Thread: Removing partitions
10-17-2006, 02:57 PM #1PamichGuestRemoving partitions
I partitioned my harddrive so I could triple boot OS X, XP and linux, but I don't use them enough to warrent the space. In Terminal, I typed in:
sudo diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 50G "Linux" Linux 10G "MS-DOS FAT32" Windows 10G
As I was following instructions and have no real idea what I was doing, how do I delete the linux and windows partitions so the entire disk is OS X nondestructively?

I don't believe there is a non destructive way to do this. Hopefully someone will come along with a solution you are looking for.
As for now the only way I know is to boot from your install media, repartition and then install the operating system. you would have to make a back up of all of your personal data. Since you can not do an archive and install.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

To be sure I don't screw up, how exactly would I go about doing that? All the options that appear to be right in Disk Utility are greyed out.
