Hey guys,
I cannot deleted a partitioned HD that was on the MAC when I brought it. My Mac keeps prompting me to delete space on the Start Up disk. I only had like 250 meg left so I started deleting all these applications that I didnt need, which is stupid, because I have 30gb in this partitioned HD. I want to delete that HD so my Start Up disk has 30+gb available.

Thanks for your help.

PS - i will need step by step guides if you ahve the time. thanks

The only way you will be able to remove the partition is back up your system. Recreate a single partition and reload the OS. Then load on your personal data.
