How to Remove Boot Camp Partition

Postby Turboladdade » December 25th, 2007, 7:09 pm

I am working on my friend's MacBook and he has a 10 GB Windows partition created with Boot Camp, but his Boot Camp beta expired and he doesn't want the Boot Camp partition anymore anyway... but we can't figure out how to remove the partition and he could really use the extra 10 GB on his main partition.

Any ideas?
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

I think the only way to remove it is to either backup everything and reformat the HD, or use Leopard to run the bootcamp assistant and remove the partition.

Actually we eventually figured it out. It was quite easy with Disk Utility. Simply deleted the partition, then increased the partition size of Macintosh HD and clicked "Apply" - worked like a charm.

Yeah this machine was running Leopard - which I had just helped him install.
