type and then attempt using bootcamp?
