I have bootcamp on my MacBook Pro, and I just bought a gaming PC so I don't have to keep playing on the MacBook. I want to uninstall everything on windows 7 but if I just remove the windows partition will that basically uninstall everything? Hope you understand what I mean. I want to be able to start up the gaming PC and just install everything on there. It's mainly games from steam, gamefly.

The answer is yes but you need to remove the Boot Camp partition the correct way. And the correct way is to boot back to OS X, run the Boot Camp Assistant once more and delete the partition from there. That will remove everything and return all the used disk space back to OS X. Be sure to backup and save what you need from Windows 7 before doing so.

Correct, and make sure you take that unallocated space and merge it back into 1 partition so OSX can use it. Very simple.

He doesn't have to merge anything since the Boot Camp assistant does it automatically.
