    Exclamation Merge partitions back together?
    Hey guys,

    I've tried to install Windows 7 through Boot Camp. But something went wrong halfway into it and Windows 7 installed and took over my laptop (instead of asking for drivers or having the Boot Camp icon in order to go back to Mountain Lion).

    Needless to say, I had to stick my Install disk to format the partition I made for Windows: but now I have a partitioned 50GBs of space which I cannot undo no matter where I click.

    What can I do?

    You could have just rebooted and held down the Option key and selected your OSX partition. You can drag the OSX partition all the way down and get back the space in Disk Utility in OSX. If you need help let us know.

    Or you could have gone back into BootCamp and had it restore the partition back to the primary partition.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
