Hello all,

I'm in need of some serious help.
The other day I was looking around for a feature that might help me have a retractable menu bar. I came across Menufela and installed without thinking twice... I figured if it was really that bad I could delete it from the preference panes or as an app like everything else.

Turns out the very opposite is true. I did a restart and noticed that I hung on a blue screen. So I restarted in Windows on bootcamp (which worked) and read around only to find, well, that I had really fed up my beloved.

So I hunted around for a solution, found this:
Leopard Install Blue Screen - CONFIRMED Solution - Mac Forums
and followed the steps to remove the prefpane, plist files and etc from single user mode... and I'm still hanging on the screen.

So now I'm in a serious dilemma. I've contacted apple support and they told me to archive and install... but I (1) can't find my other boot disc and (2) have 6.2 Gigs of free space on my Mac partition, so wouldn't be able to anyway.


Is there any way I can delete my windows partition from either the disc utility on the os x boot disc or windows or anything so I can get enough room to to an archive and install?
Would an archive and install make me lose all of my applications on the OS X?
Have I any hope of just deleting something else from the single user mode to make it work again? Am I missing something from the steps on the macrumors link I posted?

by the way, I'm running the latest model of the "old" 15" mbp with leopard.

Thank you in advance for the help,
QUOTE Thanks
