    Reformatting Mac partition but leave Windows partition
    I finally got my Time Capsule today and have backed up my music, videos, etc. I've been having some serious issues with my Mac so would like to do a clean wipe/install of my Mac OS but I want to leave bootcamp/windows partition which I have no issues with(ironic that I'm having issues with Mac OS and not windows I know).

    Is this possible? I know I can find the steps on how to do a clean wipe/install somewhere on the net, probably even in these forums, but I want to ensure that I don't accidentally erase my windows partition first.

    Thanks
